Special Notes

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

Overview

This 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 and majors. The first two years of the program are spent developing an understanding of the foundation courses of chemical engineering, which are increasingly put into practice in the third and fourth years via major design, research and experimental projects. The program offers majors in Minerals Processing, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Food and Beverage Engineering as well as an interdisciplinary major in Renewable Energy.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Chemical is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 years. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia and 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.
