Bachelor of Engineering - Mechanical (Honours)

The University of Adelaide

This program has a strong focus on design and hands-on experience. Students complete a design and build project in second-year, followed by a more advanced project in third-year and a large design/research project in the final year. It provides a solid foundation in core mechanical engineering disciplines, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Through the academic program students also develop written and oral communication skills and a familiarity with team work and project management. Mechanical engineering is concerned with the management of people and resources, the creation and use of new technologies and the design and development of new materials, processes and products. This mostly involves 'things that move', such as motor vehicles, aircraft systems, engines, pumps, gas turbines, industrial plants, air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, manufacturing processes, building services and even space stations.

Course Fee:


International: $168,000

Entry Requirements:

Prerequisites: SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics and Physics; International Baccalaureate: Mathematics (HL grade 3), Physics (SL grade 4/HL grade 3). If Stage 2 studies were undertaken prior to 2017, the equivalent subject was known as Mathematical Studies.

Structure:

The first 2 years of the program include mathematics, physics and an introduction to the basic principles of design, structural analysis, thermodynamics, materials, fluid mechanics, control and computer programming. This is complemented by laboratory and project work. In the third year, courses are extended to develop students' understanding in these fields. This is coupled with a design project, to prepare students for the final year. The fourth year of the degree allows for some technical specialisation. This is enabled through the completion of elective courses, in addition to project work and a management course. Students are required to complete 6 weeks of approved practical experience.
