The University of Leeds

The University of Leeds is among the top universities for research in the UK, and attracts more industrial funding than any other in the UK. A recent impact report identified research funding at the University of £588 million; this places Leeds as the 8th largest university in the UK by income. An emphasis on innovative research and investment in high-quality facilities means that 35 schools are rated internationally or nationally “excellent”. The School Chemical and Process Engineering is globally renowned for its teaching and research with an established reputation across the entire spectrum of chemical, energy, petroleum, nuclear engineering and aviation technology. The School has just over 1,000 students from over 70 countries, which makes it one of the largest integrated engineering schools in Europe and it was rated 4th in the UK in the 2016 Guardian University rankings. Research in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering takes a multi-disciplinary modern approach to Chemical Engineering, integrating world-leading analytical infrastructure and state-of-the-art physical science. The breadth of our capabilities allows us to take a true ‘atoms-to-products’ approach to process engineering and design, with impact across virtually all industrial sectors, including oil-and-gas, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, consumer products, foods and feeds, advanced materials and devices, and environmental protection.
