Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


The Lent term for Cambridge University will start on 15 January 2008 and lectures will start on Thursday 18 January 2008.

The undergraduates are returning from their Christmas breaks and new postgraduate students and post doctoral researchers are joining the department.

Teaching at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Cambridge started in 1948, so 2008 will be our 60th Anniversary.

We look forward to a successful and productive year and wish everyone a Happy New Year!
