Area of study
Engineering and IT

As a chemical engineering technologist, you design, operate and manage the processes that transform materials into everyday products. You are involved in key areas such as oil and gas refining, minerals processing, plastics, food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

As a civil and structural engineering technologist, you will continuously be challenging traditional construction methods with creativity and innovation helping design and maintain structures for the modern world. Key areas include structures, water resources, roads and traffic, bridges and marine structures. 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 an engineering technologist 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.

As a mechanical engineering technologist, you are involved in the design and build of large and small devices which improve transportation, 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 specialist knowledge of the theory and practice of chemical, civil and structural, electrical and electronics and mechanical engineering. The course specifically offers extensive hands on practical experience, which will help you in your future career as an engineering technologist.

In addition to the specific engineering knowledge, essential engineering skills including innovation, creativity, management and teamwork 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.

You can combine this course with the two-year Master of Engineering as an accredited pathway towards becoming a professional engineer. This pathway is similar to engineering programs offered in Europe and is an alternative to the traditional four-year Bachelor of Engineering Honours course.

Professional recognition

EUR-ACE

The Bachelor of Engineering Science is accredited internationally to European EUR-ACE requirements.

ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA

The Bachelor of Engineering Science (Civil and Structural) is accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of engineering technologist and therefore recognised internationally under the Sydney Accord.

The Bachelor of Engineering Science (Chemical), Bachelor of Engineering Science (Electrical and Electronics), and Bachelor of Engineering Science (Mechanical) are provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of engineering technologist. Note: Engineers Australia initially gives provisional accreditation for new engineering courses - full accreditation can only be obtained after the first students have graduated.

Assumed knowledge

Stage 2 Mathematical Methods or equivalent.

Admission requirements

Admission requirements are met by one of the following:

  • Successful completion of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (or equivalent) and the awarding of an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of at least 60*.

Course structure

This three year course consists of 24 coursework units and one work experience unit.

The first year of study introduces basic engineering skills common to all specialisations. In subsequent years students follow a study path specifically developed for their area of specialisation.

This course is 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 240 credit points (cp) as detailed below. All units are valued at 10 credit points unless indicated.

Recommended Study Plans for 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.
Legend: CU = Common Unit CO = Core Unit SE = Specialist Elective
