Engineering (Honours) (Chemical)
Master of Engineering

Why did you choose to study your discipline?

The chemical engineering major of UQ is in the top 50 in Australia and even in the world. The high ranking reflects the excellent teaching quality, to a certain extent. Moreover, it is learned from the official website that graduation requires 450 hours of working time, which shows that UQ more mind about cultivating students' ability to work in society in the future. UQ has always given students the most significant power of choice. They don't have to choose a specific engineering major in the first year. We can find their direction through the elective courses in different directions under the Institute of technology. Through the first year of choosing different engineering elective courses, I am more determined than chemical engineering is very suitable for me.

What advice do you have for prospective students interested in studying engineering, architecture, computer science and/or information technology at UQ?

I think students should think about the following questions before choosing.

  1. Know the professional content, understand the difference between engineering and science or other degrees.
  2. You should have a specific plan for your future career after graduation, such as what kind of work you will be engaged in and where.
  3. Engineering is a challenging major. Are you ready to face the challenge of becoming an engineer?
  4. When encountering the shock and difficulty from the study, can you keep your original intention instead of looking for a way out?

After thinking, students who are interested in engineering are making choices instead of blind ones.

What do you love most about your degree?

I like my major most because it is closely related to our life. Chemical Engineering covers all aspects of life and has a significant impact on the development of society and the country, such as sustainability. The most important thing is that this is an indispensable profession. I don't think it will be replaced by artificial intelligence in a short time.
