Course Description

In this course you’ll learn how to develop technology to extract metals and commodities from raw materials from the earth using sustainable methods. You’ll explore the design, commissioning and operation of engineering processes and plants. You will learn how to harvest mineral resources in safe and responsible ways using the latest chemical and metallurgical processes.

You’ll have the opportunity to work in mineral processing and metallurgical plants as part of your studies and develop an understanding of the resources industry and markets through direct links with industry.

When you graduate, you’ll be eligible to become a professional member of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.

As a Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering graduate, you’ll enjoy a wide range of career opportunities worldwide, in areas such as resources industries, research and development companies, and the consulting services sector, which demand chemical engineering and mineral processing skills.
