New building for the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


The new building for the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, which is providing the hub for the CDT in Sensor Technologies and


Applications, is being built on the University's West Cambridge Site. This new building will bring the Sensor CDT  in close proximity to the activities of most of the other CDTs awarded to the University of Cambridge. Situated near the Cavendish Physics Laboratory, the Computer Laboratory, the Nanoscience Centre, Electrical Engineering and the Institute for Manufacturing the building will feature state of the art laboratory and teaching space and dedicated facilities to host the Sensor CDT cohort.  We are delighted to see the progress with the building which is on plan to be ready for the 2nd cohort of students to enter the CDT in 2015.  Have a look at the  video of the top out ceremony.
