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.

MPhil in Bioscience Enterprise and
MPhil in Advanced Chemical Engineering

We welcome the involvement of companies in our Master's education programmes. Companies and their executives frequently contribute to course design, or lecture to and mentor students.
Please see our MBE and ACE MPhil pages to find out more. Contact Dr Sarah Rough (MPhil ACE) or our MBE team for more information.

PhD research programme

A PhD research project is conducted by a student with a good honours degree, working full-time for three years, under the supervision of a member of staff who will be an expert in the field. More information.
