Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of chemical engineering with science. The chemical engineering program will provide students with a background in the physical sciences, chemical engineering core disciplines, integrated design skills and research training. Students choose a science specialisation in Energy and Environment, Process and Product Engineering, or Food, Wine and Biomolecular Engineering. Through the science program, students learn a number of transferable skills including analytical methods, laboratory and field techniques, information technology skills, teamwork, initiative and the ability to communicate and cooperate with people from a range of backgrounds and expertise.

Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia and the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) (UK).

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) with Bachelor of Science is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.

Academic Program Rules for Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) / Bachelor of Science

There shall be a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) / Bachelor of Science.
