Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


We are contributing to the CAM Alumni Festival by opening our doors to alumni from all disciplines to meet our researchers and find out more about the environmental and societal impact of our work.

We invite you to see how our research will shape a more sustainable future for our planet. We combine leading biotechnology research with chemical engineering skills to drive innovation in areas such as healthcare, energy, environment and food production. Hear from current researchers, enjoy a guided tour of our building and join our staff and students for a drinks reception.

You will be given an opportunity to learn more about our research of the highest quality with economic and societal impact, and with sustainability at the core of our activities. From chemical looping combustion for carbon capture, sustainable food production, and developing low-cost healthcare diagnostics, to developing a prosthetic heart valve or a home blood test kit to diagnose mental ill health: our research has the potential to impact many aspects of day-to-day life.

A drinks reception in our Atrium will round off the day giving you a chance to talk to our young researches and academics about their projects of impact and hear more about how they plan to tackle the biggest global challenges.
