|Summary||The research project in chemical engineering is undertaken by MEng students in their final year. It consists of a piece of original research into some technique or phenomenon in chemical engineering or a related discipline. Research projects range from the purely experimental to entirely computational or theoretical, with many having a mixture of these elements. Each project has three elements:
1. A comprehensive literature review.
2. A substantial project involving the student in independant analysis of a problem, and giving them a degree of responsibility for defining the scope and conduct of the project.
3. Presentation of the work in form of a poster presentation and a report.
