Chemical Engineering at Swansea

From authoring definitive text books on chemical engineering to finding solutions to the world's water shortages, Swansea University has a proud tradition delivering pioneering innovative process engineering solutions.   

Our courses build on established chemical engineering areas with application to energy, health, food, water and the environment.

One of our major strengths is our close and extensive involvement with local, national and international engineering companies, which includes:

- Acordis - Astra Zeneca - Avecia - BP Chemicals - Bulmers - Dow Corning - GlaxoSmithKline - Nestle - Murco - Phillips 66 - Unilever - Valero

Recent Year in Industry student placements have included the following companies:

- Dow Corning - Valero - Huntsman - Imerys - Murco - Solutia

Papers published by our academic staff are well-respected. Professor Nidal Hilal, and his colleagues, recently received an award for one of the Top Cited Papers for 2011 and 2012 for their paper on "Modelling and optimization of coagulation of highly concentrated industrial grade leather dye by response surface methodology", which is featured in the Chemical Engineering Journal.
