The School of CBE integrates the expertise and capabilities of the Chemical and the Biomedical Engineering Departments. The resulting mix of skills creates new horizons for engineering and enables the realisation of transformative new ideas into practical innovations.
This ranges from the development of bionic prosthetic implants to remediation of Antarctic landscapes. The sweep of technological applications is vast and we are focused on end-use inspired research.
We encompass mining, energy, material science, the environment, medical devices, medical imaging, drug delivery and food production. Our goal is to facilitate knowledge acquisition, research excellence, and its translation into technological, societal, industrial and medical innovation.
Department of Chemical Engineering
The Department has a broad range of engineering strengths that are encapsulated across four main research themes: Materials Development; Separations Technology; Surface Chemistry and Rheology; and Bioengineering.
Department of Biomedical Engineering
The Department of Biomedical Engineering drives research and education in medical technologies, health informatics and healthcare delivery.
