Chemical engineers come up with the best ways to convert raw matter—like minerals or oils—into products we can use. They design renewable energy solutions, new and improved medicines, chemical plants, cosmetics and food factories.
The University of Adelaide is the only South Australian university in the world’s top 50 for Computer Science and Engineering*.
What will you do?
Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Chemical) is interactive from the very first year. You’ll work with award-winning and industry-connected researchers and teachers as you:
- use knowledge and skills from engineering, chemistry, maths and biology to produce chemicals, fuel, drugs, and food
- learn how results in the lab scale up for commercial production
- undertake projects with external groups such as Engineers Without Borders
- benefit from tours, projects, and placements with companies like PepsiCo, Smiths Crisps, Jurlique, and BHP
- complete an eight-week practical experience.
Majors are available in:
- Food and beverage engineering
- Minerals processing
- Pharmaceutical engineering
- Renewable energy
Where could it take you?
You could come up with better ways to control air pollution or turn saltwater into fresh water. You might work alongside craft beer brewers. Perhaps you’ll mass-produce a biodegradable version of plastic or move into the exciting world of tissue engineering.
