About this major

The information on this page relates to the 2024 intake of this specialisation.

Our Chemical Engineering for Energy specialisation explores making industrial processes smaller, cleaner, more energy efficient and more productive by smarter use of technology and smarter integration.

It is central to the ongoing transformation and future opportunities of a wide range of established and emerging industries including bulk chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, agriculture and renewable energy.

This specialisation will teach you how to apply process modelling techniques at multiple scales to develop a comprehensive understanding of real-life production scenarios, how to identify and quantify potential gains in productivity and efficiency under different operating conditions and how to design new chemical engineering equipment harnessing new production methods and technologies.

Graduate opportunities

As a graduate of our Chemical Engineering for Energy specialisation, you will be able to develop a career in a diverse industrial context, including water and wastewater treatment, minerals processing and atmospheric air protection.

You may pursue a career in research or with industry and government departments assessing the environmental, technical and economic impact of established and emerging technologies.
