Engineering is one of the most sought-after degrees by employers world-wide because engineers solve problems in almost every facet of our lives.

They do this by balancing creative design, analysis and applied science, and are involved in making key decisions within almost every industry on earth, including the construction of buildings, roads and major infrastructure projects, alternative energy system development, electronics and transport, biomedical implants and much more!

The University of Tasmania has redesigned its engineering curriculum to create the next generation of professional Engineers. Graduates who are committed to crafting modern engineering solutions that are sustainable, economically feasible, safe, and appropriate to context and purpose. If you want to play a major role in raising living standards, improving the quality of life in our community, and protecting our environment, this is the study option for you.

In choosing a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours you will:

  • Build a degree that is tailored specifically to your own interests and ambitions. Specialise in Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineering, then tailor your study with elective units, projects, work experience, and extra-curricular activities that customise your learning towards your career of choice.
  • Learn through hands-on practical experiences including industry placements, laboratory work and independent research projects.
  • Develop a combination of specialised and transferable skills that have your graduating work ready and attractive to employers
  • Enjoy being mentored by highly qualified teaching, research and professional staff, people with long standing industry links, and many of whom are leaders in their field.

From 2018 onwards, our new curriculum offers you more flexibility and choice in how your degree is structured and real-world learning embedded in every course. For more information on this exciting change and for a list of courses that will be offered under the new model from 2018, visit www.utas.edu.au/anewstateofmind

You will gain a broad, practical foundation of engineering skills and knowledge, covering physical sciences, mathematics and engineering science, followed by specific theory and practice in one of the specialised engineering fields.

Group work, projects, and engineering design competitions provide extra challenges and opportunities to work alongside world-class academics and researchers. The university also encourages you to find opportunities for international exchange and all students undertake 12 weeks of integrated work experience as part of their degree. Engineering is about design and making, and we ensure you have the skills and experience to do both when you graduate.

Our new engineering degree also lets you customise your learning towards your career of choice by studying complementary units from another area of the University. For example, pick up units from the Faculty of Health for a career in biomedical engineering.

The degree is desired by employers world-wide, with graduates being highly sought after due to the hands-on and multi-disciplinary nature of their education.

Your Engineering learning experience goes beyond lectures, labs and tutorials, ensuring you graduate with significant practical experience, prepared to meet the challenges of your future career.

The university has a commitment to providing hands-on training across a breadth of engineering disciplines, and to conducting inter-disciplinary research that benefits our students as well as the community. You benefit from our expertise and long standing connections in fields such as alternative energy systems, high-speed catamarans, and biomedical implants.

We also have strong industry partnerships across a variety of industries including TasNetworks, Hydro Tasmania, Incat, Tasmania Police, Entura Energy, Shree Minerals, Mineral Resources Tasmania and Copper Mines of Tasmania, to name a few!

Formula SAE and the UTAS motorsport team

The Formula SAE Competition is a national competition between universities. The UTAS Motorsport team brings together students from engineering and other areas of the University conceive, design, fabricate and compete with a small, formula-style racing car. The group work, projects and competitions provide extra challenges and opportunities to work alongside world-class academics and researchers. While this competition is particularly relevant for those who wish to pursue a Mechanical Engineering specialisation, the Motorsport Team needs and attracts cross-discipline interest.

Our practical, hands-on learning approach

A major feature of your Engineering studies is the emphasis placed on laboratory and workshop work. The design classes provide you with opportunities to learn the techniques of developing safe and reliable designs, and you write regular reports to ensure your experience is complete and prepares you for the demands of industry. For both the laboratory, workshop, and design classes, extensive use is made of computer aided design and implementation.

Dedicated labs and workshops provide you with a huge range of technology and testing environments for your specialist discipline. This delivers extensive first-hand experience with industry standard equipment for your career of choice.

These include:

  • Aerodynamics lab
  • Applied Mechanics lab
  • Communications Engineering lab
  • Concrete and Structural Testing lab
  • Control Systems Laboratory
  • Dynamics lab
  • Electronics lab
  • Geomechanics lab
  • Hydraulics lab
  • Mechanical workshop
  • Mechatronics lab
  • Power lab
  • Renewable Energy Lab
  • Stress Analysis lab
  • Thermodynamics lab

STEM Student Ambassadors

Undergraduates can also serve as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Student Ambassadors. The goals of the program are to provide exceptional STEM education, outreach and community engagement in schools and elsewhere. The program provides opportunities and experiences that will lead to personal and professional growth for participants, particularly improving public speaking skills.

Overseas Exchange

Our international exchange program offers opportunities for a semester of study at universities around the world. Exchange can allow students to have an affordable educational and cultural experience in a foreign country for a semester or a full year. To facilitate this, we offer a range of scholarships and financial assistance. Participants may be eligible for OS-HELP Loans or scholarship funding to assist with their airfares, accommodation and other expenses.

Find out more about Student Exchange.

Industry work placement

All engineering students undertake 12 weeks of industrial experience via work placement, typically in the summer between your third and fourth year. In most cases, students arrange this experience placement themselves via the connections and networks they form during their first years of study. At the discretion of the employer this experience can be paid at the appropriate award rate, and based on your performance, can lead to graduate positions at the completion of your degree.

Our teaching staff are also here to help, identifying networking opportunities through their long standing industry connections and highlighting particular businesses that allow you gain experience in your area of interest. We can also help arrange the placements in some circumstances.

Career outcomes

The University of Tasmania’s focus on hands-on training and inter-disciplinary research makes our degree highly desirable in the international landscape.

Students work alongside our team of world-class academics and researchers, gaining practical knowledge that can be applied in a wide variety of careers. These opportunities cover a broad range of disciplines and skills in a world where there is an ever-increasing demand for people in the profession.

Course structure

All students start their degree with a common first year including foundation studies in civil, mechanical and electrical engineering. This multi-disciplinary, design focused first year enables you to select the area of engineering which you are best suited after gaining a valuable framework of experience.

You then choose a specialist area of study within the core engineering disciplines, civil, electrical and mechanical, and focus on that through a combination of theory, design oriented projects, industry experience, and major laboratory work.

Our new engineering degree lets you customise your learning towards your career of choice by studying complementary units from another area of the University. For example, pick up units from the Faculty of Health for a career in biomedical engineering.

The first year of all specialisations can be studied at the Launceston campus; however, students will need to move to Hobart to continue their studies in second year onwards.

Industry Experience

All engineering students undertake 12 weeks of industrial experience via work placement, typically in the summer between your third and fourth year. In most cases, students arrange this experience placement themselves via the connections and networks they form during their first years of study. At the discretion of the employer this experience can be paid at the appropriate award rate, and based on your performance, can lead to graduate positions at the completion of your degree.

Our teaching staff are also here to help, identifying networking opportunities through their long standing industry connections and highlighting particular businesses that allow you gain experience in your area of interest. We can also help arrange the placements in some circumstances.

Integrated Honours

In your fourth year, you will undertake a substantial high-level, two-semester project within your engineering specialisation. This involves an analysis of requirements, feasibility study, and design and development, usually resulting in a prototype.

Note, this course has a phased rollout i.e. Year 1 in 2018, Year 2 in 2019, Year 3 in 2020 and Year 4 in 2021.

Entry requirements

If you're interested in studying the Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours, you'll need to meet the general entrance requirements of the University and any course-specific requirements.

School leavers

An ATAR score of 70 or higher and successful completion of the following prerequisite unit(s) at TQA3 level, or equivalent:

  • Mathematics Methods (MTM415117)
  • Physical Sciences (PSC315109)

Mature age students/non-school leavers

You will need to meet University General Entry Requirements through alternative qualifications or experience.

You will also be required to meet the pre-requisites listed above via the completion of foundation units, or by demonstrating equivalent qualification or knowledge. Even if you don’t need to meet a prerequisite, foundation units are a great way to refresh your knowledge and give you the best preparation possible for staring your Bachelor level studies.

International Students

All international applicants will need to meet the International General Entrance Requirements.

For those applicants who are nationals of and currently residing in a country where English is NOT the official language, evidence of an IELTS or TOEFL test must be provided. The Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours requires an IELTS (Academic) of 6.0.

You will also need to meet any course specific requirements with recognised qualifications, or equivalent experience. More information is available at the International Future Students website.

Credit for appropriate studies completed at TAFE and/or other university courses may be granted. You can apply for advanced standing as part of the application process, or it can be assessed independently via a separate application.

Please contact us for further information.

If you successfully complete this course, you may be eligible to apply for a range of other postgraduate courses including Graduate Certificates and Graduate Diplomas and Masters by coursework and research. Filter the Course list on the Engineering study theme page by Postgraduate to view the current courses available.

If you meet the minimum ATAR but haven't completed the required pre-requisite unit(s), we offer foundation units to help you bridge the gap. Many run in spring and summer school so you can meet a prerequisite and not delay the start of your Bachelor level studies. HECS scholarships may also be available for domestic students.

Even if you don’t need to meet a pre-requisite, these units are a great way to refresh your knowledge and give you the best preparation possible for starting your Bachelor level studies.

If you do not meet the minimum ATAR you should consider enrolment in the Diploma of University Studies (Engineering pathway), which includes the mathematics and chemistry foundation units, as a pathway to the Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours.

If you do not meet the General Entry Requirements (GER), you should consider enrolment in the Diploma of University Studies (Engineering pathway) or the University Preparation Program.

In all cases, contact us to discuss an option best suited to your needs.
