Bachelor of Engineering Honours - VENG01 - 2018

Course overview

There are four areas of specialisation to choose from, as outlined below.

Chemical engineering

Chemical engineers design and operate the processes involved in transforming raw materials into usable products. Key areas include oil and gas refining, minerals processing, plastics, food processing and pharmaceuticals manufacturing.

Civil and structural engineering

Civil engineers design, construct and manage the systems and infrastructure of modern life, for example, water resources, roads and traffic, bridges and marine structures.

Electrical and electronics engineering

This is a rapidly developing area that covers the design, automation and control of the devices, which make our modern life convenient. Typical examples are electronics, telecommunications, biomedical applications and power generation and distribution, including renewable energy.

Mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineers design and construct both large and small devices that enable rapid and convenient transportation, cost effective manufacturing processes and quality fabrication in specific areas such as mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines.

These four-year courses (or part-time equivalent) cover in year one the same broad engineering foundation subjects. In years two and three, you acquire skills in your specialised area, and in your final year, you will design a project, study higher-level units and submit a research thesis.

This degree will allow you to become a graduate member of Engineers Australia at professional engineer level.
