Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Honours)
UniSC - University of the Sunshine Coast - Sunshine Coast

Course outline

Make things happen. Mechanical engineers design, build and maintain complex machines and mechanical
systems from the very small to the very large scale. Learn the finer points of engineering and machine
design, fluid mechanics, and production engineering which will enable you to make systems and machinery for diverse industries from transport to medical devices.

In this program you will learn to use mathematical and scientific principles to solve a range of technical problems. You’ll get hands-on experience through 12 weeks of work experience while you experience a broad array of courses covering areas like design, sustainability, modelling and management and leadership. You’ll get to manage a major final-year research project on a topic of your choice and learn from industry professionals through guest lectures that expose you to current engineering professional practice.
