The University of Adelaide

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

The University of Adelaide

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

This double degree program combines the disciplines of chemical engineering and finance, allowing students to study towards two degrees simultaneously. Students will study the concepts of chemical engineering with broad coverage of the global and institutional aspects of financial systems. Chemical engineering involves the systematic design, development and operation of process systems for the extraction, transformation and recovery of materials. Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.


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