We recognise that studying on campus is not practical, or possible, for everyone. Therefore, our department has a distance learning programme. These courses are hosted online, with tutors providing support through forums and live webinars.
The Department of Chemical and Process Engineering has continually fostered links with industry, not only to develop our research and knowledge exchange activities, but also to support our excellent teaching experience by providing first-hand insight into the challenges of an engineering role and giving clear context to the concepts covered within the course.
We're looking at the development, well-being, and progress of society is closely linked to the availability of energy.
We design, develop, and manufacture new nanostructured materials that can be used to address problems of global significance.
We're active innovators in pharmaceutical processing, monitoring technology, and process development.
Optimisation of chemical processes often depends on the application of advanced measurement capabilities, leading to improved understanding and control.
Engineering and technology should benefit society and ensure its well-being.
Our KT partnership with Alconbury Weston Ltd enabled us to develop and optimise an innovative continuous filtration, washing and drying system for pharmaceutical process development and small scale manufacturing.
This project is funded by the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre and the EPSRC Impact Accelerator Account. The work focuses on the conjugation of nanoparticles to antibodies to produce efficient, low-cost devices for the detection of pathogens, working with a local biotech SME.
This 4-day course provides training on adsorption fundamentals, from molecular mechanisms up to industrial processes. It is aimed at industry professionals, 1st-year PhD candidates, or anyone who wishes to improve their knowledge of adsorption-based separation and storage processes.
