A practical focus combined with strong industry links ensures graduates from this course are job-ready.
You’ll be provided with multiple opportunities for experiential learning including a design, build, and fly challenge for micro-aerial vehicles (MAVs), an Engineers Without Borders challenge, and other technical problem-solving projects.
In the final year of your studies you'll undertake a major project that is either industry-based or simulates an industrial situation. You will work with industry leaders using the theory and practical experience gained through the course to solve an engineering problem.
Before graduating from this degree you are strongly encouraged to complete up to 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 requirement). These placements are normally taken during a one-year break in the middle or at the end of the third year of the degree.
