School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Established in 1946, the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Sydney offered the first university-level chemical engineering program in Australia. Since then, we have been committed to excellence in both teaching and research.

We offer an exciting range of chemical and biomolecular engineering undergraduate, postgraduate and research programs. Areas of study include chemical engineering, biochemical engineering and biotechnology, energy and environment, green product and process design, minerals processing, process systems engineering and sustainability. We also offer a unique industrial placement scholarship program, where top undergraduate students can spend 6 months of full time work undertaking high-level investigative projects with one of our industry partners.

The school is research-intensive and considered a world leader in many cutting edge areas of chemical and biomolecular engineering. Areas of research focus include bioengineering and biophysics, sustainable energy, drying and process technology, wastewater treatment, minerals and materials processing and smart membranes.
