Between 1992 and 1993, he was a visiting Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, USA, and visiting Professor in the Department of Petroleum Engineering, Convenant University, Ota, Ogun State in 2010 and 2011.

Between 2001 and 2008. Prof. Denloye has research successfully in large particle gas fluidization, fluidized bed combustion of Coal and carbonaceous materials, drying charasteristics of local food grians, hydrogenation of Nigerian sub-bituminous coal, dynamic modeling of distillation columns and leak dection in pipelines systems. He was the Managing Director of Unilag Consult. This provided him an extensive experience in project management, project engineering and engineering assessment. He has written many books and published journal.

Prof. Denloye is a COREN Registered Engineer, Member, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Institution of Chemical Engineers, UK, Fellow, Nigerian Society of Chemical Engineers and Nigerian Society of Engineers.
