Course details

Summary

This endorsed research degree is completed by coursework and a thesis. It aims to provide a research focused learning environment in which students can develop their independent problem solving skills through supervised research. The degree may be awarded with Distinction.

Study in a number of advanced Engineering courses will provide each student with key technical knowledge to enhance and support their research activities.

Chemical and process engineers transform raw materials into processed, marketable products by chemical, physical, or biological means. They take science experiments performed in the laboratory and operate them on a commercial scale, taking into account economics, safety, and sustainability. Others are involved in the research and development of new products and processes, such as those in nanotechnology, biotechnology, or advanced materials.

Postgraduate study is an opportunity to obtain advanced knowledge and carry out original research. Chemical and Process Engineering offers a wide variety of research projects and postgraduate courses. We encourage postgraduate students to undertake a Master’s of Engineering by thesis.

The Master of Engineering (ME) includes a thesis from your chosen endorsement of 120 points, and up to 45 points of coursework.

Further study

Students can study a Doctor of Philosophy in Bioengineering, Chemical and Process Engineering, Civil Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering at UC.

Career opportunities

Postgraduate study can bring many career benefits eg, specialist skills and enhanced knowledge, entry into specific occupations, higher starting salary/progression rates, research capability/achievement and evidence of high academic attainment/self-discipline.

Start date: Monthly by arrangement with supervisor
