Specialise in Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering for your Bachelor of Engineering with Honours at Massey

Chemical and bioprocess engineering is the industrial processing of raw materials to higher value products through combinations of physical, chemical or biochemical action. These processes can be very diverse. Chemical and bioprocess engineers design, optimise and operate these processes.

Examples include:

  • fermentation of sugars to alcohol
  • production of pharmaceutical products
  • extraction of high value compounds
  • composting of organic waste
  • conversion of milk solids to dairy ingredients
  • conversion of wood into paper
  • production of fuels from waste streams.

A focus on innovative approaches

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering) will equip you with core chemical engineering skills for more traditional industries (oil, gas). But there is also a focus on innovative approaches such as nanotechnologies, biocatalysts, and clean processing techniques.

What will I learn?

The first year of study builds a solid platform of science principles with an engineering context, in common with the other engineering majors.

In the second year, you will build further on these fundamental sciences. You’ll also learn about their application to chemical and bioprocess engineering systems.

In your third year, your study will extend from the study of engineering and chemical principles to processing applications. These may include bio-separations and reactor technologies.

In the fourth year, you will design a major innovative production process to integrate the various engineering and science skills you’ve learned in earlier years of study.

Follow your interests

You can focus on particular processing industry sectors such as biotechnology, chemical processing, environmental engineering and renewable energy.

A Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering is a good fit if you:

  • have a keen interest in science and discovery
  • want to learn how to design and implement chemical and bioprocess plants
  • want to innovate processing techniques for a sustainable world.

Planning information

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours is a parts-based qualification. That means you must complete the first part, before moving to the second etc.

You’ll take eight 15-credit courses a year, 60 credits per semester and 120 credits a year.

See the Bachelor of Engineering main page for more information on planning.

Can't meet the entry requirements?

There are some alternative ways to help you enter the engineering qualification:

Certificate in Science and Technology

This one-semester pathway qualification is if you need extra preparation in mathematics (160105 Methods of Mathematics), physics (124100 Introductory Physics) or chemistry (123103 Chemistry for Modern Sciences). These courses can be taken separately (depending on your background) or as part of the CertScTech qualification.

Please note you must have achieved 16 Credits in NCEA Level 2 Mathematics (or equivalent) before you can enrol into 124100 Introductory Physics or 160105 Methods of Mathematics. To find out if you have what it takes, or what you need to do the introductory courses we recommend that you attempt the relevant quiz. Once you have completed the test/s, please contact the relevant course coordinator enquire through this page to discuss your suitability for this course or an alternative pathway.

Diploma in Science and Technology

This two-semester pathway is if you need extra preparation in mathematics, physics or chemistry.This is suitable if you wish to study a wide range of courses and keep your options open to change to another qualification.

You can also choose subjects from: biology, programming, statistics, food, accounting, marketing, finance and management.

Summer Compact Courses (at Auckland Campus only)

If you need extra preparation in mathematics, physics or chemistry, we have ‘compact’ courses over the summer that may help.

These courses are an intensive learning experience. You are advised to only take two introductory subjects. Tuition in each course takes six weeks and attendance is required during January and early February. These courses can be taken as a Certificate of Proficiency and can be put towards another qualification such as the BSc, BInfSc and BBus.

If you prefer to study at a slower pace, equivalent preparatory courses are available via Distance Learning mode:

  • 123103 Chemistry for Modern Sciences
  • 124100 Introductory Physics
