The School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Sciences (CEAS) University of Manchester was formed by the merger in 2004 of the former UMIST departments of Chemical Engineering, and DIAS - the Department of Instrumentation and Analytical Sciences - and the Centre for Process Integration. The school inherits a longstanding association of Chemical Engineering and UMIST, indeed the discipline was founded by a series of lectures given there by George E. Davis in 1888.

The professors of technological chemistry in the Faculty of Technology, Victoria University of Manchester, were W. J. Pope (1905-08), E. Knecht (1909-18), F. L. Pyman (1918-27) and J. Kenner (1928-50).[1]
