Chemical engineers invent, design and implement processes through which raw materials are converted into valuable products such as petrol, power and toothpaste. This specialisation promotes development of practical, laboratory-based skills, combined with expertise in computing and simulation. There is a strong focus on the sustainable development of chemical processes and products. Career opportunities in the field are extensive and encompass the petrochemical, mining, food, pharmaceutical or chemical industries.
|Objectives:||The course objectives are that graduates should have acquired: |
|Course Structure & Available Subjects:||The combined degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical)/Bachelor of Commerce requires a total of 500 points over five years. Students are required to complete 300 points of Engineering subjects and 200 points of Commerce subjects. |
The total of 200 commerce points must include the five compulsory subjects 316-101 Introductory Macroeconomics, 316-102 Introductory Microeconomics, 316-130 Quantitative Methods 1, 325-201 Organisational Behaviour (students who commenced Bachelor of Commerce double degree in 2005 are not required to complete this subject) and at least one of 316-206 Quantitative Methods 2 or 316-205 Introductory Econometrics or 325-210 Managerial Decision Analysis or 325-212 Market Research; at least 50 points at 100-level; and at least 50 points at 300-level (these must be completed at The University of Melbourne).
