UCL Department of Chemical Engineering


Join our Graduate Open Events

We are delighted to offer five 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.

We offer MSc programmes at both our Bloomsbury and Stratford Campuses.  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. 

Our UCL East MSc 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
