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 standard BE/BSc combined degrees require a total of 500 points, within which students must take a minimum of 300 engineering points and 237.5 science points. The total points of a standard course can be kept to 500 as at least 50 points of core material within the various streams of engineering also earn science points. |
BE/BSc course structure
To satisfy course requirements students must:
take the set of core engineering subjects prescribed for the branch of engineering being studied. This will include the professional study requirements in one of chemical engineering, civil engineering, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering; and either electrical, computer or software engineering;
All students in the combined degree Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Science are required to complete 237.5 science points, which must include:
A full list of subjects available for science credit for the BE/BSc;
