In this major you’ll build on a foundation of fundamental science, then integrate and apply this knowledge to chemical processing systems.

You’ll also hone your analytical and problem-solving skills through computer modelling of chemical systems. And you’ll learn how to conduct laboratory experiments to solve chemical systems problems.

Your major structure

You’ll complete this major as part of a Bachelor of Science degree. You can study engineering subjects from your first year with us, and you’ll have plenty of flexibility to explore other interests too.

In your first and second years you’ll complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major, including mathematics, chemistry and foundational engineering subjects.

In your third year, you will complete 50 points (four subjects) of deep and specialised study in chemical systems.

Throughout your degree you will also take science elective subjects and breadth (non-science) subjects, in addition to your major subjects and prerequisites.
