Chemical Engineering is one of the cornerstones of engineering education (alongside Civil, Mechanical and Electrical).
In broad terms Chemical Engineering is concerned with the application of knowledge from an understanding of how materials and chemicals interact or can be converted in some way to a more useful form, as part of a production or refining process.
Chemical engineers work in a wide range of domains from mineral processing, mining, oil and gas, through to industries associated with clothing, food, packaging, fertilisers, pharmaceuticals and many other manufacturing and biological processes.
This course is Commonwealth Government Supported for eligible students.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
This course is provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia. Full accreditation is normally granted when the first cohort of students graduate from the program. This is expected in 2015.
During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).
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.
Chemical Engineer, Process Engineer, Design Engineer, Plant Engineer, Petrochemical Engineer
