Through combining chemical with environmental engineering, you will design processes and products that minimise impacts on air, land and water. As a chemical and environmental engineer you will work with the following areas:
- Disposal of waste
- Environmental compliance – reducing the impact of spills and emissions
- Flooding and drainage
- Infrastructure and development
- Management of pollutants
- Recovery of damaged land (damaged through mining, farming or landfill)
- Water supply and sanitation
- Food and water
- Consumer products
- Oil and gas
- Project management
- Business management
In year one and two, students develop knowledge of the engineering fundamentals, science and design. In year three in addition to advanced modules, you will undertake an industry-focused group design project, which simulates a commercial environment and will allow you to develop and demonstrate valuable skills for your future career as a professional chemical engineer. Following a successful placement application, you will spend a year working in industry at the end of year three. In year five, you will be able to specialise by choosing modules that suit your own interests and career path. You will also undertake a research and development project, giving you first-hand experience in cutting-edge research and advanced design practices.
