Lead positive change and improve lives. The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Chemical and Biomolecular) will enable you to develop creative solutions throughout the chemical and environmental engineering fields.
By combining collaborative learning and research with first-hand industry experience, you will be positioned to revolutionise society's processes and address pressing environmental challenges.
As a chemical and biomolecular engineering student, you will learn from leading professionals and researchers as you develop a sophisticated knowledge of chemical, combustion, environmental, petroleum and water engineering. You will understand how to transform raw materials into beneficial products using chemistry, biology and physics. Throughout your studies you will also discover the emerging fields of nanotechnology and molecular biology, which are revolutionising energy and storage systems, food production and the healthcare industry.
During your four-year degree you will explore the challenges faced by process industries, including the chemicals, minerals, energy and agriculture, food, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors. Through practical learning, industry projects and specialised electives you will become an agent in the drive to create a sustainable society. A 12-week internship will give you invaluable professional experience, to complement your comprehensive knowledge. An embedded honours thesis enables you to design your own research project in a field of your choice.
With a growing need for more efficient renewable energy sources and environmentally sustainable processes, the knowledge and experiences you gain will position you at the forefront of a diverse and dynamic industry.
