This course prepares students for a diverse career as a professional engineer. Students have a choice of majors in traditional engineering disciplines as well as dual major options that will prepare them for emerging specialist fields of engineering including civil with humanitarian engineering, electrical with data analytics, electrical with information processing, electrical with industrial automation, and mechanical with industrial automation. This course develops students’ problem-solving, teamwork and communication skills and incorporates project-based learning so they can graduate work ready. The first year of study allows students to experience engineering projects from different disciplines which will assist them in deciding which engineering discipline and course major they wish to pursue. For more course information, visit Bachelor of Engineering (Honours).
Some units will have a compulsory residential schools for students who study online. These residential schools give students an opportunity to develop and demonstrate practical skills. The Engineers Australia accreditation guidelines recommend minimum of 40 days of on-campus experience for a professional engineering course offered in distance mode.
