BB-CENEXM v.1 Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical Engineering), Bachelor of Science (Extractive Metallurgy)
BEng(Curtin) OR BEng(Hons)(Curtin), BSc(Curtin)
Course CRICOS Code: 043753C
Registered full-time Duration: 5 Years
Bachelor Double Degrees prepare students to develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills in more than one discipline for professional work and further learning corresponding to AQF level 7 qualifications.
This course covers the development, design and operation of processes and plant for the extraction, conversion and recovery of materials. A great variety of process industries serve the needs of society. Among the more familiar are petroleum refining, gas processing, petrochemical and polymer production, fertiliser manufacture, cement and lime production, minerals and metals extraction and refining, paper and board manufacture, sugar refining, food processing, production of industrial and fine chemicals.
The Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering has full recognition by Engineers Australia and the Institution of Chemical Engineers. To qualify for the grade of Corporate Member of these institutions, graduates are required to complete a minimum of four years approved experience following the award of the Bachelor of Engineering degree. Further information regarding membership of professional institutions can be obtained from the Department of Chemical Engineering, or from Engineers Australia or the Institution of Chemical Engineers in Australia. The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy recognises the science course for admission to membership.
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
Course Entry and Completion Details
Applicants for a Bachelor Double Degree are required to meet University academic and English language entry standards; details are provided at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au and include flexible entry pathways. Any specific course entry and completion requirements must also be met.
Applicants require an ATAR ≥80; Mathematics Methods ATAR; and at least one of the following: Physics ATAR; Chemistry ATAR; Engineering Studies ATAR. Desirable: Mathematics Specialist ATAR. STAT is not accepted for mature age entry but may be used to demonstrate English Competence requirements.
Credit for Recognised Learning
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au.
Pathway to Further Study
Graduates with a Bachelor Degree may qualify for entry to some Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Master by Coursework degrees. Graduates with a Bachelor Degree with Honours may also qualify for entry to a Master or Doctorate by Research. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Specific Course Completion Details
To satisfy requirements, students must complete at least 12 weeks or equivalent of exposure to professional practice. This requirement can be met by appropriate work experience. Students must demonstrate that they have met these requirements by using a formal log book to record their professional experiences during this period of their degree study. Students are required to complete Senior First Aid training and provide evidence of it to the Faculty for graduation.
Bachelor Double Degrees include a combined degree study program leading to two awards. The duration of the double degree may vary among disciplines, but typically requires less time to complete than if the two undergraduate degrees were studied separately.
Students enrolled in the double degree program may elect to transfer to a single degree course in one of the two disciplines. In this event, the relevant Head of Department shall determine the amount of credit to be transferred to the single degree. The structure of Engineering, Science and Computing owned double degrees is such that students have the option of completing the component Engineering, Science or Computing degree in the minimum time, provided they elect to change from the double degree within the first two semesters of the course.
Duration and Availability
Students are based for the first three years at the Bentley Campus, for their fourth year at the Kalgoorlie Campus, and for the fifth year at the Bentley Campus (the year at Kalgoorlie Campus could be undertaken in the third year of the course). The opportunity to spend two semesters at a major regional centre for mineral processing and extractive metallurgy provides valuable experience for students. In certain cases, the need to complete appropriate bridging and special course units may result in extension of studies beyond the regular five-year term.
