UCL Department of Chemical Engineering


Register for our graduate open days and learn more about our new MScs

We are delighted to offer three new interdisciplinary MSc programmes at UCL Chemical Engineering. These courses are designed to enable the next generation of engineers and scientists to harness new technologies and methodologies that are transforming the materials, manufacturing and transport industries and hold the key to ensuring sustainable development in these sectors.

Our courses are housed in purpose-built, state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary labs – the Manufacturing Futures Lab and the Advanced Propulsion Lab – at Marshgate in UCL's brand-new campus in East London. UCL is world-leading university, ranked 8th overall in QS World University Rankings 2023, with our department being ranked 19th globally for Chemical Engineering

These courses respond to a demand within industry and academia reflected in job openings in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, healthcare, electronics and automotive, green & renewable energy, food and fine chemicals and many others, as well as PhD positions at universities in the UK and internationally. Significant investment is being made in these areas in the private and public sectors alike. 

Interested in learning more?

Join one of our open days this April. We will be running three virtual open days along with one joint face-to-face Graduate Open Evening on 26th April from 4 PM - 6 PM. Programme applications for a September start close on 30 June 2023.
