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.
