Biochemical engineering research quality and impact highlighted in the most recent REF 2014 outcome
Our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are all highly regarded, offering students the chance to learn from international experts in unique facilities. These are housed in-state-of-the-art pilot-plant and laboratories at UCL in the very heart of London.
The UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering is at the forefront of bioprocess research and is the largest centre in the UK. In the latest Research Assessment Exercise 75% of academic staff were rated as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'. Our interdisciplinary Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering (ACBE) coordinates bioprocess research and training collaborations with more than a dozen UCL departments, a similar number of external university partners and over 40 international companies.
Three major themes run through our research programmes:
- Industrial biotechnology
- Macromolecular bioprocessing
- Cell therapy bioprocessing
Over 75% of our research projects are collaborative with industry and all address strategically significant issues, frequently on a truly global scale. This close working relationship with industry provides unparalleled opportunities for our research teams to tackle long term problems with leaders in the sector and is a hallmark of the UCL approach.
