Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Aerospace)

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

Course details

CRICOS course code: 084921G

Level of study: Undergraduate

Summary

You will learn about aerodynamics, aircraft control systems, avionics navigation and communications, and specialise in the design of electronic systems for aircraft and satellite systems using systems engineering methodology. We are a major player in national avionics research and we have strong partnerships with government and industry. You'll be involved in research projects such as fixed-wing UAV and rotorcraft, aerospace vision systems, aircraft control systems and autopilot design.

Field trips provide you with a first-hand view of aerospace avionics, plus you'll interact and engage with engineers and researchers at QUT’s Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation.

Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Expand your expertise

Your study plan for this specialisation includes the choice of a second study area.

Electrical and aerospace engineering involves design, development, manufacture and maintenance work on the electronic systems of military and civilian aeroplanes, helicopters, spacecraft, satellites and uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs). If you are interested in how things work, space and flight, technology, electronics and aircraft systems, an electrical and aerospace career could be for you.

Explore your options

Your engineering degree features common units in the first year that combine broad foundation principles with a wide range of major choices, giving you flexibility and options before you choose your career specialisation.
