Chemical Engineering is about the application of knowledge from understanding how materials and chemicals interact or how they can be converted in some way to a more useful form, as part of a processing, production or refining process.
Students will gain expertise in a number of chemical engineering fields including Process Systems Analysis, Chemical Thermodynamics, Environmental and Process Risk Management and Reaction Engineering, among others.
All applicants are required to have Chemistry ATAR, with equivalents considered.
Good question. It's what other organisations ask our graduates every year....Find out more
It's how we discovered that the quality of teaching here is the best in Western Australia. Being rated 5 stars by our graduates for 11 years in a row confirms that.
It's also how we learned from QILT that we’re Australia’s top ranked public university for student satisfaction.
And it's how we know that we're one of the best young universities in the world under 50 years old.
So the real question is, why not choose ECU?

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.
Attending an ECU prospective student event is a great way to help you decide what to study.
