Our research contributes to new advances in Chemical Engineering
and to better
understanding of existing processes such as pulp dewatering, "on-off"
and metallocene catalysts for making polymers. Our faculty and graduate
students are involved in a wide variety of research areas because chemical
engineering is an incredibly broad discipline.
You will find that research interests
span a diverse area. The research summaries
of the individual faculty members will point out the many interactions,
breadth and depth
of the research activity within the department.
There are also five University recognised research
centres within the department, which
are world renowned as centres of excellence in polymer design and production,
pulp and paper,
and process control.
