Due to the circumstances around COVID-19, you will begin your studies online. However, when Government guidelines change, on-campus studies will be reintroduced.
This degree provides you the option to combine specialisations from science and engineering to create a truly customised degree that delivers a powerful blend of knowledge and skills.

If you enjoy pursuing your curiosity and understanding the world around you, consider yourself an innovator, and are passionate about shaping the world from our living laboratory, our science majors provides a gateway to an exciting world of immersive learning and discovery.

This combines perfectly with your choice of engineering specialisations, are you learn to be a collaborator who balances creative design, analysis and applied science to design, build and manage structures, machines, manufacturing processes and infrastructure.

You will learn how to cross disciplines, and borders, embracing the challenge of creating the world of tomorrow.

Tasmania is literally a living laboratory

The University of Tasmania has with six diverse ecosystems all within 30 minutes of the Sandy Bay campus, and the world’s second largest temperate rainforest only an hour away. We’re the gateway to Antarctica and, as the birthplace of the green movement, celebrate our biodiversity and environmental sustainability. Your proximity to a wide range of pristine, diverse environments, and the researchers who travel from around the world to work in them, give you unparalleled practical field experience while you study, plus it makes Tasmania an amazing place to live!

Immerse yourself in our specialist facilities

The University of Tasmania is the only University in the world to directly control a continental-scale array of world-class radio telescopes. Our researchers, your lecturers, use these in both national and international collaborations including with SpaceX and NASA. Depending on your area of study, even as an undergraduate you can have direct access as part of your studies, literally driving them yourself as you test theories and explore the Universe.

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
Practical experience through specialist laboratories

Several specialist labs operate on-campus that have direct links to industry, delivering real-world practical experience and networking opportunities. The Molecular Genetics Laboratory has contributed to a range of projects in conjunction with CRC Forestry, Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute, Australian Antarctic Division, Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies, and CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research.

Formula SAE and the UTAS motorsport team

The Formula SAE Competition is a national motorsport 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, in particular as they have transitioned to racing electric vehicles.

Overseas study experiences

Our international exchange programs offers you the chance to gain amazing global experiences while you study, with opportunities ranging from two-week study tours, to semester exchanges at partner universities around the world.

We’re here to help you every step of the way, including offering a range of scholarships and financial assistance options. You may also be eligible for OS-HELP Loans or scholarship funding to assist with airfares, accommodation and other expenses.

Find out more by visiting the Student Mobility website.

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 modern economy relies heavily on skilled individuals in the fields of science, engineering and technology. As a result, a combined science and engineering degree delivers a powerful combination of practical skills and knowledge that is highly respected by employers.

If you're not sure where your degree might take you, don't worry! Many students start studying a combined science and engineering degree because they have multiple passions they want to follow, and don't know exactly where they will end up. During your studies, you will meet other students, academics and visiting lecturers, all of whom may spark an idea of where your particular blend of options could take you.

Career Opportunities with Science and Engineering

While career options are wide and varied, they typically fall into three main categories:

  • Specialist knowledge related to your combination of specialisations
  • Careers where a broad understanding of science is essential (e.g., teacher, journalism, policy advisor).
  • Careers using generic skills obtained during your degree (e.g., public relations, business manager, marketing, government and local councils).

At the University of Tasmania, in addition to specialised scientific knowledge and skills, our focus is on giving you the practical and professional skills that are highly sought after by all employers – creative problem-solving, working in a team environment and flexibility of thinking. We teach you how to think, not what to think.

A career in science and engineering can be in any industry on earth. It will come to where your passion takes you.

Professional Recognition

The Bachelor of Engineering component of this combined degree is a professionally accredited degree.

Accreditation by Engineers Australia, and subsequent recognition by the internationally accepted Washington Accord, means your degree provides truly global qualifications. Your skills will be valued and recognised around the world including New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Korea, Japan, China, South Africa, Ireland, Turkey and Russia.

The Civil, Mechanical, Electronics and Communications, and Electrical Power specialisations all have full accreditation. Provisional accreditation has been granted for the new specialisation, Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In line with Engineers Australia requirements, the University will apply for full accreditation when sufficient students have graduated with this specialisation.

If you have any questions about the accreditation process, please contact us for further information.
