CRICOS course code: 080724A
Level of study: Undergraduate
The integrated Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) and Master of Engineering (BE (Hons)/ME) is the first 5 year engineering degree in Australia to integrate a semester placement, either in industry or research, into a degree with the Master's level course work. This unique combination in an undergraduate degree will provide graduates with world class knowledge and skills in their field of study as well as an enhanced ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams and across fields. These are the attributes required to tackle current and future issues facing society and to create value for industry and society through innovation. BE(Hons)/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.
Chemical and Materials Engineering
Chemical engineering is concerned with inventing, designing, and managing products and processes that transform raw materials into valuable products such as bio-fuels, plastics, wine, pharmaceuticals, and artificial blood. This is done using the latest knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics to ensure viable commercial production whilst minimising loss of materials and energy consumption. This value-adding must be safe, economical and environmentally sound. Materials engineering is concerned with the selection, processing and development of materials to design and make products. Materials - metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites - give manufactured products their functional and aesthetic qualities. These two areas of engineering combine well because the properties of materials are often strongly affected by their processing. In addition, chemical processes are conducted in vessels, pumps, reactors and other equipment where the selection of the right materials of construction and material behaviour over time is very important. Chemical & Materials Engineers are ideally suited to work at this interface which is important for industry as well as cutting edge areas like biomaterials, nanotechnology and novel composites.
