Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.
With the PhD Programme in Energy and Nuclear Science and Technology, the Department of Energy offers to graduate students a research opportunity in the following areas: production, conversion and transmission of energy, rational use of energy and environmental control, thermal science, nuclear systems and nuclear fuel cycle, radioprotection and application of ionizing radiations, methods for safety and reliability analysis and development of innovative materials for energy applications.
The main aim of the doctorate is to produce doctors for high quality and advanced research.
Description of the center and the fields of research : The CEP has developed skills in many fields that are useful for studying the transformation of matter and energy. Attention focuses on complex energy systems, particularly in transient conditions, and on controlling their environmental impacts. CEP research activities are organized according three strategic areas : 1 : Energy efficiency (building, industry, transport) 2 : Decarbonization of processes and fuels (CO2 capture, alternative fuels) 3 : Renewable energies (resource evaluation and prediction, integration optimization, environmental impacts) These areas gather all CEP research activities in a consistent set of expertise orientated towards the major preoccupations of different economic sectors and the society as a whole in terms of sustainable development. Cross-cutting activities on the input of nanomaterials and environmental impacts evaluation are also considered. Contact : M. Christophe COQUELET christophe.coquelet@mines-paristec
The field of offshore technology at UiS deals with principles, theories and methods of planning, developing, service and phasing out of technological systems and equipment with applications especially designed for offshore installations.
iPRD offers a four year integrated MSc and PhD degree programme in Chemical Process Research and Development, which spans the chemistry-chemical engineering interface.
We are seeking to fill one PhD position in the optofluidics group at DTU-Nanotech, Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The basic aim is to develop a micro- and nanofludidic platform for single cell genomics. In this project we will focus on micro and nanofluidic devices that can be fabricated by injection moulding and can perform single cell and single molecule DNA analysis.
Graduate in program Process Control is a specialist in the control and management of unit processes, chemical and food technology and in control of complex technological units in the process industries. He is a specialist in the field of mass and heat transfer processes, chemical reactions, and control of biotechnological processes. Graduate of the third grade can design control, automation, and information systems on the basis of analysis of processes and technologies in the process industries.
We undertake leading-edge multidisciplinary, creative and relevant research on a wide range of topics. Focused on advancing the science and engineering of complex systems and addressing different scales and levels of complexity, the research in the School is carried out within four main research themes
The SINCHEM doctoral programme is a three-year world-class Joint Doctoral Programme offered by the SINCHEM consortium of 25 European partner institutions. All SINCHEM doctoral candidates will carry out research at three partners of the network (the second mandatory period preferably in one of the associated company members).
We welcome postgraduate students and visiting research fellows to undertake research in our areas of interest (see below). Research students are registered for University of London degrees (MPhil/PhD) and work under the supervision of members of academic staff.
The aim of this project is the development of a novel miniaturized photothermal spectrometer. In the initial part of the project micromechanical sensors with exceptionally high temperature sensitivity will be designed and developed. These temperature sensors will subsequently be used as active sensing elements of a photothermal spectrometer.
The PhD Programme in Chemical Engineering aims at increasing the knowledge of specific topics in the scientific and technological areas of Chemical Engineering and the exploitation of related areas in an interdisciplinary perspective.
