What will I learn?

This is your chance to have an impact on the way the world works. You could have the opportunity to make your mark on major global systems and infrastructure or be at the forefront of localised urban projects. When you choose this degree, you'll be engineering from day one.

In your first year, you'll develop a strong foundation in basic science and engineering principles. You'll study a range of engineering areas, letting you decide which area interests you the most. We're strong believers in `learning by doing', so this degree has a strong practical focus. You'll learn from teachers who are passionate about engineering and the difference it makes in the world, so you'll get to experience their energy in your studies.

Industry and expert connections

In your second year you'll choose your preferred major so you can focus on the area you feel passionate about. Learning from industry kicks into another gear, and you'll participate in genuine engineering projects. You'll also hear from the very best, with guest lecturers explaining their vision and the results of significant projects. You'll have direct access to them for questions and advice as part of our smaller more personalised experience.

Entering your final year, you'll take your skills and work with one of our industry partners here or overseas, undertaking a trimester-long project through our capstone Industry Affiliates Program.
