Bachelor Of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical And Advanced Manufacturing)
Application deadlines: November 15, April 15
Intakes: February, July
International tuition: A$34,400
Domestic tuition: A$9,359
Mechanical engineers in the manufacturing sector use a broad range of skills, like information and communication technology (ICT), electronics, and new organisational practices. In this degree students will apply engineering theory to real-world challenges. They will work on a major industry project in their final year, and study advanced courses in mechatronics. As well as a 12-week work placement, there will be lots of opportunities to learn by practical example, with guest lecturers from industry, simulated business environments and site visits to industrial facilities. This university is ranked number one in South Australia for engineering research. Its leading researchers will be students' teachers and everything they learn will be supported by research excellence.
