Become a chemical and bioprocess engineer who designs, optimizes, and operates industrial processes.
Chemical and bioprocess engineering is the industrial processing of raw materials to higher value products through combinations of physical, chemical, or biochemical action.
These processes can be very diverse. Chemical and bioprocess engineers design, optimize and operate these processes.
The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering) will equip you with core chemical engineering skills for more traditional industries (oil, and gas).
But there is also a focus on innovative approaches such as nanotechnologies, biocatalysts, and clean processing techniques.
The first year of study builds a solid platform of science principles with an engineering context, in common with the other engineering majors.
In the second year, you will build further on these fundamental sciences.
You’ll also learn about their application to chemical and bioprocess engineering systems.
In your third year, your study will extend from the study of engineering and chemical principles to processing applications. These may include bio-separations and reactor technologies.
In the fourth year, you will design a major innovative production process to integrate the various engineering and science skills you’ve learned in earlier years of study.
You can focus on particular processing industry sectors such as biotechnology, chemical processing, environmental engineering, and renewable energy.
