Employment Opportunities

Chemical engineers work in a wide range of domains from mineral processing, mining, and oil and gas, through to industries associated with clothing, food, packaging, fertilisers, pharmaceuticals and many other manufacturing and biological processes. In Western Australia many chemical engineers find career opportunities in the extensive mining, mineral processing and oil and gas industries that dominate the industrial profile of the state. Chemical Engineers play a central role in both the production, refining and down stream processing in these important resource-based industries.
