The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering equips students with the relevant skills and knowledge to provide a range of professional mechanical engineering services in regional, national and international environments. The course prepares graduates for work involving the design of machinery, water supply, vibration, acoustics and noise control, robotics, heat transfer and refrigeration, energy technology, consumer product design, pollution control, and production planning.
The course is structured around the 16 competencies identified by Engineers Australia as being essential to the graduating engineer. These competencies are broadly grouped into: knowledge and skills, application, personal and professional skills.
Throughout the course, students develop core theoretical knowledge and skills vital to the engineering profession and the ability to apply these in the most relevant software applications.
