Level of study: Undergraduate
What to expect
Build a thorough understanding of engineering fundamentals in your first year. Deepen your knowledge and focus on theoretical and practical learning. You will study a specialised major plus one minor.
Gain hands-on skills through laboratory classes and field trips. Participate in twelve weeks of work placements with industry partners - you may have the opportunity for paid work experience.
Studies culminate in the fourth year with an Honours component - a major engineering project and thesis. You will research a current industry issue and work towards designing a solution.
Become a world-class engineer. JCU engineering graduates are innovative problem solvers, creative designers and applied scientists involved in a variety of industries.
You can choose from five different Engineering majors. The electronic systems and internet of things major is only available at the Cairns campus while all other majors are only available at the Townsville campus.
Create, manipulate and design products using raw materials, and chemistry and physics principles. Become an expert in the intricacies of reactor design and modelling, and learn how to comprehend the concepts of instrumental analysis. Build an in-depth understanding of advanced chemical technologies such as minerals processing, extractive metallurgy and bioprocessing.
Benefit from JCU’s expert lecturers and explore various civil engineering disciplines such as structural, hydraulic, geotechnical, transport and environmental engineering. Develop the skills required to assess the environmental impact of large projects and understand how to build community engagement. JCU graduates have a thorough understanding of how to make cities better places to live.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Learn how to design and maintain electrical energy infrastructure through the application of the electrical principles. You will integrate theory with practice and visit telecommunications companies, power utilities and mines. Build a comprehensive knowledge of electrical materials, circuit theory, single phase and three phase power system modelling and signal processing.
Electronic Systems and Internet of Things (IoT) Engineering
Develop sensor technologies, analyse big data and design smart technology that relates to various industries. Work with cloud computing and wireless communication utilising a state-of-the-art Internet of Things research lab. Become innovative technology leaders, accessing world-class lecturers and their strong industry partnerships.
Understand the principles of mechanics and thermodynamics to analyse, design, manufacture and maintain machines across almost all industries. Learn the foundations of thermofluid mechanics and the dynamics of machine elements. Through experiential learning, apply your understanding of heat exchange, momentum and strength of materials to design machines.
An Honours degree supports entry into a Higher Degree by Research. High-achieving graduates of this course can enrol in this extra year and further develop critical thinking skills through completion of a research project and thesis.
