Chemical engineering research at Strathclyde spans the boundaries of science and engineering.
Our research applies advances in science and mathematics to develop solutions to challenges faced by industry and society, such as manufacturing medicines, delivering clean water and providing renewable energy. 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 cutting edge research aligns with the following University-wide strategic themes:
- Advanced manufacturing & materials
- Health & wellbeing
- Measurement science & enabling technologies
- Society & policy
We have strong links with other engineering and science departments within Strathclyde and externally. We also work with many industrial partners.
