Course overview

Are you curious about our world and what makes it work? This degree will prepare you to solve the biggest challenges facing civil  and mechanical engineering.

The Bachelor of Engineering Systems (Honours) is designed to meet the requirements for accreditation at the level of Professional Engineer by Engineers Australia. Foundational core units build knowledge of the basic sciences, and the processes and philosophy that underpin the engineering profession.

You’ll then choose a specialisation to build discipline knowledge and technical skills in your chosen area with a strong emphasis on project-based learning.

The final year of the course contains a mixture of advanced core units and advanced discipline-specific units that are designed to build skills in independent investigation, critical thinking, creative problem solving, and ethical and professional behaviour. A 60-day professional placement ensures you are ready to hit the ground running as a graduate.

The course is structured around 16 key 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.
