Specialise in Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering for your Bachelor of Engineering with Honours at Massey
Chemical and bioprocess engineering is the industrial processing of raw materials to higher value products through combinations of physical, chemical or biochemical action. These processes can be very diverse. Chemical and bioprocess engineers design, optimise and operate these processes.
fermentation of sugars to alcohol
production of pharmaceutical products
extraction of high value compounds
composting of organic waste
conversion of milk solids to dairy ingredients
conversion of wood into paper
production of fuels from waste streams.
A focus on innovative approaches
The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering) will equip you with core chemical engineering skills for more traditional industries (oil, gas). But there is also a focus on innovative approaches such as nanotechnologies, biocatalysts, and clean processing techniques.
What will I learn?
The first year of study builds a solid platform of science principles with an engineering context, in common with the other engineering majors.
In the second year, you will build further on these fundamental sciences. You’ll also learn about their application to chemical and bioprocess engineering systems.
In your third year, your study will extend from the study of engineering and chemical principles to processing applications. These may include bio-separations and reactor technologies.
In the fourth year, you will design a major innovative production process to integrate the various engineering and science skills you’ve learned in earlier years of study.
Follow your interests
You can focus on particular processing industry sectors such as biotechnology, chemical processing, environmental engineering and renewable energy.
A Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering is a good fit if you:
have a keen interest in science and discovery
want to learn how to design and implement chemical and bioprocess plants
want to innovate processing techniques for a sustainable world.
