Chemical Engineers have invented, designed and/or operated almost every product and service we know and love.
Our world-renowned researchers and academics draw on biology, biochemistry, chemistry, engineering, physics and mathematics, as well as economics and finance to design and develop cutting-edge process systems for the extraction, transformation and recovery of materials.
Our pioneering chemical engineering research helps to drive societal change in the sustainable use of finite resources. We help to tackle climate change, resource efficiency, and digitalisation focussing on water, energy, food and nutrition, health and wellbeing.
Services and laboratory testing
Our laboratory and research groups provide access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and analytical platforms for the analysis of chemicals, minerals and materials, brewery and food processing, plastics and biomass upgrading, sensors and chip manufacturing and testing, wastewater treatment, as well as pilot-scale units for industrial chemical processes.
Extensive undergraduate and postgraduate teaching
Our broad range of study options equip students for a rewarding career in chemical engineering. We offer a range of exciting, industry-relevant majors and minors – including minerals processing, pharmaceutical engineering, renewable energy – designed to enhance knowledge and practical skills.
Our industry-accredited undergraduate chemical engineering degree includes an embedded honours year, and our postgraduate masters and graduate diploma programs boost critical thinking.
