Bachelor of Engineering - Electrical and Sports Engineering (Honours)

Victoria University (VU)

Students will contribute to the latest arenas where technological innovation is the key to winning! The Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Sport) degree answers the industry's latest demand for electrical engineers that understand human user requirements, can design next generation electronic solutions for sports and health applications, and can confidently analyse data to provide the winning edge. Graduates of this course are professional Electrical Engineers who may find careers in traditional electrical engineering areas such as (not limited to) the design and manage communications infrastructure (telephones, radio, TV and the Internet); design and program microprocessor based embedded systems for use within a wide range of applications and industries; manage large industrial manufacturing plants, substations, and electricity generation and distribution; design solutions for power distribution, management and smart networks. A passion for sports and healthcare and degree specialization would allow students to work in areas such as - design electronic solutions required by sports applications; design wearable electronic systems for sports and health, and; analyse data generated by real time systems. This degree program encourages students to strongly engage with our industry network of local and international academic institutions (US, UK, France, Germany and China), local sports associations (Australian Institute of Sports, Victorian Institute of Sports) and local sports businesses e.g. Racesafe Australia, Ventou Sports, and Autocoach Pty Ltd. Engagement will be in the form of projects embedded throughout the course, final year capstone projects and work experience/internships. International study tours are frequently undertaken for local students to go overseas and participate in a 2-3 week workshop focused on specific engineering problems.

Victoria University is the only university in Australia to use the block teaching model, which has been in operation throughout Sweden and parts of North America for more than four decades.

First-year and second-year students at Victoria University complete one subject every four weeks, are assessed, and then proceed to the next four-week unit. Immersion in each subject allows students to master it, rather than juggling four units at once. From 2020, all students will be taught in this way.

Victoria University is one of only six Australian universities to combine higher education and vocational and further education with its Victoria University Polytechnic, which is based on multiple university campuses. The Polytechnic creates pathways direct to the workforce or to university degrees.

VU College offers English language courses, pathway diplomas and courses for international students at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses as well as offshore with international education partners.
