TRANSCRIPT

  • TOM PERFREMENT BE IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

    WHAT DO CHEMICAL ENGINEERS DO? Chemical engineers design, create and optimise the systems and equipment used in chemical, industrial, biological and environmental processes. They produce a range of materials, from fuels and fertilisers to processed foods, beer and wine, polymers, and pharmaceuticals.

    CAREER OPPORTUNITIES You could work in water treatment and recycling,

    environmental management, energy and

    petrochemical industries, research, from molecular

    level up to full heavy-industry scale. Chemical

    engineers may be involved in the manufacture and

    commercialisation of products such as

    nanomaterials, energy, food and clean water, or in

    designing systems and processes to manage

    environmental impacts.

    “I was drawn towards the numerical, problem solving nature of engineering, yet it was my interest in chemistry and the ability of chemical engineers to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges, which led me to choose the ‘universal engineering’ field

    – chemical engineering. Undertaking a chemical engineering degree at UNSW has already provided me with priceless skills and I am looking forward to a stimulating and rewarding career.”

    CHEMICAL ENGINEERING Chemical engineering bridges the study of the

    chemical and physical sciences with engineering.

    The major areas of chemical engineering activities

    are: the design and development of chemical

    processes and equipment; optimisation and control

    of industrial operations; plant operation and

    management; and environmental management and

    pollution control. Management, critical analysis and

    economics are very important components of the

    undergraduate training.

    So what's this d egree all about?

    YOUR CAREER unPACKED*

    UNSW ENGINEERING Not only are we the largest engineering faculty in

    Australia with the widest choice of degrees through

    our nine schools, we also have 65 years of experience,

    passionate academics, brilliant engineering

    researchers and partnerships with government and

    industry, both here and overseas. It’s no wonder we

    are the #1 engineering faculty in the country.*

  • Chemical engineers are some of the most flexible and

    highly employable graduates, working across many

    industries. This degree not only provides students with

    valuable technical skills but also analytical and problem-

    solving skills to help them work effectively as part of any

    team. Take this degree alone or you could combine it with

    a second degree.

    RECOMMENDED KNOWLEDGE There are no prerequisites but you’ll be at an advantage if

    you have studied HSC Mathematics Extension 1 or 2,

    Chemistry, Physics and Engineering Studies. If you are

    unsure about your level of knowledge please contact us.

    Bridging Courses are available – check out our website for

    more information.

    INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE We love to produce graduates who are ready to hit the

    ground running, so we make it a compulsory part of their

    degree to complete at least 60 days of approved industrial

    experience. Students need to find their own industrial

    training places within Australia or overseas and are given

    the option to combine study with their industrial placement

    in fourth year.

    PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION The BE (Hons) in Chemical Engineering is professionally

    accredited by both Engineers Australia and the Institution of

    Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
