What will I learn?

Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design, manufacture, and operational processes of anything that moves, from the tiniest, simplest micro-particles to the largest, most complex spacecraft and everything in between. As a mechanical engineer, you have a skill set that is applicable to many industries in the world, including automotive, transport, manufacturing, power generation, medical, consumer goods, and more. This practical qualification will ensure you graduate job-ready as a mechanical engineering technologist. Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest mechanical engineering technologies.

Program Details

Mechanical engineering is the field of engineering that applies physics and the material sciences to develop machinery. Mechanical engineers use the principles of force, energy, and motion to improve the safety, efficiency, and technological advancement of the world around us.

With this qualification, you will have acquired the essential knowledge which underpins both this and other fields of engineering. More importantly, you will have become a mechanical engineering technologist.

Program Structure

The degree consists of a combination of core units, sub-discipline specific ‘stream’ units, industrial work experience, and a final year project. The program duration is three years full-time. We deliver units over two semesters per year, and you will take 4.5 units per semester. There will be a short mid-semester break and extended breaks between semesters.
