Research in the Department is organised into three research groups:
However, many of our projects involve inter-disciplinary work underpinned by the academic expertise of our staff across a number of Research Areas.
Catalysis and Reaction Engineering
Research is underway on scientific understanding of catalytic phenomena relevant to current and future industrial processes.
Separation and Purification Technology
Covering both fundamental phenomenon as well as the design and simulation of conventional and new processes.
The department conducts research in biochemical engineering, food technology, regenerative medicine and microbiology.
Nano- and Micro- Materials Engineering
Expertise in particle technology has evolved into nano- and micro- engineering of particles and materials.
Energy and Environmental Engineering
Covering a wide range of topics including the development of technology to produce clean fuels.
Addressing the emerging problems of pharmaceutical production with special emphasis on purification, formulation and administration.
Process Control and Systems Engineering
The application of control theory and engineering principles to industrial process control problems.
