Ranking and student feedback
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 in the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials is cross-disciplinary and our strategy is to ensure that our research groups grow and provide a balanced portfolio of activities for the future. This is achieved in part through MPhil and PhD supervision. Advanced materials Electrochemical engineering science Process intensification Process modelling and optimisation Working with industry Facilities We have a range of laboratories, testing equipment and software for use by researchers: •nanoindentation facilities for high spatial resolution mechanical testing •sensitive mechanical test frames for biomaterial assessment •test frames for environmentally assisted cracking •range of tribological testers (scratch, pin-on-disc, abrasion, galling, twin disc rolling-sliding and components scale tests) •biological AFM •X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS) •pilot scale fuel cell tests •micro and nano fabrication and metrology (through nano-labs) •pilot scale electrodeposition facilities •electrochemistry in controlled environment (glove box) •Process Intensification Laboratory •Gas-solid Reactions Laboratory •pilot/larger scale equipment •Bioprocessing Laboratory – Process Analytical Equipment •ABB X-PAT Software for on-line real time monitoring and control •standard bioprocessing equipment.

About this university
Newcastle attracts students from over 120 countries worldwide and there is plenty of help and advice on hand to assist them in adapting to life in the UK. The university has a system where every student has a personal tutor to assist them in both academic and non-academic matters and there is also a Student Wellbeing Service for confidence advice and help. There is a Visa and Immigration Team on hand to deal with legal matters relating to these areas and a Student Advice Centre within the Studentâ€™s Union for information on matters such as housing and finances. Finally, towards the end of studying, there is a Careers Service to help students find work or further their education as required. The heart of student life outside the classroom in the university is the Newcastle University Students Union. Unlike many students unions, NUSU owns the building that it operates from, following an anonymous gift in 1924 that allowed them to build a neo-Jacobean style building. It is run by six sabbatical officers and employs some 300 people in roles such as bar staff and entertainment organisers. In the media, there is a student run newspaper, established in 1948, called The Courier as well as radio station. The university is one of the leading in the UK for its sports programs and there are more than 50 sports clubs to become involved with.
