The University of Adelaide

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

The University of Adelaide

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

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.


Students are required to complete 6 weeks of work experience as part of the engineering academic program.

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).
