Bachelor of Engineering - Chemical (Honours) / Bachelor of Arts

The University of Adelaide

This program equips graduates with a multidisciplinary skill-set. Students study the concepts of chemical engineering, and undertake an arts major of their choice. Chemical engineering involves the systematic design, development and operation of process systems for the extraction, transformation and recovery of materials. With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the combined program, it can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately.

Entry Requirements:

Prerequisites: SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods and Chemistry and one of Biology, Physics or Specialist Mathematics; International Baccalaureate: Chemistry (SL grade 4/HL grade 3) and either Mathematics (SL grade 4) plus Biology (SL grade 4/HL grade 3) or Physics (SL grade 4/HL grade 3); or Mathematics (HL grade 3). NOTE: SACE Stage 2 mathematics prerequisites have changed since the start of 2017. If students completed SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Studies in 2016 or prior, this is equivalent to the subject known as 'SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods' from 2017 onward.

Structure:

Students are required to complete 12 weeks of work experience as part of the engineering academic program.

Subjects you can Study:

Engineering-chemical; Engineering-minerals processing; Engineering-sustainable energy; Engineering-energy and environment; Engineering-product and process; Engineering-food, wine and biomolecular; Anthropology; Asian studies; Australian studies; Chinese; Classical studies; Cultural studies; Economics; English; Environmental studies; European studies; French; Geography; Gender studies; German; History; Indonesian; International studies; Italian; Japanese; Labour studies; Linguistics; Mathematical sciences; Media and communication; Modern Greek; Music studies; Philosophy; Politics; Psychology; Spanish

Further information:

A combined degree is an approved combination of two degrees, which includes components from both programs and satisfies the minimum of one of those degree programs but not both individual degrees (unlike a double degree).
