Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science

Monash University

Combining chemical engineering with pharmaceutical science, this double degree is unique in Australia and rare worldwide. Chemical engineers can design, run and troubleshoot production facilities, but their training typically excludes the skills to develop pharmaceutical and related products. Similarly, formulation scientists can invent and test new products such as pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetics, but they lack the know-how to manage the product process beyond the laboratory stage. This double degree produces professionals capable of covering the full spectrum of the pharmaceutical product design and development process.
