Area of study
Engineering and IT

As a professional chemical engineer, 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 pharmaceuticals manufacturing.

As a professional civil and structural engineer, you will continuously be challenging traditional civil and construction methods with creativity and innovation to help design and manage structures for the modern world. Key areas include structures, water resources, roads and traffic, bridges and marine structures.

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 transportation, provide affordable manufacturing and production solutions. Key areas include mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines. Special emphasis is placed on the themes of sustainability, creativity, teamwork, design and leadership.

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

Special emphasis is placed on the themes of sustainability, creativity, teamwork, design, research and leadership.

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.
