Short research or consultancy programmes

We accept commisions to undertake an agreed paper study or programme of research, spanning typically a few days or weeks. For example, this may involve evaluating materials using a particular technique or instrument, or to examine the potential benefits of a more extensive research programme.

Research projects/programmes

Industrial sponsors of research programmes are invited to fund studies at post graduate or post doctoral level.

Pt II Chemical Engineering research projects

You could help to devise and sponsor a Pt II Chemical Engineering research project, which is undertaken by fourth-year Chemical Engineering students, under the supervision of a member of our staff.

Teaching Consortium

A number of key chemical engineering companies support the undergraduate chemical engineering students by making a financial commitment to support design, project and laboratory teaching, and the development of new teaching methods. Contact Dr Bart Hallmark.
