Chemical and Materials Engineering

Chemical and Materials Engineering involves transforming raw materials into valuable end-products, and the development of high-performance materials for our modern society.

Subject overview

Chemical engineers draw on the chemical, physical and biological sciences to provide a systems approach to understand changes that take place in materials – from the molecular to the global scale. They also establish methods for required changes in composition, energy content, structure, or physical state. They often see engineering as a means towards useful outcomes. They can prioritise safety, loss prevention and environmental protection in their activities. These activities may include:

Converting raw materials into useful products: turning crude oil into petrol and plastics, turning milk into butter, cheese and powder, or processing biomaterials for body part replacements

Altering chemical, biochemical or physical states to create value-added products, such as face creams, washing powder, processed foods, coatings, and more

Managing, operating, and maintaining large-scale processes, such as drug manufacturing

These activities involve a sound knowledge of energy, raw materials, process chemistry and dynamics to achieve products, processes, and designs of the highest quality and efficiency. Our teaching philosophy also emphasises the shift from pollution prevention to clean technology.
