Undergraduate Degree

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) – Mechanical Engineering

The conception, design, manufacturing, maintenance and management of systems, ranging from micromechanical devices through to massive power-generating turbines, are all within the scope of mechanical engineering.

Modern air and ground transport systems, and thermal power generation are a few key examples of mechanical engineering accomplishments. Mechanical engineering is one of the classic engineering disciplines, understood and recognised all around the world. It is also one of the broadest engineering disciplines, meaning that as a graduate of this course, you will have developed versatile skills that will suit many areas of employment.

This course is fundamentally oriented to provide learning and skills development opportunities with hands-on experience. You will learn how to apply your knowledge and skills to invent or develop solutions to a wide range of exciting and challenging problems in industry. In your final year you will undertake an individual design/research project. You will also complete at least 480 hours of engineering work experience in order to graduate.
