Master of Engineering (Chemical with Business)

    • CRICOS Code: 069275C


    The Master of Engineering (Chemical with Business) is a 2–3 year degree (full-time) degree depending on your prior study.

    Course structure

    First year

    In your first year (or equivalent) you’ll complete foundation engineering subjects – tailored to students from a non-engineering background. If you’ve completed the Chemical Systems major in your bachelor’s degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year.

    Second and third year

    In the second and third year (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a chemical engineering student you’ll focus on the design and implementation of industrial-scale processes for converting raw waste materials into useful products.

    You’ll be able to apply your knowledge to diverse areas such as fuel, plastics, food additives, fertilisers, paper and pharmaceuticals gaining expertise in the computing and simulation of chemical processes.

    You’ll undertake an industry, design or research project and gain the skills and knowledge to practice as a professional engineer.

    Business study

    Develop key business skills though subjects that have been tailored to the engineering profession and co-developed with Melbourne Business School. Take five subjects in areas including engineering management, contracts and procurement, economic analysis, strategy execution and marketing.

    Industry, design and research subjects

    Industry Project

    Work on a dedicated chemical engineering investigative project with an industry partner in an Industry Project. Get industry contacts and insights into the engineering process. You’ll apply critical analytical skills, experimental research, modelling and simulation to generate real-world results.

    Chemical Engineering Design Project

    From developing a feasibility study to creating a design report, you will build your advanced engineering design skills through our Chemical Engineering Design Project.

    Chemical Engineering Research Subject

    Conduct research alongside our expert chemical engineering researchers in our Chemical Engineering Research Subject. Work on an industry partnered project, or pursue your own exploratory research. You’ll have the opportunity to present the findings to the public at our annual engineering showcase, the Endeavour Engineering and IT Exhibition.
