The Master of Professional Engineering (Chemical) is a flexible degree that will allow you to fast-track your career in chemical engineering.
The program includes a variety of advanced chemical engineering courses to help you extend your technical skills. You can choose to develop your expertise in renewable energy systems, mineral processing, low emissions technologies and advanced particle processing.
You can also broaden your skills base in a complimentary area, such as business and management skills, entrepreneurship and innovation, design or environmental management. You will also complete a year-long advanced chemical engineering project (design-based or theoretical - the choice is yours), which can potentially be linked to industry.
The flexible nature of the program puts you in control. Whether you want to specialise or diversify, move into a more senior role, lead teams or projects, develop sophisticated research and innovation skills for R&D roles - you can choose courses to support your personal career goals.
2-year or 1-year?
If you are a graduate of an Australian Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree, or equivalent, you can complete the MPE in just one year.
If you are an international student seeking professional recognition from Engineers Australia* and the Washington Accord, or if you wish to extend your engineering and professional expertise in an Australian context, the 2-year MPE is the ideal program. Your study program will be designed to build on your prior studies and develop the core technical competencies to ensure you qualify. You will complete courses in Process Simulations and Control, Project Management and Innovation in Process Industries, and Chemical Engineering Design.
* Pending accreditation of this degree by Engineers Australia.
