You’ve successfully developed an anti-cancer drug, or perhaps you’ve grown the cell cultures for an artificial skin—now you need to produce it on a large scale. This is where your double degree in chemical engineering and biotechnology is invaluable.
Chemical engineers apply biotechnology to make products on a large scale. These integrated skills can be applied to managing the environment, diagnosis and cure of diseases, improving crop plants and stock, detecting pollutants and contaminants, and using organisms to produce chemicals, including drugs and food.
This double degree enables you to tackle problems ranging from petrol refining and devising biotechnological methods, to purifying drinking water.
This program is ideal if you’re interested in:
1. developing biological-based products and processes
2. making processing industries more efficient
3. making commercially-viable products from biological material.
Most commencing students will enrol online. If you are required to enrol online you need to log in to my RMIT and click on the link to Enrolment Online. You can enrol online at any time before the deadline in your offer letter from any computer with internet access.
If you need to enrol via the paper-based process your offer letter will tell you and you will enrol at your program information session.
