Master of Bioproduct Manufacturing Engineering

Overview

Bioproduct manufacturing is an emerging but fast-growing industry. It looks at innovatively converting natural renewable biological resources, such as wood and crop waste, into a wide range of value added chemicals, materials and energy. With the increasing challenges of resource scarcity and environmental pollution, there is a strong global demand for bioproduct engineers who can design sustainable and environmentally friendly materials and energy-efficient sources.

A qualification in bioproduct manufacturing engineering from Monash University provides you with an opportunity to pursue your passion for sustainability and innovation and be part of the growing bio futures industry.

With a diverse set of skills in applied engineering coupled with lean manufacturing, project management and entrepreneurship, bioproduct manufacturing engineers will be uniquely placed in a rapidly expanding job market
