You’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of material chemistry, including studies in analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry.
Chemical engineering studies will look at the mass and energy balances that are critical to large-scale processes. This includes heat transfer, fluid flow, mass transfer and reaction engineering for physical, chemical, metallurgical and biological processes.
You’ll also tackle a group design project, putting your studies into practice.
Second year will focus on developing your chemical engineering knowledge and skills. You will extend your understanding of chemical engineering processes with studies in process thermodynamics.
Your third year chemistry studies will include analytical spectroscopy where you’ll gain hands-on experience in elemental analysis using atomic spectroscopy techniques. You will also conduct engineering experiments, developing your scientific and research skills.
In fourth year, you will study your chemical engineering and chemistry specialisation.
Your laboratory skills and knowledge of chemistry will include advanced skills, advanced topics and new concepts. You’ll also develop the critical thinking and skills required to solve structural, energetic and kinetic problems associated with chemical, biological and physical processes.
The focus in your final year is on your design and research projects.
You’ll have the opportunity to work on a research project from your area of interest under the supervision of an academic staff member. You may have the opportunity to collaborate with an external organisation on these projects.
