Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical Engineering) (Honours)/Bachelor of Business (Management)

RMIT University

Program Overview

Chemical engineering science, practice, and design are combined with core management principles to give you the ability to work at all levels of industry.Many engineers quickly move into positions of management within organisations. This double degree will give you an advantage, allowing you to advance into positions of responsibility and influence. A business degree will prepare you to operate in a complex financial system - something often associated with large engineering projects.

The focus of this degree is on industrial application, so fundamental engineering and management courses are linked to real situations.Your chemical engineering studies will cover the application of chemical, physics and biological sciences and technology to improve industrial processes. You’ll learn how to make the processing industries work more efficiently and minimise their environmental impact by using less energy and producing less waste.

The cost of studying at RMIT University varies largely depending on the type of university and the degree chosen. More often than not, humanities, arts, and education courses are less expensive than degrees in medical, engineering, or management. Furthermore, students who choose to study at the postgraduate level typically pay higher tuition fees, which again vary depending on the programme chosen. Most universities provide scholarships or financial aid to students in order to help them offset their tuition costs. Students should be aware that additional course fees and incidental expenses may not be included in tuition. On average, international students can expect to pay A$ 45,320 annually, to study in RMIT University.

Your degree will be recognised worldwide, and many Australian companies provide the opportunity for engineers to travel. In Australia, the major areas of employment are in:

  • chemical, petroleum and petrochemicals
  • the food industry
  • water
  • environmental management and pollution control
  • mining
  • plastics/polymers
  • biomaterials and diagnostic agents
  • pharmaceuticals and vaccines
  • cosmetics
  • electricity and gas
  • project design and consulting.

A chemical engineering graduate can work in areas from process and project engineering to marketing or research.
