Our research in catalysis and porous materials focuses on heterogeneous catalysis, membranes and separations, porous media, plasma processing and process analysis.
We combine experimental and modelling approaches to provide predictive methods in order to optimise and develop overall processes for large-scale implementation with our industrial partners. Advanced analytical techniques are routinely applied to these problems to examine surface species, structural changes and electronic effects as a function of the process conditions.

The Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science is a world leader in industrially relevant research and teaching in chemical engineering and related subjects.
We undertake leading-edge multidisciplinary, creative and relevant research on a wide range of topics. Focused on advancing the science and engineering of complex systems and addressing different scales and levels of complexity, the research in the Department is carried out within four main research themes:
Our breadth of research expertise and highly advanced facilities make us an ideal choice whatever your doctoral interest.
Facilitating research across chemical engineering and bioscience, chemistry, mathematics and analytical and measurement science, means we can offer you the benefits of a large multidisciplinary institution at the same time as ensuring you are given personal support for your professional development.

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2021, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK students (per annum): Band A £4,500; Band B £7,250; Band C £9,250; Band D £16,000
International, including EU, students (per annum): Band A £24,000; Band B £25,000; Band C £26,000; Band D £29,000
UK students (per annum): Band A £2,250; Band B £3,625; Band C £4,625; Band D £8,000
International, including EU, students (per annum): Band A £12,000; Band B £12,500; Band C £13,000; Band D £14,500
Further information for EU students can be found on our dedicated EU page.
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
