Meeting the future needs and challenges of sustainability will require a comprehensive design approach, focusing on whole-of-system requirements, and an understanding of lifecycle.
You'll take a systems approach to engineer the best possible sustainable solutions that present leading business opportunities.
In the final year of your studies, you'll undertake a major project that is either industry-based or simulates an industrial situation. You’ll combine and further develop the key theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for your field - as defined by Engineers Australia - while you work with industry leaders to solve a project challenge.
Before graduating from this degree, you are strongly encouraged to complete a minimum 12 weeks of engineering industry experience. This allows you to gain first-hand experience in an engineering practice environment under the supervision of a practising professional engineer. The nature and timing of this engineering experience can take a range of forms.
Opportunities exist for an overseas work placement of between six and 12 months (this satisfies the work experience recommendation). These placements are normally taken during a one-year break in the middle or at the end of the third year of the degree.
