What will I learn?

Highlights

  • Gain skills and qualifications for designing industries such as oil and gas, LNG, water treatment, coal and minerals processing, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, paper and sugar.
  • Learn how to use chemistry, physics and business principles to design processes for making modern society’s energy (fuels), essential products (for example, water; pharmaceuticals), food and clean waste.
  • Practice designing and managing these processes using assessment which mimics real industrial situations.
  • Hone a creative ability required to come up with imaginative solutions to scientific issues.
  • Learn from enthusiastic lecturers with recent real world industry experience.

Why choose this course?

By studying chemical process engineering at QUT you'll have a qualification that is highly recognised by industry, with more training around business skills to prepare you for the real world financial environment in which industry operates. Your learning of chemistry, maths and physics will be applied to the energy and materials sectors of the economy. You'll also develop project management and leadership skills to approach complex and multidisciplinary problems. You'll have access to opportunities for site visits, work integrated learning and research projects.

As part of our commitment to diverse and real world learning, our mobility tours give you the opportunity to visit sites overseas. Visits have previously included Germany and Scandinavia.

Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Professional recognition

All graduates are eligible for an Engineers Australia (EA) membership. EA is a signatory to the Washington Accord, which permits graduates to work in various countries across the world. This course is recognised internationally in the engineering profession, giving QUT graduates more career opportunities overseas.

Chemical Process Engineering is a relatively new degree and we are currently in the process of seeking accreditation by the Institution of Chemical Engineers to provide additional international recognition.
