About this course

In the modern engineering environment, large-scale engineering projects are increasingly likely to be of a highly multi-disciplinary nature, requiring engineers from diverse backgrounds to be able to work effectively as a team to deliver the outcomes. In such environments, a broader understanding of engineering, beyond one specific area of specialisation, is highly desirable and advantageous. Developing such breadth in four-year engineering courses is a challenge as it compromises the level of specialist knowledge that is also required from a graduate engineer. Successful completion of this three-year program guarantees entry into ECU's Master of Engineering course, affording the opportunity to develop a chosen discipline specialisation building on this strong multi-disciplinary knowledge base.Applicants from South West WA will be able to study only the first year (up to eight foundation units) of this degree at ECU's Bunbury Campus, which may include attending a short set of lab sessions at Joondalup Campus by the end of each semester. After completing these eight units, Bunbury students will need to attend ECU's Joondalup Campus to complete the rest of their course. This option is only available for domestic students living in the South West region of WA.
