Chemical Engineering

What is Chemical Engineering?
Chemical Engineering involves the design and development of large-scale processes which enhance the manufacture of products formed from chemicals, microorganisms, and other raw materials.

Chemical Engineering is used in industrial, biological and environmental fields for the production of materials such as fuels, fertilisers, foods, alcohol, polymers and pharmaceuticals.

Graduates are employed in a very wide range of industries including chemical, mineral, pharmaceutical, food and energy industries.

Chemical Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
