Study options in this degree

Civil engineers focus on designing, planning and constructing the world we live in, both above and below the ground. Projects include dams, bridges, pipelines, gas and water supply schemes, sewerage systems, roads, airports, and structures across all scales, including residential buildings.

Our world is more connected than ever, and electronics and communications engineers are designing, creating and maintaining the infrastructure that enables that global connectivity. They design and maintain networks, control automatic and robotic autonomous vehicles and small devices. They also help improve quality of life around the world, creating bionic ears, pacemakers, life support systems and other biomedical devices.

Electrical power engineers manage projects across the generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation of electrical energy. They are currently reinventing the world’s energy systems, working across a scale that crosses continents. In local communities, delivering reliable, sustainable power can tackle poverty and save lives.

Mechanical engineers are involved in mechanical design, manufacture, assembly, commissioning, maintenance, safety, management, and development of policies within vast global sectors including energy, transportation, manufacturing, and automation. The largest and most complicated machines on the planet, from ships and aircraft to highly technical mechatronics and automation, need the skills and knowledge of a mechanical engineer.

Other study options

Choosing a double degree allows you to deepen your knowledge within two separate study areas. The Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours in Engineering provides you the option to combine specialisations from science and engineering to create a truly customised degree.

Whether you want to transition into a new specialisation, or update your qualification to meet Australian industry requirements, this postgraduate engineering course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to reach your career goals in this evolving industry.

If you already have a bachelor's degree in engineering or another technical discipline (such as mathematics, chemistry, physics, or economics),  you may be eligible to enrol in a Master of Professional Engineering and become a fully qualified engineer after a minimum of 2 years of study.

In addition to the engineering specialisations above, you may also wish to look at our Maritime Engineering study options.

Career opportunities

Engineers are in high demand around the world, and our graduates have built well paid, interesting, and engaging careers across government, private companies, industry, and consulting firms. After starting in technical positions, engineers often move into management roles within companies and organisations due to their organisational and analytical skills.

You can be involved in making key decisions across almost every industry, including the construction of buildings, roads and major infrastructure projects, alternative energy system development, electronics and transport, biomedical implants and many more. You’ll balance contemporary thinking, creative design, critical analysis, and applied science and technology to solve problems in almost every aspect of our lives.

According to the National Skills Commission projected employment growth November 2020 and projections to November 2025, here are some of the top careers projected to grow in the next five years.

Hydro Energy in Tasmania - A Renewable Engineering Project by James Beattie

Student experience

Renewable Engineering

"As a civil engineering student, doing a project that has a link to industry but also to be involved in a renewable project is really beneficial. When you are doing the work you an actually see how that applies to the real world".

James Beattie has been awarded the W.A. Cromarty & Co. Renewable Energy Prize for his research into ‘Dynamic loading of side spillway chutes.


The Sir William Tyree Engineering Scholarship is a prestigious scholarship to assist students from regional Australia to pursue their dream of obtaining an engineering qualification, in the face of financial and other challenges with $15,000 per year for up to four years.

This is just one of the scholarships and support packages on offer in 2022.
