MJRH-CHENG v.1 Chemical Engineering Major (BEng Hons)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
Chemical Engineering covers the development, design and operation of chemical processes and plants for the extraction, conversion and recovery of materials that is based on both chemical and biological systems. A great variety of process industries serve the needs of society. Among the more familiar are petroleum refining, gas processing, petrochemical and polymer production, bio-processing and bio-production, biopharmaceutics and food processing, fertilizer manufacture, cement and lime production, minerals and metals extraction and refining, paper and board manufacture, biomass and sugar refining, production of industrial and fine chemicals.
Major/Stream Learning Outcomes
A graduate of this course can:
1. apply scientific and engineering principles to process engineering design and development, including sound risk management, environmental and OHS practice
2. think critically and creatively to generate innovative and optimum solutions
3. identify, evaluate and synthesise information from a range of sources to optimise process engineering design and development
4. communicate effectively in ways appropriate to the discipline, audience and purpose
5. use appropriate information and process technologies (recognising their advantages and limitations) in the design and development of sustainable process systems
6. engage in continuous education, training and research, and take control of their own learning and development
7. recognise and apply international standards and best practice in process engineering
8. demonstrate respect for cultural diversity
9. be ‘career ready’ for the process engineering profession, demonstrate leadership qualities, and work ethically and professionally both within a team and independently
