Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
Griffith University - Gold Coast

Course outline

This is your chance to make an impact on the way the world works. You could have the opportunity to make your mark on major global systems and infrastructure, or be at the forefront of localised urban projects. When you choose this degree, you’ll be engineering from day one. This degree has a major focus on learning by doing, with hands-on projects from first year. You’ll study a range of engineering areas before choosing from one of nine major areas of engineering to specialise in from your second year. This will distinguish you from other graduates in the marketplace and give you the chance to develop skills particular to your interests. You’ll learn from experts who are part of cutting-edge research being conducted alongside government and leading industry partners. Entering your final year, you’ll undertake a workplacement with one of our industry partners here, or overseas. With internationally recognised qualifications and world-class facilities, Griffith is the ideal place to study engineering.
