Program description

Chemical and Process Engineering Research PhD

With the oldest continuing chemical engineering programme in England, we are a highly respected and award-winning department with a wealth of experience and expertise in the subject.

Our interdisciplinary research work involves activities with cross-cutting themes, investigating materials and devices with the Advanced Technology Institute while addressing challenges in information technology. The recently established Centre for Advance Process Intensification offers a research platform for sustainable manufacturing, leading to the development of new and improved concepts of processing methods and equipment for chemical and energy conversion systems.

Research in the Department is highly multi-disciplinary and we enjoy excellent collaborations with Materials, Chemistry, the Ion Beam Centre, the Surrey Space Centre, the Centre for Environment and Sustainability, and the 5G Innovation Centre, as well as access to their facilities. We are internationally recognised for our water research, for which the University was the recipient of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize. We have also taken the first step towards ‘industrial sixth sense’ with a £1m project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which aims to develop technology enabling companies to ‘see into the future’ in order to prevent industrial disasters.
