Also known as bioengineering, this major combines chemical engineering with elements of science to develop new drug therapies, synthetic molecules, and environmental and industrial applications.
Bioengineers typically design and produce biomolecules, cell-based products and tissues, and have the expertise to work in a broad range of industries. They work with a range of products, from renewable chemicals and fuels to biodegradable plastics and biopharmaceuticals.
Bioengineering at UQ is offered in conjunction with chemical engineering and upon graduation, you'll be fully accredited as a chemical engineer.
Join a groundbreaking industry
- Bioengineers can create living cells to produce products and can design and optimise the bioprocess to manufacture bioproducts on a large scale.
- Work on groundbreaking projects that enhance the lives of others while using renewable resources and producing minimal waste on the environment.
