School of Chemical Engineering at UNSW has a strong focus on the development of different types of sensors for medical applications, health and safety, environmental monitoring and industrials purposes. Researchers at the School have the capability to design and develop such sensors and have access to the state-of-the art equipment for their tests in a variety of set-ups.
School of Chemical Engineering is also very strong in research on advanced functional materials. These are focused on the development of both organic and inorganic based materials with industrial and medical applications. Some of the foci include, but not limited, to atomically thin materials, liquid metals, zeolite frameworks, 3D printing, MOF and functional nano-materials.
