Engineering courses

Undergraduate degrees

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Civil Engineering (option to major in Environmental Engineering) - Engineers are key to solving problems and designing solutions for our future, whilst embracing the laws of nature and societal needs. The Civil Engineering degree offers a strong grounding in structural, water/wastewater, geotechnical, transportation and construction engineering disciplines. 

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering - Whether you are interested in product design, robotics, energy planning, pollution control or acoustics, a Mechanical Engineering degree will put you at the forefront of new technologies.


Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Coastal Systems Engineering - NEW TO 2018 - For millennia humans have made their homes on the coast, which is a rich source of food, trade, and transport. How will we meet the challenge of using this environment and reduce the impacts of human activity in a time of climate change?

Our engineering programs are developed to be academically rigorous and industry relevant. The Civil and mechanical engineering degrees hold provisional accreditation with Engineers Australia, whilst provisional accreditation will be sought for the coastal systems engineering degree.

Students are encouraged to join Engineers Australia as Student Members at no cost and can enjoy the rich variety of material and experiences on offer.

Teaching is delivered in the new science and engineering precinct at the Lismore campus, providing students with world class facilities equipped with state-of-the-art research and teaching equipment.

Students are required to gain essential industry experience throughout their engineering degree to prepare for employment after graduation.  Practical hands-on experience is also enhanced by field trips within the region and laboratory experiments.

Postgraduate degrees

The Master of Engineering Management (MEM) is offered online. This course prepares students for a managerial position through strategic asset management planning, commercial research and development processes, economic viability, new product development and commercialisation.

The Master of Engineering Management, Master of Business Administration (MEM, MBA) combined degree is offered at the Gold Coast campus. This course is for students who have an undergraduate degree in engineering and who want to develop both their management and engineering skills through a combination of two postgraduate awards.
