Chemical and materials engineering combines chemical engineering with additional specialist study in materials engineering.
Materials engineering involves the selection, processing and development of materials to design and make products. Materials, such as metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites, give manufactured products their functional and aesthetic qualities.
As a chemical and materials engineer, you'll apply your knowledge of the behaviour of materials to improve both the processing and the properties of a particular product while reducing emissions and waste.
Solve real issues
- You’ll explore the relationships between microstructures, mechanical properties, manufacturing and service performance and solve real problems informed by industry needs and the latest research.
- You'll work across a broad range of exciting industries on everything from your phone screen, to running shoes, aircraft wings and artificial skin.
