Te Tari Pūhanga Tukanga Matū
Chemical and Process Engineers develop the most sustainable production pathways to provide society with water, food, energy, and consumer goods.
We are driven by a desire to make the world a materially better place. Optimising the production and manufacture of life’s necessities, we lift populations from absolute poverty, lessen human’s impact on the environment, and make the most of our natural resources.
Our engineers are also involved in cutting-edge industries including pharmaceuticals, environmental management, energy production and management, waste processing, alternative fuel production, and nanotechnology.
