Our mission is to carry out research of the highest academic quality, which is novel, challenging and relevant to users.

Our strengths are in design and characterisation of microstructured products, and in heat and mass transfer, fluid flow, particle technology and materials engineering across chemical, biological and physical systems. We collaborate with world-class industry, and with leading edge engineering and science departments nationally and internationally.

This is reflected in our RAE rating which shows us to be in the top five Chemical Engineering Schools in the country; 20% of our outputs were in the highest 4* category (highest-international, world-leading) and 45% in the 3* (high international) ranking.

Research is structured into four industry themes:
