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.
This field of study combines our undergraduate engineering program with master’s level coursework and a semester-long placement or research thesis with an industry or research partner.
These courses are designed to provide specialist knowledge of the various disciplines and place you closer to the leading edge of technology. Industry needs graduates who can apply new technologies to existing and emerging industries. The master’s courses will give you a clear and demonstrable advantage when applying for jobs that require advanced skills and capabilities.
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.
