Hey. Ive just finished my first year of uni, and it is almost time to enrol in next years units. I have been kicking up between chemical and mechanical engineering for the past year, but after much research, i think ill go with chemical and process engineering. I was reading about the chemical engineering program for my university (Uni. of West Australia), and there were a few things that got me asking questions. Although the program isnt fully accredited by "The Institute of Engineers Australia", it is currently under probation and will more than likely become accredited soon enough (i hope). It is also not accredited by the UK Institute of Chemical Engineers. I found this a bit strange because UWA is the most highly regarded uni in West Australia, and ranked one of the best in Australia, so usually has high standards. Anyway, will a lack of accreditation from such organizations have a great inpact on my future career? Should i be looking elsewhere? Most of the other programs are fully accredited, it just seems that the chemical stream is still in progress. In general, what does a good chemical engineering program consist of? Here are the core units required at my university: YEAR ONE - 48 POINTS MATH1020 Calculus, Statistics and Probability MATH1010 Calculus and Linear Algebra PHYS1101 Advanced Physics A GENG1003 Introduction to Professional Engineering GENG1001 Eng: Introduction to Engineering Mechanics CHEM1102 Organic Chemistry YEAR TWO - 48 POINTS MATH2040 Engineering Mathematics MATE1412 Materials Engineering 1 GENG1002 Eng: Introduction to Electrical and Electronic Engineering CHEM1101 Inorganic and Physical Chemistry YEAR THREE - 48 POINTS CHPR2431 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics CIVL2130 Hydraulics I CHPR3530 Process Modules CHPR2530 Process Fundamentals GENG2140 Modelling and Computer Analysis for Engineers YEAR FOUR - 48 POINTS CHPR3432 Chemical Kinetics and Reactor Design CHPR2432 Heat and Mass Transfer CHPR3531 Process Modelling YEAR FIVE - 48 POINTS CHPR4401 Chemical Engineering Design Project Part 1 CHPR4402 Chemical Engineering Design Project Part 2 Chemical and Process Engineering Project Unit (Group A,B or C) Chemical and Process Engineering Project Unit (Group A,B or C) MCTX3421 Control and Mechatronics I am doing a combined engineering and commerce degree, so all of the remaining spaces will be filled with finance units and five optional engineering units to make a total of about 8-10 units per year. Now obviously i wouldnt expect everyone to know the exact details of the units i posted above since it will vary between universities, but does it look like a good program? Does it cover what most good chemical and process engineering degrees should? Thanks in advance, Daniel.
