Engineers are people with inquiring minds who love to problem-solve, create, refine and build.

They balance creative design, analysis and applied science to design, build and manage structures, machines, manufacturing processes and infrastructure. They are involved in key decisions of almost every industry, including the construction of buildings, roads and major infrastructure projects, product development, electronics and transport.

A practical, hands-on study experience

Engineering is an applied discipline. To prepare you for your future career, we offer an educational experience with significant practical experiences from day one, right up to graduation. Your teachers are all active researchers and as we're Tasmania's premier engineering research organisation, that means our long standing industry connections and active, applied research are brought to your classes and conducted in your labs, giving you first-hand experience with the demands of industry.

UTAS Engineering degrees are accredited (fully for established degrees and provisionally for new degrees) by Engineers Australia, and recognised internationally by the Washington Accord. This means when you study with us, you get qualifications that can take you anywhere.

Visit the Engineering study area page to explore our study options.

Things always needs to be built, made and designed. Even with the rapid advance of technology, the need will always be there. We never want to stand still, so no matter what gets developed, we always want to go further.

– Jake Hearn, Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
