UNDERGRADUATE

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Chemical)

Chemical engineers come up with the best ways to convert raw matter—like minerals or oils—into products we can use. They design renewable energy solutions, new and improved medicines, chemical plants, cosmetics and food factories.

Degree Details

Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Chemical) is interactive from the very first year. You’ll work with award-winning and industry-connected researchers and teachers as you:

  • use knowledge and skills from engineering, chemistry, maths and biology to produce chemicals, fuel, drugs, and food
  • learn how results in the lab scale up for commercial production
  • undertake projects with external groups such as Engineers Without Borders
  • benefit from tours, projects, and placements with companies like PepsiCo, Smiths Crisps, Jurlique, and BHP
  • complete an eight-week practical experience.

Career Readiness

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) provides graduates with the skills and knowledge for careers with national and global companies across a variety of dynamic settings.
Our graduates have been employed across a range of industries including:

  • winemaking
  • food production (e.g. beer, milk, cheese)
  • petrochemicals (e.g. oil refining and natural gas processing)
  • industrial bulk chemicals industries (e.g. production of chlorine and explosives)
  • plastic and rubber products industries (e.g. production of polymers from raw materials such as oil or wood, production of items from polymers ranging from cling film to rainwater tanks to high performance products for building, automotive and aerospace applications)
  • mining and minerals processing (e.g. concentrating minerals, production of iron ore, steel, aluminium, uranium and similar from minerals)
  • environmental engineering (e.g. air pollution control, water and wastewater treatment, waste disposal, resource management)
  • semiconductors and microelectronics (e.g. production of computer memory and central processing units, flatscreen televisions)
  • nanotechnology (e.g. production of nanoporous materials for catalysis, separations and energy storage)
  • management consulting (e.g. engineering business and financial management).

Many chemical engineers go on to manage companies, or even start their own businesses.

The first two years of the academic program are spent developing an understanding of the foundation subjects of chemical engineering, which are increasingly put into practice in the third and fourth years via major design, research and experimental projects.

A major is a great way to specialise and pursue topics of interest without narrowing future career options. All graduates of this degree—irrespective of their major—qualify as chemical engineers, and can pursue a career in any specialist field within the profession. Majors are available across the following areas: Food and Beverage Engineering, Minerals Processing, Pharmaceutical Engineering and Renewable Energy.

Students are required to complete eight weeks of approved practical experience.

Majors

A major is a great way to specialise and pursue topics of interest without narrowing future career options. All graduates of this degree—irrespective of their major—qualify as chemical engineers, and can pursue a career in any specialist field within the profession.
Majors are available across the following areas:
Food and Beverage Engineering
This major explores the engineering processes behind production, and the latest developments and needs, in the food and beverage industry sector. Graduates can work in a range of roles across the food, brewing and winemaking industries.
Minerals Processing

The Minerals Processing major explores the science and technology of extracting minerals from raw mined material, and converting them into products such as iron, steel, aluminium, copper, gold and uranium. Graduates can work in a range of roles across the resources industry.
Pharmaceutical Engineering
Pharmaceutical engineering involves the design, development, and operation of process systems to produce pharmaceuticals.
Pharmaceutical engineers contribute to the production of pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, vaccines, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, cosmeceuticals and related products.
Renewable Energy
This major is for students interested in the production of renewable energy products. Graduates acquire the knowledge and skills required to improve and design groundbreaking processes that are technically, economically, and environmentally sound.
