About this course

Graduates of Chemical & Environmental engineering will be equipped to work effectively across technical, research and strategic roles to respond to present and future challenges associated with sustainably meeting the needs of the national and global population. Chemical & Environmental engineers will be accredited chemical engineers, with additional technical skills in the areas of waste management and resource recovery, water treatment and sustainable energy systems. They will have the skills and knowledge required to implement cleaner production, and to rigorously assess the long-term impacts of proposed products, processes and developments. This includes an understanding of key global challenges, the causes of these problems and barriers to the uptake of technical solutions. Chemical & Environmental engineers will be able to apply, assess and communicate a wide range of approaches to developing sustainable systems, including indicators of sustainability and different methods of community consultation and engagement. They will have a solid grounding in modelling and in analytical measurement in laboratory and field/industrial applications, including basic sampling design and data analysis.

Employment opportunities:

Chemical engineering is one of the most mobile and diverse careers you can choose. Your skills will allow you to work in a wide range of industries, government departments and private consultancies. For example you can work in: -

  • Environmental protection, management and safety
  • Natural resource utilisation and the energy sector
  • Chemical, petroleum and petrochemical industries
  • Biochemical, biomedical and pharmaceuticals industries
  • Computer-aided process and control engineering
  • Advanced materials design and manufacture
  • Minerals processing and related industries
  • Food processing
  • Product design and development

Chemical & Environmental Engineers will have the opportunity to work in all of these areas but will be sought after to work in the water, waste management, resource recovery, energy and sustainable practice sectors. For example, they will assist companies implement cleaner production practices, and will be involved in adaptation and planning for future environmental challenges in both the public and private sector. BE/ME graduates will have a head start in careers that require specialist skills and adaptability (e.g. in consulting, corporate/governmental advising or industrial research) or when applying for research higher degrees at the world's top research institutions.
