Overview

This program combines knowledge of basic chemistry, mathematics and biology with engineering principles and real world economic considerations. The first two years of the academic program are spent developing an understanding of the foundation courses of pharmaceutical engineering, which are increasingly put into practise in the third and fourth years via major design, research and experimental projects.

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.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical and Pharmaceutical) is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 years.
