Special Notes

This program will no longer be open for enrolments to commencing students from Semester 2, 2022.

These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies).

Overview

Through this combined degree program students can combine the concepts of chemical engineering with arts. The chemical engineering program will provide students with a background in the physical sciences, chemical engineering core disciplines, integrated design skills and research training. All engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their disciplines, majors and/or a choice of thematic minors. Students will also have the opportunity to choose from a range of engineering thematic majors and minors. In the arts program, students are able to specialise in areas of their choice by taking a ‘major’ (from one of 25 majors) and potentially a ‘minor’ (from a range of areas).

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Chemical  and Bachelor of Arts is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.

This program is accredited by Engineers Australia, and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia and the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) (UK)

Conditions

Conditions of Enrolment
Interruption of program: Students must apply for permission from the Executive Dean or delegate before taking a Leave of Absence. Any extension of the leave without approval will result in the loss of place in the program but an application may be made to be re-admitted to the program subject to the admission procedures in place at the time.
