Unit Group 2331: Chemical and Material Engineers.

Chemical process systems are created by materials engineers for tasks like removing and sorting components, inducing chemical reactions, moving heat, and analyzing and testing fuels. Materials engineers work with material producers to identify and assess the materials that are most suited for particular product applications. There might be a need to register or obtain a license. 

Occupations in this Group.

  • Chemical engineer ANZSCO code 233111
  • Material Engineer ANZSCO code 233112


  • preparing designs for chemical process systems and designing control systems for processes including those used to remove and separate components, effect chemical changes, test and assess fuels, transmit heat, and govern the storing and handling of solids, liquids, and gases
  • monitoring the use and upkeep of equipment to ensure optimal effectiveness while adhering to safety regulations
  • ensuring the usage of the appropriate tools and materials and that they adhere to the set standards
  • the identification of problems in chemical facilities and the implementation of corrective measures
  • the investigation of issues with product use and pollution prevention
  • examining new product blueprints and giving suggestions for material choices in accordance with design requirements and considerations including strength, weight, and cost
  • preparing and carrying out laboratory operations to create new materials and fabrication techniques for new materials to meet manufacturing cost and performance standards
  • holding discussions with material producers, such as those who make metals, ceramics, polymers, cement, and elastomers, while researching and assessing materials that are appropriate for a certain product application
  • reviewing data on product failure, carrying out lab testing to identify or rule out potential reasons, and offering suggestions for solutions to any issues
