Chemical Engineering


We are one of the top research and teaching chemical engineering departments in the UK. Core research activities focus on the following themes: Energy and CO₂; Sustainable Manufacturing; Health and Environment. The EPSRC has awarded the department £5 million towards the establishment of a Centre for Nature Inspired Engineering at UCL. The department hosts the Centre for Grid Scale Energy, and the UCL Electrochemical Innovation Laboratory, which focus on the commercialisation of energy and CO₂ technology development. All our graduate programmes are accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).

Staff View

"UCL in itself, with its amazingly diversified biomedical research, is an endless source of ideal collaborators, most of which are world leading. There are by far more interesting projects than there is time to be able to carry them out."

Dr Alessandro Olivo

Professor of Applied Physics

Subject: Medical Physics and Bioengineering, Faculty: Engineering Sciences

Alumni View

"The contacts I made through UCL Medical Physics & Bioengineering, in which I studied, provided numerous opportunities for career progression. I chose to follow a career in industry, but remaining in academia or working in healthcare were also very plausible options."
