Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering


A postgraduate major in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is concerned with industrial processes, in which material in bulk undergoes changes in its physical or chemical nature.

Chemical and biomolecular engineers design, construct, operate and manage these processes and in this they are guided by economic, environmental and societal considerations.

Areas of study include process intensification, sustainability, water and environmental treatment processes, biomolecular and cellular engineering and food processing.
