Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Master of Engineering
The University of Queensland - St Lucia

Course outline

As part of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Master of Engineering program, you’ll be challenged to push the boundaries of the discipline while you develop high-level skills in critical and analytical thinking, research design and project management, and graduate fully prepared for the workforce through this specialised undergraduate and postgraduate program. You’ll undertake a full-time placement with industry or a research institution either in Australia or overseas, and complete advanced coursework and project work in your final year. You’ll also undertake a supervised master’s thesis on a relevant topic and be involved with all aspects of research, including defining a research question, establishing a methodology and reporting on your findings. This integrated program provides the engineering qualifications to set you apart in the job market and a pathway to future research or learning.
