The Bachelor of Engineering Honours will provide you with an advanced conceptual understanding of the science and its application to engineering, followed by an advanced specialist knowledge of the theory and practice of civil andstructural, electrical and electronics, or mechanical engineering.The course will help you to develop skills for the planning and execution of engineering projects or research to advance the scientific basis of the discipline.The course specifically offers you hands-on practical experience, which will assist you in your future career as a professional engineer. This course also focuses on essential engineering skills including innovation, creativity, research, management, teamwork and leadership.This course was developed in consultation with and is supported by, industry leaders. You graduate with the foundation of engineering knowledge which directly aligns with international industry requirements.As a professional civil and structural engineer, you will be able to combine traditional and current construction methods with creativity and innovation, including the design and management of structures for the modern world. Your studies will focus on developing sustainable and ethical civil and structural solutions in areas such as structural engineering, water and roads, and traffic, and their uses and principles of sustainability.As a professional electrical and electronics engineer, you will be able to fulfil major roles in the design, automation and control of devices which make modern life convenient. You will be involved in electronics, telecommunications, biomedical applications and power generation, storage and distribution, including renewable energy. You will develop skills in communication methods, electronic control systems and power engineering, together with a background of sustainable engineering principles.As a professional mechanical engineer, you will be able to have a major role in the design and construction of equipment for improved transport, and to provide affordable manufacturing and production solutions for the manufacturing industry. Key areas include biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps, pipelines and air conditioning systems.


The first year of study introduces foundation engineering skills common to and necessary for all areas of engineering. This provides a broad background useful for all students, before they go on to specialise in their chosen area of engineering. Subsequent years build on the foundation of the first year to provide specific learning appropriate to the chosen specialisation. The final year includes a design project and a thesis, both of which are capstone units intended to bring together all the learning of the previous years and prepare you for a career as a professional engineer.A feature of the program is twelve weeks of industrial work experience, ensuring that you are familiar with current engineering practice and begin to create your network of engineering contacts for future employment. This course is available externally by distance learning if you are not able to attend classes on campus on a regular basis. Access to the internet is required for distance learning, with access to high speed broadband highly recommended.
