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:
Replace With Unit
ENM1101: Race Car Anatomy
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.
