This is an EPSRC-sponsored doctoral research and training programme. You combine a research project based in industry with a Masters-level training and development programme.
The EngD Studentships at the School of Chemical Engineering programme has a 100% employment record and has been recognised by the IChemE as counting towards Chartered Engineer status. Chemical Engineering is dynamic and evolving. It provides many solutions to problems facing industries in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, oil, energy and food and drink sectors. It is vital to many issues affecting our quality of life; such as better and more economical processes to reduce the environmental burden, and more delicious and longer lasting food due to the right combination of chemistry, ingredients and processing.
Careers: The programme has a 100 % employment record. A third of the Research Engineers have been recruited by their sponsors, whilst several Research Engineers now work for companies that did not sponsor their project but support the scheme. But more importantly over 70% are still employed in the field of Formulation Engineering.
