Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical)
Mechanical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, manufacture and maintenance of mechanical components and moving systems.
Areas of study within the Mechanical Engineering course include a foundation in physical and engineering sciences along with engineering mechanics, computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing, advanced engineering materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, control systems, heating & cooling systems and project management.
Students will graduate with competencies in all major areas of mechanical engineering and be able to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects.
The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects.
Students taking this course also have the option to undertake a specialist stream in Motorsports. This option provides a special focus on automotive design and motorsports engineering.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
Additional Course Information
During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).
Engineers Australia has granted accreditation to this course.
Mechanical engineers have diverse employment opportunities in most sectors of industry including product design and development, manufacturing, road and transport, mining and resource, public utilities, agriculture, defence, aerospace and consulting.
Students whose performance over the four years of the course is of a high standard may be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree.
Engineering / Business, Engineering / Laws and Engineering / Science double degrees are also available in this discipline.
Applicants who do not meet the mathematics prerequisite for this course should consider applying for the Bachelor of Technology (Electronic and Computer Systems) or the Bachelor of Technology (Motorsports) as a pathway.
