The University of Manchester
School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Sciences

 

History
Chemical Engineering has a long tradition of innovation and excellence at Manchester - we are, after all, the birthplace of the chemical engineering discipline! George E Davis first delivered a series of lectures on the subject in 1887 and published the first ever book on chemical engineering.

The School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science was formed in 2004, integrating the former UMIST departments of Chemical Engineering, Process Integration and Instrumentation and Analytical Science.

Our Students
We are a very friendly School, and a large one too, with 300 undergraduate students, 100 MSc students, 180 postgraduate research students and 55 academic staff. This makes for a lively and stimulating environment for our postgraduate students to learn in and to engage in world-class research.

Our School is multicultural - around half our Postgraduate students are from countries outside the European Union. This means our students can make friends and learn from students with diverse backgrounds as well as meeting students from their home country.

Postgraduate Study Opportunities
The School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science is a world leader in industrially relevant research and teaching in chemical engineering and related subjects, offering a wide variety of postgraduate taught and research programmes.

Our leading edge-research is focused on advancing the science and engineering of complex systems and addresses different scales and levels of complexity, the research in the School is carried out within four main research themes: 

• Multi-scale and Multiphase Systems
• Self-sustaining Biological Systems
• Sustainable Industrial Systems
• Measurement Science and Instrumentation Systems

Our Masters portfolio includes traditional full-time Programmes studied in attendance at the University as well as flexible modular Programmes, distance learning and short courses for professional development. All Masters Programmes are enhanced by having teaching materials available in e-learning format - providing students with the opportunity to study at their own pace.

All our students can expect high quality teaching. We excelled in the Guardian University Guide and the Times Good University Guide, reflecting our high standards. We achieved the excellent result of 22 out of 24 in the teaching quality assessment undertaken by the Higher Education Funding Councils in the UK. This is one of the highest scores awarded for chemical engineering.

Research Excellence
A University’s reputation in the academic and commercial world is often based on the quality of its research. We undertake leading edge, multi-disciplinary and innovative research and our research base continues to grow year on year. We achieved excellent results in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, an independent measure of quality carried out by the Higher Education Funding Councils in the UK. This excellent score means that our research quality is of international excellence in several areas. Research grants and contracts totalling more than £20 million were awarded to the School over the past two years.

Careers
Your choice of university will have an impact on your future career prospects. Our graduates are the most sought after by leading employers in industry and business. The National Signposts for Employability 2000 found that employers rated our students first for engineering - in other words they prefer to recruit our engineering graduates than any others.

The University of Manchester students were targeted by more top recruiters for 2007 graduate vacancies than any other UK students, according to High Fliers Research Limited’s survey, ’The Graduate Market in 2007’. The survey questioned employers listed in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers 2006, which includes a range of both private and public sector employers.
