GROWING & INSPIRING TOMORROW'S LEADERS

Chemical Engineering at UNSW – Growing and inspiring tomorrow’s leaders

The School of Chemical Engineering at UNSW Australia educates undergraduate and postgraduate students (master and PhD) in Chemical Engineering, Industrial Chemistry and Food Science & Technology. Equipped with multidisciplinary skills, our students can take on a variety of different roles in industry areas including petrochemicals, water, building, mining, health, food, consulting and finance. 

Many of our graduates have become great leaders and innovators in their field. In this video you will hear from current students and successful alumni, including John Cottier, BE (Hons) Chemical Engineering 69’ and Coral Colyer, BSc (Hons) Food Science & Technology 92’ talk about their experience with the School of Chemical Engineering. 

FEATURED: THE HY-CYCLE

Hy-Cycle - Australia's first fuel cell bike

UNSW researchers have built an Australian-first bicycle that can take riders up to 125 kilometres on a single battery charge and $2 of hydrogen.

The Hy-Cycle, created by a team including Associate Professor Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou and Technical Officer Paul Brockbank from the School of Chemical Engineering, is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.

The fuel cell provides electrical assistance with pedalling, enabling the rider to easily travel long distances or up hills.

This could make the Hy-Cycle a low-cost, sustainable transport option.
