The Bachelor of Engineering Science will provide you with the necessary scientific knowledge that underpins your engineering discipline, followed by a specialist knowledge of the theory and practice of civil and structural, electrical and electronics, and mechanical engineering.

The course will help you to develop skills for the planning and execution of engineering projects.

The course specifically offers extensive hands-on practical experience, which will help you in your future career as an engineering technologist. Essential engineering skills including innovation, creativity, management and teamwork are also 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.

As a civil and structural engineering technologist, you will be able to work with other engineers and technologists on the design and maintenance of structures for the modern world. Key areas include 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.

As an engineering technologist in the electrical and electronics industry, you will be able to work together with engineers and technologists on the design, automation and control of the devices which make modern life convenient. You are involved in electronics, telecommunications, biomedical applications and power generation and distribution, including renewable energy.

As a mechanical engineering technologist, you will be able to collaborate with other engineers and technologists in the design and build of large and small devices which improve transportation and provide affordable manufacturing and production solutions. Key areas include mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines.

Career opportunities

Graduating from the civil and structural major of this course may lead to career opportunities in areas such as design, construction, water supply and treatment, infrastructure development, roads and traffic and project management.

Graduating from the electrical and electronics engineering major of this course may lead to career opportunities in areas such as electronics, renewable energy, power generation and distribution, manufacturing, process control, mining, oil and gas, consultation, and project management.

Graduating from the mechanical engineering major of this course may lead to career opportunities in areas such as design, machinery, manufacturing and fabrication, process control, mining, oil and gas, consultation, and project management.

Professional recognition

ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA

The Bachelor of Engineering Science (Civil and Structural) is accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of engineering technologist and therefore recognised internationally under the Sydney Accord.

The Bachelor of Engineering Science (Electrical and Electronics), and Bachelor of Engineering Science (Mechanical) are provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of engineering technologist.

Note: Engineers Australia initially gives provisional accreditation for new engineering courses - full accreditation can only be obtained after the first students have graduated.

Course structure

The first year of study introduces basic engineering skills common to all engineering specialisations. In subsequent years students follow a study path specifically developed for your chosen specialisation of civil and structural, electrical and electronics or mechanical engineering.

A feature of the program is twelve weeks of industrial work experience, ensuring that you are familiar with current engineering practice and begin to create your network of engineering contacts for future employment.

This course is available externally by distance learning if you are not able to attend classes on campus on a regular basis. Access to the internet is required for distance learning, with access to high speed broadband highly recommended.


  • 2021 HE unit offerings and unit fees are not yet available however will be published no later than 1 December 2020.
  • Always refer to the Course Catalogue for the latest information about your course prior to enrolment.

This course is being reaccredited and students should re-check the course structure and study plans early in 2021 for possible changes.
