Course Description

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 program 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 for the improvement of 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.

Management studies will provide a thorough core of knowledge related to the roles and functions of business management. Managers deal with a range of complex issues, including wider economic and social factors.

As part of this program you’ll have the opportunity to design creative solutions through inspiring and sustainable design-and-build projects, as well as taking part in the Engineers Without Borders Challenge - a humanitarian-focused course offered in all RMIT engineering degrees.

To ensure you graduate job-ready, you’ll also have an opportunity to undertake a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective.
