Your qualification will be a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (Honours)
Chemical engineers invent, design and develop processes that convert raw materials into products, with minimal environmental impact. They are also involved with pollution control, protection of the environment and energy conservation and conversion.
Many everyday items involve chemical engineering during some stage of their production: computer chips, mobile phones, petrol, paper and coffee, just to name a few.
Chemical engineering has its foundation in chemistry, physics and mathematics, as well as other fields including the applied and biological sciences, and economics.
The demand for chemical engineers is increasing as populations grow and resources decline.
A degree in Chemical engineering leads to a wide range of careers, traditionally in the chemical, manufacturing, petrochemical and mining industries. But today the demand for chemical engineers is far more extensive, with opportunities in sectors such as computing, electronics, food, clothing and pharmaceuticals.
