The Department of Chemical Engineering was formally set up in 1988, as a result of the University Reform Act, by the unification of different groups with a long history in the same field. It currently comprises 117 lecturers and researchers, 80 doctoral students and 20 administrative and service staff.
The research activity of the department follows different lines of research and the department is thus involved in 15 reseach groups.

It teaches a total of 13 undergraduate and graduate courses in 7 schools in the following locations: Barcelona, Terrassa and Vilanova i la Geltrú.

In the area of postgraduate training, the department organizes two 2 doctoral programmes that have received the Quality Award from the Ministry of Education and Science and takes part in two further interdepartmental doctoral programmes.

Our department has been coordinating three University Master's Degrees since the 2007-2008 academic year, one of which is an interuniversity programme, and takes part in four other University Master’s Degrees.

The department is also present a course of the Barcelona School of Industry Consortium (CEIB) and its affiliated centre, the College of Industrial Engineering of Igualada (EUETII).
