Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

It is an exciting time to develop a career in chemical engineering and in biotechnology and to apply your knowledge and skills to address the global problems faced by society today. Postgraduate study may lead to careers in areas as diverse as the control of carbon dioxide emissions, to the development of new devices which seek to mimic biological organs, and, as with many of the alumni, to leadership roles in academia and business across the globe.

Department of Computer Science and Technology

The Department of Computer Science and Technology was founded in 1937 (as the Mathematical Laboratory, and later the Computer Laboratory) for work on mechanical calculators and analogue computers. The department encompasses Computer Science, along with many aspects of Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Our culture is open and collaborative, supporting revolutionary fundamental computer science research, strong cross-cutting collaborations internally and externally, and ideas which transform computing outside the University.
