Engineering & Technology at ECU

Our School of Engineering is one of the fastest-growing engineering schools in Australia and in the world's top 250. It's a place where you'll experience world-class engineering facilities in a supportive learning environment.

And you'll gain valuable practical experience in our advanced labs and workshops, and during a 12-week industry placement.

Why ECU?


Our courses are developed and delivered in close consultation with industry. As well as spending time in lectures and labs, your engineering course will involve at least 12 weeks of practical work experience in the engineering industry. This is a great way to kick-start your career.

Courses have a common multi-disciplinary first year and most have been professionally accredited by Engineers Australia and recognised under the Washington Accord. This means your engineering qualification will be internationally recognised. You’ll be world ready.

Study areas, degrees and majors

At ECU, we group similar fields of work into study areas – Engineering and Technology is one of them.

Within each study area you can choose a degree, for example a Bachelor of Engineering or a Bachelor of Technology.

For some degrees, like a Bachelor of Technology, you can choose a speciality, or major, like Aeronautical, Electronic and Computer Systems or Motorsports.

We also offer Engineering Honours degrees in Civil, Chemical, Mechanical and other disciplines.

And postgraduate degrees are available through coursework or research. For example, you can study our Research Master's degree for a Master of Engineering Science
