    Master of Engineering (Biochemical)


Biochemical engineers explore the development of large-scale processes using microbial, plant or animal cells. You will learn to design novel bioprocesses that will have applications in the production of bioproducts as diverse as cosmetics, cheese, bioethanol, beer and drugs, led by international leaders in dairy innovation, bioremediation and biofuel production.

You will benefit from interaction with industry representatives and work on a design and a research project, which may take the form of an industrial placement. You will design novel bioproducts and bioprocesses that will have applications in food engineering, pharmaceutical production and environmental remediation or processes. This course will provide you with a formal qualification in biochemical engineering at the Masters level.


One of the following undergraduate degrees with a Chemical Systems major or sequence:
with a weighted average mark of at least H3 (65%).

All students studying at the University of Melbourne must satisfy the University’s English language entry requirements. For graduate entry, Engineering offers an alternative.
