Welcome from the Head of Department

Welcome to the website of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB), on behalf of the Head of Department, Professor Lisa Hall.

Our aim is to produce the academic, industrial and entrepreneurial leaders of tomorrow, together with the industrial processes and bioscientific advances they will employ. Our strategy is to work at the interfaces between engineering, chemistry, biology and physics. We create a unique multidisciplinary research environment within the University of Cambridge, in which collaborations with academic and industrial organisations flourish.  Our research programmes encompass sustainable reaction engineering, chemical product and process design, healthcare, measurement, and materials science. The fusion of leading biotechnology research with chemical engineering skills, within an ethos of commercial awareness, supports our continuing development and discovery at the science-engineering interface.

CEB conducts internationally-leading research and training and we are recognised around the world, as a browse through our news archive will confirm. For example, in 2016 "Among the best in the world" the QS World University Rankings by Subject placed the University of Cambridge Chemical Engineering overall fourth in the world, amongst 200 Universities, and top outside North America.

The lifeblood of CEB is its people and we strongly welcome the very best staff, students and researchers from around the world to become part of its mission. We are committed to promoting equality and diversity.  Currently, we recognise that there is a great deal of uncertainty around the referendum result calling for the UK to leave the European Union. However, this will not affect our inclusive approach and proactive international outlook to make CEB an attractive place for the very best global talent.

We encourage exceptional and highly motivated graduates from all corners of the world to consider our range of engaging and stimulating study opportunities, and graduate student programmes. Our innovative research, underpinned by a dynamic enterprise culture, spans the wide range of disciplines embodied by modern chemical engineering and biotechnology. Our commitment is to apply research for the benefit of society. We would like you to be part of our success in achieving this.
