Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This double degree program combines the disciplines of chemical engineering and science, allowing students to study towards two degrees simultaneously. Students will study the concepts of chemical engineering, and choose a science specialisation in Energy and Environment; Process and Product Engineering or Food, Wine and Biomolecular Engineering. 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.
Standard 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). If Stage 2 studies were undertaken prior to 2017, the equivalent subject was known as Mathematical Studies.
Graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia and IChemE (UK).

With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the degree, the program can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately. Students will graduate with two separate parchments; one for each degree.
