Chemical engineering processes support the design and manufacture of a wide range of materials that make durable and safe homes, consumer goods and other lifestyle products.
Sustainability is key to progress in this area. Industrial design should evolve sustainably so that efficiency is improved and ecological footprints reduced.
Research in the School is focused on the application of Life cycle analysis (LCA) in order to map energy, water and resource use. Further research relates to the process development of healthcare products and the processing of structured liquids in general as well as supporting research for the pharmaceutical industry.
