About this program

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) has a strong focus on learning in context so you will apply theory to authentic scenarios throughout your course.

In your first year, you will develop skills in problem-solving, teamwork and professional practice together with learning foundation technical content. In Term 2 of Year 1, you will undertake an authentic industry project with work-integrated learning. By the end of first year, you will have experienced engineering projects from different disciplines which will assist you to decide which engineering discipline you wish to pursue: civil, electrical, mechanical, mechatronics or mining.

Second year is all about gaining in-depth discipline-specific knowledge and skills. Your exposure to projects will continue, which will give you opportunities to apply the theoretical knowledge you have gained to deliver tangible engineering outcomes.

In the third and fourth years of your course, you will develop a deeper understanding of the foundation knowledge that you gained in first and second year. In some units, you will explore specific aspects of your discipline. You will also complete 3 project units where you will work on authentic projects, sometimes with an industry mentor. In the civil, electrical and mechanical majors, you will have the opportunity to choose electives that will enhance your career prospects in your chosen field. Finally, you will complete a major individual project to confirm your ability to work as a professional engineer.

This course is available in on-campus and mixed mode, giving you the flexibility to study even if working or living in a remote location.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) may also be used as an alternative entry pathway to Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-op Engineering) for students who do not meet the entry requirements for that course.
