Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Control and Instrumentation) and Bachelor of Information Technology (Application Development)
CQUniversity - Online

Course outline

Become a control and instrumentation engineer skilled in both high-level engineering design, and software and hardware implementation of engineering systems. Throughout the course, students will develop skills in problem solving, teamwork and professional practice together with learning foundational technical content. Students will complete a major individual project that integrates both control and instrumentation knowledge and information and communication technology knowledge to confirm their ability to work as a control and instrumentation, and software engineer. This course has a strong focus on learning in context so students will apply theory to authentic scenarios throughout the course.
