The future of engineering is changing. And so are we.

We’ve been busy reimagining the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and have crafted a new curriculum that will place you at the forefront of engineering in 2024, 2034 and beyond.

You’ll benefit from a new flexible first year with hands-on experiences across all aspects of engineering, more study options for greater career opportunities, and direct contact with industry – your future employers – threaded throughout your degree.

You’ll develop technical skills through a core specialisation, which will form the basis of your career. Choose from either chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronic engineering or software engineering.

You’ll also have the option to complement your engineering specialisation with a major or minor in one of the new and emerging areas of engineering. Our broad range of majors allows you to further tailor your studies to match your career aspirations and deep dive into your interests.

Not sure what you want to study? No worries – our flexible first year allows you to try out introductory courses from our 6 core specialisations to see what you like best. Or, if you prefer, you can enrol directly in your chosen study area from day one.

You'll graduate with a respected honours qualification, with advanced knowledge and skills that will set you apart in a competitive job market, prove your leadership potential and provide a pathway to future research or learning.

No matter which path you choose, you'll be prepared for the jobs of the future.
