UCL Chemical Engineering
- What is Chemical Engineering?
Chemical engineers apply scientific and technological expertise to develop processes which alter the chemical, physical, or biochemical state of materials. With an emphasis on safety, sustainability and cost-effectiveness, as a chemical engineer, your skills will be in demand worldwide for the manufacture of essential products.
- Chemical Engineering at UCL
UCL’s Department of Chemical Engineering is one of the best in the country. You will be taught by lecturers recognised as international leaders in their field. The department offers an impressive national and international network of industrial contacts and has strong collaborative links with other university departments in the UK and abroad. The degree is part of an integrated programme across engineering providing opportunities to broaden your horizons through interactions with other disciplines.
There is also the flexibility to choose the fine details of your individual degree options gradually as you progress through the programme. The department hosts the Centre for CO2 Technology – the hub of energy and CO2 technology development in the department, and a focus for energy research at UCL. The department is also a partner in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering, UCL CoMPLEX and the UCL Materials Chemistry Centre.
- How we teach
Our world-class teaching is focused on producing engineers who understand the context of their work, who are independent and self-directed, and who want to have an impact in their field. Our integrated undergraduate framework offers discipline-specific, technical programmes while bringing students together for a broader range of multi-disciplinary projects. Transferable professional skills, such as communication and ethics, are taught alongside engineering design using real world examples tailored to each subject.
This applied approach to learning is known to create well-rounded graduates with a strong grasp of the fundamentals of their discipline and with a broad understanding of the complexity and context of engineering problems.
For further details please see our integrated engineering programme website.
Applications are now open for the following PhD studentships.
