Bachelor of Engineering Science/Master of Engineering - HENG01 - 2018

Course overview

The Bachelor of Engineering Science/Master of Engineering is the two part pathway which is internationally accredited to European EUR-ACE requirements and also by Engineers Australia at professional engineer level. The Bachelor of Engineering Science allows you to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to then progress into the Masters of Engineering. Within the Masters component of this course you complete further theory relevant to your specialisation and develop a research thesis.

There are four areas of specialisation you can 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.
