First year indicative tuition fees for undergraduate courses (domestic students)

You are viewing indicative tuition fee information for domestic students. If you are an international student click here to calculate indicative tuition fees for your course.

We are unable to display fee information for the selected course at this time. Please visit our Fees Calculator to view the cost of undergraduate courses and units. Indicative tuition fee information for WAAPA VET courses can also be viewed on the Fees Calculator.

Two kinds of domestic tuition fees are explained below. Identify which indicative domestic tuition fee may be applicable to you.

Commonwealth Supported Place

Under this arrangement, the Australian Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the remaining tuition fees, called your 'student contribution'.

You are eligible to be Commonwealth Supported if you are studying:

  • a Bachelor's degree;
  • an Associate Diploma;
  • an Honours degree; or
  • selected Commonwealth Government Supported postgraduate courses.

You must also satisfy ONE of the following criteria:

  • You are an Australian Citizen.
  • You hold a Permanent Humanitarian visa.
  • You are a New Zealand Citizen and you are living in Australia whilst studying.
  • You hold an Australian Permanent Residency visa and you are living in Australia whilst studying.

Please note that eligibility for a Commonwealth Supported rate of fees does not determine your eligibility for a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) loan. For further details and to obtain a more comprehensive indication of fees, please use the Fees Calculator.

Domestic Tuition Fee

Domestic tuition fees (unsubsidised full fee amount) will be applicable to you if you are not eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place.

Domestic tuition fees also apply to non-award courses (courses or programs that do not lead to a higher education award, but are studied for general interest, professional purposes, or to gain entry to a degree program through an alternative pathway). More about non-award courses.

Course Main Navigation

 

Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical)

This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

The course consists of a 480 credit points 30 core units, two electives and one 0 credit point practicum unit).

Students may include a specialist stream in Motorsports in their degree by making the following unit selections/substitutions:

Standard Unit

Replace With Unit

Elective 1

ENM1101: Race Car Anatomy

Elective 2

ENM2214: Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing

ENS3220 Electrical Machines and Transformers

ENM2209: Race Car Systems

 

These unit selections will prepare students to undertake a motorsports/automotive oriented final year engineering project if they so wish.

Students wanting to take this optional Motorsports stream should consult with the Course Coordinator before commencing studies. The Course Coordinator will advise them on the sequence and timing of the elective and other units in their course to accommodate the inclusion of the motorsports units.
