Bioproduct Manufacturing Engineering - E6007

Bioproduct Manufacturing Engineering

Expert master degree

Climate change, pollution and the conservation of fossil fuels are major challenges facing the world today. Governments, businesses and the public are looking to the bioeconomy and biomanufacturing industry for sustainable and renewable solutions. Traditional biobased industries, such as pulp and paper, have a unique opportunity to create these solutions, but they require industry innovation to overcome the challenges of sustainable manufacturing. To do this, they need a new generation of engineers with entrepreneurial and advanced manufacturing skills to drive this change and become future industry leaders. If you see yourself playing a vital role in shaping the transformative technologies of the future, the Master of Bioproduct Manufacturing Engineering is for you.

You’ll learn core engineering principles with specialist topics in the field of advanced bioproduct manufacturing engineering. You’ll gain enhanced technical and research skills, and develop the entrepreneurial acumen sought by a broad range of industries, particularly local and international bio-based industries. Lead the transition toward the bioeconomy and apply now.
