Chemical engineers invent, design and implement processes through which raw materials are converted into valuable products, such as petrol, plastics, food additives, fertilisers, paper and pharmaceuticals.
The program promotes development of practical, laboratory-based skills, combined with expertise in computing and simulation. You will develop expertise under the guidance of staff known internationally for their research in areas such as nanotechnology, carbon capture and storage, minerals and materials, natural gas processing and solvent extraction.
Our degrees provide a range of opportunities for students to actively engage with industry, through a variety of collaborative programs such as projects and internships. This allows students to gain both theoretical and real-world knowledge within their field of engineering.
The Master of Engineering (Chemical) will provide you with a formal qualification in chemical engineering at the Masters level.
Career opportunities in the field are extensive and exist in petrochemical, minerals processing, mining, chemical manufacturing, environmental consulting, natural gas, explosives and fertiliser production.
Our graduates are employed in a diverse range of industries, for companies including: ExxonMobil, BP, PETRONAS, Schlumberger, Nyrstar, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Anglo Coal, Worley Parsons, Uhde Shedden, Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB), Production Services Network (PSN), GHD, URS Corporation, ENSR Australia, Mars and Unilever.
The Master of Engineering is professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.
