The research in the Chemical and process engineering programme at the University of Strathclyde uses advances in science and mathematics to develop solutions to challenges faced by industry and society. These challenges include manufacturing medicines, delivering clean water and providing renewable energy.


Research opportunities

We research areas from the controlled assembly of nanostructured materials to the design of advanced reactors, and from combating global warming with novel energy storage and gas separation technology to understanding protein aggregation in degenerative diseases.

The Chemical and process engineering programme has strong links with other engineering and science departments both within University of Strathclyde and externally. We also work with many industrial partners.
