Course overview

The MPhil and PhD programmes in Chemical Engineering attract students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds such as statistics, maths, electrical engineering, chemistry and physics. You may work on multidisciplinary research projects in collaboration with colleagues across the University or from external organisations.

Research Areas

MPhil and PhD supervision is normally available in the following areas:

Advanced materials:
Every article, instrument, machine or device we use depends for its success upon materials, design and effective production. We work on a wide range of materials topics including: new material development; optimising of materials processing; testing and evaluation at component scale and at high spatial resolution; modelling; failure analysis.

Much of our work relates to materials and processes for renewable energy generation, energy efficiency, carbon capture and storage. We also use biological and bio-inspired processes to develop new functional materials.

Electrochemical engineering science:
Electrochemical Engineering Science (EES) arose out of the pioneering fuel cell research at Newcastle in the 1960s. We are continuing this research on new catalyst and membrane materials, optimising electrode structures and developing meaningful fuel cell test procedures.

We are investigating electrochemical methods for surface structuring, probing and testing at the micron and nanoscale. More recently, we have been using electrochemical analysis to understand cellular and microbial catalysis and processes.

Process intensification:
Process intensification is the philosophy that processes can often be made smaller, more efficient and safer using new process technologies and techniques, resulting in order of magnitude reductions in the size of process equipment. This leads to substantial capital cost savings and often a reduction in running costs.

Process modelling and optimisation:
Our goal is to attain better insight into process behaviour to achieve improved process and product design and operational performance. The complexity of the challenge arises from the presence of physiochemical interactions, multiple unit operations and multi-scale effects.

Underpinning our activity is the need for improved process and product characterisation through the development and application of process analytical techniques, hybrid statistical and empirical modeling and high throughput technologies for chemical synthesis.
