This program helps students to develop the skills, knowledge and experience of an engineer to enable them to deliver practical solutions to real-world problems. Students can apply their knowledge through practical work experience and a final-year research project to encourage valuable industry experience in engineering. Students have the choice of a range of specialties in addition to acquiring skills in problem-solving, analysis, design, construction and management. For more program information, visit Bachelor of Engineering Honours at USQ.
