Postgraduate Research Programmes

Candidates pursuing MPhil and PhD degrees in our School come from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, eg statisticians, mathematicians, electrical engineers, chemists, physicists and of course, chemical and process engineers.

Many of them work on projects in collaboration with other schools in the University, external institutions and with numerous companies, many of which are household names.

These collaborative projects reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the research work carried out in our School. They cover a wide range of activities such as food processing; water treatment systems; process intensification technology; solvent extraction; polymer reactors; process modelling and control; design of electrochemical reactors and fuel cells; clean technology.
