Course summary

The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology offers PhDs in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology. Research within the Department covers a wide and exciting array of activities ranging from quite fundamental research in biology through to the traditional fields of chemical engineering.

Assessment

Thesis

After completing three years (nine terms) but no longer than four years, a PhD student must submit a thesis of up to 65,000 words. The thesis will be orally examined by two examiners, one who is internal and a second who is external to the University.

Essays

All first-year PhD (Probationary) students complete a literature review and compile their findings in a short report that is submitted three months after the start of their PhD.

Near the end of the first year, all students submit a first-year report and are assessed orally. Additionally, as part of the assessment, students will present their work to their examiners. If successful, the student will then be fully registered for the PhD.
