About the Department

UCL Department of Chemical Engineering is recognised as one of the very best in the country. Our department is ranked 4th in the United Kingdom and 18th worldwide (QS World University Ranking 2020). 

Chemical engineers apply scientific and technological expertise to turn raw materials into useful, everyday products - so from the clothes that we wear, the food that we eat, and the fuels that we use, everyone relies on chemical engineering in one form or another. With an emphasis on safety, sustainability and cost-effectiveness, you'll further develop important skills for the manufacture of essential products that will put you in demand across the world. 

Our department offers an impressive national and international network of industrial contacts and we have strong collaborative links with other university departments in the UK and abroad.
