Chemical engineering research at Strathclyde spans the boundaries of science and engineering.
We research areas from controlled assembly of nanostructured materials to design of advanced reactors, and from combating global warming with novel energy storage and gas separation technology to understanding protein aggregation in degenerative diseases.
Our research is divided into three themes:
- nanostructured materials
- process development and monitoring
- multi-scale simulation and theory
Two-thirds of our research output was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
We have strong links with other engineering and science departments within Strathclyde and externally. We also work with many industrial partners.
