Special Notes

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

Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of chemical engineering with science (Biotechnology). 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 Bimolecular 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.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical)/ Bachelor of Biotechnology 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

Condition 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.
