Chemical engineering is all about changing raw materials into useful products we use every day in a safe and cost-effective way.

Chemical engineers create and develop the processes to produce, change or transport products and materials. They create, sustain and improve industries as diverse as clean energy, water and waste water treatment, food and beverage processing, petrochemicals, primary metals, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and specialty chemicals.

Our Master of Engineering (Chemical) is suited to high-achieving engineering graduates, as well as engineers with relevant work experience, who want to learn the about the latest advances in chemical engineering. It is fully accredited by Engineers Australia.  

This intensive degree comprises a foundation year and an advanced studies year. You will:

  • explore advanced chemical engineering concepts: fluid and particle mechanics, chemical reactor design, separation process, process synthesis & design
  • pursue electives according to interests and career goals – from Bioprocess Engineering to Quantum Materials
  • build skills in project management and entrepreneurship
  • undertake a significant research project—including sustainable process design, artificial intelligence in process engineering, energy materials, environmental remediation and biopharmaceutical engineering.
You could develop pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, energy materials, cosmetics or foods. You might work in water treatment, waste management or even tissue engineering. You could conduct safety and risk assessments on process plants. Perhaps you’ll design environmentally sustainable food production or energy storage for Space.
