You will study a mix of subjects in basic engineering sciences and business principles. These subects will provide you with skills in mathematics, design, physics, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering and the business environment.
You will also study an Introduction to Engineering subject, incorporating a humanitarian-focused Engineers Without Borders Challenge. You will have the opportunity to extend this aspect of your studies by completing an Engineers Without Borders elective, enabling you to experience humanitarian engineering first-hand.
Years 2 and 3
You will complete engineering subjects in areas such as electronics, computing, mechatronics, and areas specific to the aspects of business you are interested in such as economics, finance or global business.
You will deepen your knowledge in mechatronics engineering by studying automatic control which will allow you to design and develop autonomous systems, such as autonomous vehicles.
You will also be exposed to studies in advanced manufacturing systems, and advanced materials. Plus, you will develop experience in the computer simulation and analysis of manufacturing systems, and learn to design processes, as well as have an understanding of the critical nature of inventory control in engineering.
You will have the opportunity to complete a minor within the engineering discipline which will deepen your understanding of mechatronics and robotics. Options include:
- Aircraft Technologies
- Spacecraft Technologies
- Aviation Industry
- Computational Engineering and Simulation
- Humanitarian Innovation.
Your business studies will allow you to work across the business side of engineering, allowing you a greater potential to implement new engineering design solutions. Choose from 13 business majors and over 30 business minors.
You will also complete a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective in Year 2, 3 or 4.
Your final-year capstone project will develop and reinforce the skills and knowledge you need to commence your professional engineering career. The project allows you to demonstrate your knowledge of creating new mechatronics systems and applying your business knowledge to explore new markets for your innovation. You may have the opportunity to present your project at EnGenius, an end of year student showcase event.
