What will I learn?

Develop your advanced engineering skills and contribute to industry-focused research projects, identifying solutions to existing and emerging chemical engineering problems.

You can select from existing applied research projects that are well supported by industry. These projects will deliver fundamental research leading to innovative new products, processes and knowledge.

Research opportunities are in the fields of rheology, advanced and functional materials, water and wastewater, energy, complex liquid flow, microfluidics, and surface science.

You will be expertly supervised while you work on a project in one of the following areas:

anaerobic digester hydrodynamics
biochemical engineering
biodegradable polymer nanocomposites
biomass utilisation and conversion
chaos and mixing
colloids science
corrosion and materials degradation
drinking water treatment
flow process and mixer analysis of complex fluids and multiphase mixtures
life cycle analysis of processes
microfluidics
nanodroplets, nanobubbles and nanocatalysts
polymer processing
rheology of polymers and sludge
surface science
water quality and wastewater treatment

This masters degree may be undertaken in a project, thesis with publication or thesis mode. Prospective candidates should discuss these modes of submission with their potential supervisor.

Career

A masters degree will provide you with a foundation for further studies into a PhD and employment in senior leadership and management research-based positions in a variety of government, non-government and corporate organisations.
