ANZSCO Code for Chemical Engineer

ANZSCO Code for Chemical Engineer

ANZSCO Code for Chemical Engineer that is used in order to apply for Engineer Australia Migration Skills Assessment is 233111.


Chemical Engineer utilizes logical and engineering standards to examine, develop and fabricate chemicals, drugs, fuels, foods and a wide scope of different items. They configure tests, make security methodology for working with risky chemicals, direct tests and monitor results all through the production. A solid background in chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics is vital.

Ordinarily, Chemical Engineers will spend significant time in a specific procedure, similar to oxidation, or specialize in a specific field or item. They should be able to tackle issues as they emerge and assess the engineering procedure for security consistence and ecological guidelines.

Group: 2331 Chemical and Materials Engineers


The job of this unit group  is to design and prepare specifications for chemical process systems and the construction and operation of commercial-scale chemical plants, and supervise industrial processing and fabrication of products undergoing physical and chemical changes, and investigate the properties of metals, ceramics, polymers and other materials and assess and develop their engineering and commercial applications.


  • preparing designs for chemical process systems and planning control systems for processes such as those used to remove and separate components, effect chemical changes, test and evaluate fuels, transfer heat, and control the storing and handling of solids, liquids and gases
  • monitoring the operation and maintenance of equipment to achieve maximum efficiency under safe operating conditions
  • ensuring correct materials and equipment are used and that they conform to specifications
  • diagnosing malfunctions in chemical plants and instituting remedial action
  • studying product utilization and pollution control problems
  • reviewing plans for new products and submitting material selection recommendations in accordance with design specifications and factors such as strength, weight and cost
  • planning and implementing laboratory operations to develop new materials and fabrication procedures for new materials to fulfil production cost and performance standards
  • conferring with producers of materials, such as metals, ceramics, polymers, cements and elastomers, during the investigation and evaluation of materials suitable for specific product applications
  • reviewing product failure data and implementing laboratory tests to establish or reject possible causes, and advising on ways to overcome any problems
