Engineers are professional problem-solvers. Our location in Australia’s Top End, gateway to Asia, is teeming with real-world challenges and opportunities.
At CDU, you'll be encouraged to think independently and find creative and logical solutions in your chosen discipline.
Chemical engineers develop and design chemical manufacturing processes such as fuels, foods, beer, wine, polymers and pharmaceuticals.
You may choose to design and build a chemical plant, under strict conditions. As a graduate of Engineering at CDU, you may find employment in large-scale manufacturing plants, and play an important role in improving quality, safety and efficiency.
Civil & Structural Engineering
Electrical & Electronics Engineering
Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a rapidly developing field that has a significant impact on our daily lives. Electronics is an essential component for Internet of Things (IoT), consumer electronics such as phones and computing devices, as well as industrial control systems. Electrical systems are changing the way we use energy and resources and will be essential for reducing our carbon footprint in the future. This includes renewable energy, smart power generation, transmission and storage systems, electric cars and transport systems and novel consumer products.
You will learn how to design, manufacture, test, operate and maintain electrical and electronics systems throughout the course.
As a graduate you will be sought after in industries such as communication, defence, mining and utilities Opportunities also exist to continue with research into design of solar cells, energy transmission and energy storage, video transmission and compression and photonics.
Mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse of engineering disciplines.
Develop creative thinking that will allow you to design products and systems of the future, overcome constraints, and achieve design goals. You will learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing.
Work experience is vital to your success in later years. Employers are looking for students with practical experience, all-rounders who can integrate well into a workplace.
We will help you find meaningful work experience prior to graduating from University.
If you are in the Bachelor of Engineering (Co-op) program you'll have the opportunity to complete up to six months of paid vacation work in your third year of study. Bachelor of Engineering, Master of Engineering and Master of IT (Software Engineering) students are expected to complete at least 12 weeks of study.
Engineers Without Borders
The Engineers Without Borders Challenge Scholarship is a three-year program. It offers ten students from Australia and New Zealand $10,000 each to assist them to apply their engineering skills to community development initiatives aimed at eradicating poverty.
The Scholarship program is supported by BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities.
