About this course

Your studies will provide a sound base of fundamental engineering principles, followed by specialist knowledge of the theory and practice of chemical, civil and structural, electrical and electronics and mechanical engineering. The course specifically offers extensive hands on practical experience, which will help you in your future career as an engineering technologist. In addition to the specific engineering knowledge, essential engineering skills including innovation, creativity, management and teamwork are features of the course. This course was developed in consultation with and is supported by industry leaders. You graduate with a sound foundation of engineering knowledge which directly aligns with international industry requirements. You can combine this course with the two-year Master of Engineering as an accredited pathway towards becoming a professional engineer. This pathway is similar to engineering programs offered in Europe and is an alternative to the traditional four-year Bachelor of Engineering Honours course. Chemical As a chemical engineering technologist, you design, operate and manage the processes that transform materials into everyday products. You are involved in key areas such as oil and gas refining, minerals processing, plastics, food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Civil and Structural As a civil and structural engineering technologist, you will continuously be challenging traditional construction methods with creativity and innovation helping design and maintain structures for the modern world. Key areas include structures, water resources, roads and traffic, bridges and marine structures. Your studies will focus on developing sustainable and ethical civil and structural solutions in areas such as structural engineering, water and its uses and the principles of sustainability. Electrical and Electronics As an engineering technologist in the electrical and electronics industry, you are responsible for the design, automation and control of the devices which make modern life convenient.
