Department of Chemical Engineering

Leading the way with innovative chemical engineering research

The Department of Chemical Engineering focuses on the latest developments within the industry, such as oil and gas processing techniques, combustion science and technologies, and mineral and chemical processing.

We work with our students to connect them to industry partners and prepare them for careers in chemical engineering, with the opportunity to work in sectors such as oil and gas, mineral processing, waste management and renewable and sustainable energy.

When we make new scientific discoveries – whether through innovative high-pressure tests, new measurement methods in the lab, or exploring real-life situations – we learn how to better support and protect the next generation of offshore production systems.
