Situated in the heart of London on the main campus of UCL (University College London), the department is one of the top research and teaching Chemical Engineering departments in the UK, achieving world class standing. Research is a major departmental activity with 75% of staff rated as world leading or of internationally excellent quality in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise carried out by HEFCE. The Department hosts the Centre for CO2 Technology which is the hub of energy and CO2 technology development in the department and a focus for energy research at UCL. The department is a partner in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering, UCL CoMPLEX and the UCL Materials Chemistry Centre.



The Department offers a range of first degree and post-graduate programmes in chemical engineering. These include four-year MEng degrees, some giving the opportunity for one-year's study abroad in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, or the USA, a three-year BEng, and a one-year MSc in Chemical Process Engineering as well as a full PhD programme.

All our taught-course programmes are accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and by Engineering Council.
