    Overview

    Help meet the world’s growing need for food, energy and clean water, with chemical and biochemical engineering.

    Chemical engineers invent, design and implement processes that convert raw materials into valuable products used every day.

    Join the ranks of chemical engineers working on important projects such as clean energy biofuels, targeted drug delivery for cancer treatment and new methods of air pollution control.

    For professional accreditation as a chemical, biochemical or materials engineer, follow this major with a Master of Engineering (Chemical), (Chemical with Business), (Biochemical) or (Materials).

    If you continue this major through to the Master of Engineering, you will be eligible for professional accreditation as an engineer as our Engineering degrees are 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.

    The Master of Engineering (Chemical) is also accredited by IChemE (Institution of Chemical Engineers). This accreditation has worldwide recognition.
