Qualifications

Overview

A Chemical and Process Engineering degree will train you to process raw materials into marketable products that add value to the world, in a way that directly correlates to happiness, life-expectancy, and reducing emissions from economic output.

You will tackle society’s greatest challenges:

  • converting natural resources to high-value products
  • supplying clean, safe drinking water
  • creating sustainable energy
  • harnessing microbes to produce designer chemicals and pharmaceuticals
  • improving society’s health and well-being
  • providing a sustainable food supply.

Minors in Bioprocess Engineering, Environmental Process Engineering, and Energy Processing Technologies

The Bioprocess Engineering minor prepares biologically-minded engineers to meet industry demand for products such as medicines, vaccines, beverages, vitamins, alternative fuels, and clean water. You will learn about harnessing the natural power of bacteria and algae for creating new products and treating waste.

The Energy Process Technologies minor prepares energy-focused engineers to develop renewable and existing energy sources (such as hydrogen, solar, wind, natural gas, and oil).

The Environmental Process Engineering minor prepares environmentally-minded engineers to meet society’s growing commitment to improving the environment.

Note: The new Environmental Process Engineering minor is subject to Te Pōkai Tara | Universities New Zealand CUAP approval, due July 2020.
