About this course

Graduates of the dual major in Chemical & Environmental engineering are accredited chemical engineers who have additional skills to help them tackle current and future environmental challenges. In addition to core chemical engineering courses, Chemical & Environmental engineering students study specialised courses which develop knowledge and expertise in environmental systems thinking and modelling, environmental regulation and sustainable management of water, energy and waste. Job opportunities in this field are diverse, including process engineering, industrial ecology, waste recovery, environmental modelling, impact assessment, water supply and treatment, climate policy, energy systems, environmental regulation and sustainability. Our graduates will be employed across sectors, including industry, government and consulting firms.
