Master of Engineering (Chemical)

    • CRICOS Code: 069275C


    The Master of Engineering (Chemical) is a 2–3 year full-time degree (part-time available) 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 degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in the second year.

    Second and third year

    In your 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 also apply your knowledge in diverse sectors from fuel to 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.

    Industry, design and research subjects

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

    Work on a real-world innovation challenge with an industry mentor through our Creating Innovative Engineering subject. You could also work on a dedicated chemical engineering investigative project within an industry partner in our subject Industry Project.

    Chemical Engineering Research subject

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

    Chemical Engineering Design Project

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