The University of Warwick Profile

The University of Warwick is globally connected, forward-looking and entrepreneurial. We create new ways of thinking and achieving: making us stand out from our competitors and the more ‘traditional universities’ and creating an inspiring place to study and undertake research.
Warwick is one of the UK’s great success stories. In less than fifty years since being founded we’ve become one of the UK’s best universities, consistently at the top of UK league tables and we’re rapidly climbing the international league tables of world class universities.
We’re a university that champions independent thinking and as well as being founded, first and foremost, on academic excellence, a key driver of the Warwick success story so far is our entrepreneurial spirit - a key strength is our relevance to society and our close links with business and industry. Companies tap into Warwick knowledge to develop their own strengths and ensure they remain at the cutting edge within their industries. And that cutting edge insight is developed out of truly world class research: Warwick ranks 7th overall in the UK according to the latest Research Assessment Exercise.
Warwick’s School of Engineering is one of the leading unified engineering schools in the UK. Our integrated approach to engineering education brings together the key branches of engineering and draws upon research strengths in core engineering disciplines. Key facts about the School of Engineering are among others: Engineering at Warwick was ranked 4th in the general engineering league tables in 2012, Of the unified engineering departments, we were the 3rd highest rated in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise for General Engineering, The School has 90 academic teaching and research staff, plus 55 support staff, Of our graduates in employment 6 months after graduation, 89% were in graduate level jobs using skills gained during their degree course and The average starting salary in 2011 for Warwick Engineering graduates was £25,800, which is significantly higher than the sector norm.


Contribution to BIOGO

University of Warwick (UoW) is involved in various aspects of Biogo. First, UoW is leader of WP1 “Autothermal conversion of bio gas and biooils to synthesis gas” guiding and performing development of advanced technology converting primary bio-resources to synthesis gas, and, adjusting the composition and purifying the latter for sensitive downstream process steps. Second, UoW is partner in WP2 “Conversion of Syngas to Methanol and DME” and complementary WP4 “Conversion of Syngas to higher linear alcohols”. Finally, UoW participates in mechanistic studies in WP3 “Conversion of Methanol to Hydrocarbons” exploring elementary aspects of the conversion of Methanol and DME to saturated hydrocarbons with transient kinetic techniques.
