Bachelor Of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical)
Application deadlines: November 15, April 15
Intakes: February, July
International tuition: A$34,400
Domestic tuition: A$9,359
Mechanical engineering is a diverse field that can be applied right across industry – from robotics and automation to manufacturing, automotive and energy. In this degree students will learn to engineer solutions to everyday challenges and discover the latest in machinery design, manufacturing technologies and sustainable energy usage. Students will work on a major industry project in their final year. There will be many opportunities to learn by practical example, with guest lecturers from industry, simulated business environments and site visits to industrial facilities. Students will also do a 12-week work placement.

Careers to consider: Mechanical engineer: developing products from small parts to large plant, machinery or vehicles; can work on all stages of a product such as research, development, design, manufacture and installation. Industrial engineer: working to eliminate wastefulness in production processes; develops systems, facilities and equipment that increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve quality and safety. Mechanical engineering supervisor: overseeing the design of mechanical equipment, industrial processes and robotics; supervising the production, operation, repair and maintenance of equipment; managing staff, resources and work processes. Hydraulics engineer: focusing on fluid mechanics – the motion, control and storage of water and sewage; designs and develops structures and facilities, such as canals, rivers, dams, reservoirs and water treatment plants; works on large scale issues such as power generation, flood control and access to drinking water. Mechanical designer: creating machines, products, and new technologies; using computer aided design software (CAD) and tools; understanding of drafting practices and standards relevant to their industry and products.
