Bachelor of Engineering - Chemical (Honours)

The University of Adelaide

From minerals to pharmaceuticals, food to cosmetics, chemical engineers help solve important global challenges including energy storage, renewable energy, advanced manufacturing, and tissue engineering. This degree combines engineering with study across chemistry, mathematics and biology to produce products including chemicals, fuel, drugs, and food. The student experience is interactive from first year. You'll learn how to turn laboratory-scale research results into large-scale commercial production. Practical projects with external groups-including Engineers Without Borders-will provide you with unique opportunities to understand how chemical engineering is applied in the real world. The University of Adelaide is the only South Australian university in the world's top 50 for Computer Science and Engineering. You'll learn from award-winning and industry-connected researchers and teachers, and apply your knowledge to practical projects via study experiences including tours, projects, and work placements with companies such as PepsiCo, Smiths Crips, Jurlique, and BHP.
