Stream Outline

This stream extends over four years and students study full-time during the day for twenty-four weeks of each year (excluding examination and recess periods).

An academic member of staff in the School of Chemical Engineering, as designated by the Head of School, may approve various program patterns involving full-time or part-time study.

Stream Structure

The stream structure below gives one sequence of courses that fulfils the requirements of the major. However, many courses are offered only once per year and others have pre-requisites or exclusions which govern the order in which they can be taken. Both of these things can have a big impact on enrolment planning if poor choices of course combinations are made. Students are strongly encouraged to consult the School website for advice on course sequences that are consistent with timetabling and availability.

The timing of the general education courses and elective courses may be modified to optimise the student's choice of courses. It is the students responsibility to plan their enrolments appropriately.

NOTE: It is VERY IMPORTANT to check recommended course sequences as explained under Stream Structure.
