Master of Engineering Studies in Sustainable Resource Recovery

Enhance your employability in the competitive global market with a qualification that provides advanced technical foundations and industrial perspectives in your chosen field.

The MEngSt allows students with academic engineering backgrounds to expand their existing theoretical and practical skills.

What can you study in Sustainable Resource Recovery?

You can choose to complete a Master of Engineering Studies in Sustainable Resource Recovery, or if you'd like to pursue a shorter-term study option, you can undertake this as a specialisation as part of a Postgraduate Certificate in Engineering or Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering.

A specialisation in Sustainable Resource Recovery gives you exposure to the university departmental expertise in areas such as advanced resource recovery technologies, bioprocessing, materials processing and characterisation, and process control and optimisation — all are skills valued in industry and research. 

Additional electives also cover relevant areas, including:

  1. Process control
  2. Microbial technology in bioprocess engineering
  3. Industry 4.0 for chemical engineering
  4. Food process engineering
  5. Applications in biomaterials
