Integrated Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Master of Engineering (BE(Hons)/ME)

The Integrated Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Engineering (BE (Hons)/ME) is the first five-year engineering degree in Australia to integrate a semester industry or research placement into a degree with Master’s level course work. This unique combination in an undergraduate degree will provide graduates with world class knowledge and skills in their field of study as well as an enhanced ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams and across fields.

Chemical Engineering fields of study:

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers invent, design, and manage products and processes that transform raw materials into valuable products using the latest knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics to ensure minimum loss of materials and consumption of energy. The Integrated BE/ME in Chemical Engineering builds on the project centred curriculum in the first three years of the BE and gives students advanced skills and employment outcomes.

Chemical & Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering bridges the gap between technology, medicine and biology. It integrates physical, chemical, mathematical and computational sciences and engineering principles with the ultimate aim of improving health care.

Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering

Combine engineering with science to develop new drug therapies, synthetic molecules and devices for medical, environmental and industrial applications. This involves learning how to engineer living cells to produce a product, and how to design and optimise bioprocesses to manufacture bioproducts on a large scale.

Chemical & Environmental Engineering

Chemical & Environmental engineers are accredited chemical engineers, with additional technical skills in the areas of waste management and resource recovery, water treatment and sustainable energy systems. They have the skills and knowledge required to implement cleaner production, and to rigorously assess the long-term impacts of proposed products, processes and developments including an understanding of key global challenges, the causes of these problems and barriers to the uptake of technical solutions.

Chemical & Materials Engineering

Materials engineers apply their knowledge of materials behaviour to optimise processing and improve the properties of products. The Integrated BE/ME in Chemical & Materials Engineering builds on the project centred curriculum in the first three years of the BE to put students closer to the cutting edge of knowledge and technology in fields important to chemical and materials research and industry.

Chemical & Metallurgical Engineering

The Integrated BE/ME in Chemical & Metallurgical Engineering builds on the project centred curriculum in the first three years of the BE, with the final 2 years built around a placement semester to give students an advantage for employment in Australia's resources sector whilst maintaining employment options in other industries.

Master of Engineering

The Master of Engineering is designed to develop your expertise through advanced courses and specialised electives. The program is a pathway to becoming an accredited engineer and has been submitted for accreditation to Engineers Australia.

Master of Sustainable Energy

The Master of Sustainable Energy aims to equip the next generation of energy leaders, managers and decision makers with the skills and knowledge to address the challenges at the nexus of energy, climate change and sustainability.

As one of the few programs in the world to offer you a cross-disciplinary education with direct industry contact and practical experience, you will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of energy systems, responsible business practice and contemporary energy challenges.

Master of Engineering Science

The Master of Engineering Science (MEngSc) degree is a 3-semester (full-time enrolment at #8 per semester) program. A 1 year (2 semester) program is offered to students who have a four-year degree in the same field. Students in this program are taught by staff who are internationally recognised as leading experts in their fields, using state-of-the-art facilities.

Master of Engineering Science (Management)

The MESc (Man) combines postgraduate studies in selected fields of engineering (Electrical; Software) or (Chemical; Civil; Materials; Mechanical; Mechatronic; within the Undeclared major). The program combines with studies in selected fields of business. For existing engineering professionals, undertaking this program will meet your professional and personal development needs in the future.
