Engineering and IT

As a professional chemical engineer, you design, operate and manage the processes that transform materials into everyday products in key areas such as oil and gas, minerals processing, plastics, food processing and pharmaceuticals manufacturing.

As a civil and structural professional engineer, you will continuously be challenging traditional construction methods with creativity and innovation helping design and manage 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 its uses and the principles of sustainability.

As a professional engineer in the electrical and electronics industry, you are responsible for the design, automation and control of the devices which make modern life convenient. You are involved in electronics, telecommunications, biomedical applications and power generation 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 are involved in the design and build of large and small devices which improve transport, and provide affordable manufacturing and production solutions. Key areas include mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines.

Your studies will provide a sound base of fundamental engineering principles, followed by advanced specialist knowledge of the theory and practice of chemical, civil and structural, electrical and electronics or mechanical engineering. The course specifically offers extensive hands on practical experience, which will help you in your future career as a professional engineer.

In addition to the specific engineering knowledge, essential engineering skills including innovation, creativity, research, management, teamwork and leadership are features of the course.

This course was developed in consultation with and is supported by industry leaders. You graduate with a sound foundation of engineering knowledge which directly aligns with international industry requirements.

Course structure

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 students for careers as professional engineers.

As well as being offered on campus for internal students, this course is also available externally by distance learning for those who are not able to attend classes on campus on a regular basis. Distance learning requires reliable broadband internet access and on campus attendance at residential sessions for one week per semester of full-time study.

A candidate must successfully complete units totalling 320 credit points (cp) as detailed below. All units are valued at 10 credit points unless indicated.

Students commencing in Summer Semester

The Recommended Study Plan provided below is suitable for a student commencing in summer semester and enrolling in a standard load. Students entering this course with advanced standing, or wishing to reduce or vary their study plan due to work, personal, financial or other reasons should use the table as a guide to create an individual study plan.

When designing an individual study plan:

  • ensure Common Units are completed in the first year of study;
  • maintain the basic order in which units are to be attempted; and
  • check the assumed knowledge for each unit as some 200 and 300 level units assume you have completed foundation unit/s in the unit area at a lower level. 200 level units have the unit code which includes a number starting with 200.
