Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

University of Southern Queensland USQ

During the first year of study, students will experience all areas of the engineering field to allow them to take charge of their own career. This program will then allow students to undertake an in depth study of either agricultural, civil, computer systems, electrical and electronic, environmental, instrumentation control and automation, mechanical, mechatronic, power engineering. Students can apply their knowledge through practical work experience and an exciting final year research project that will give them hands-on industry experience. Graduates may apply for chartered status as a Professional Engineer and also have the opportunity to work overseas, with the accreditation recognised in the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, Ireland, Hong Kong, New Zealand and South Africa.
