The Bachelor of Engineering Science/Master of Engineering is an internationally accredited combined course that develops the necessary skills and knowledge in your chosen area of engineering at bachelor level before moving into more advanced master level study and finishing with a research thesis and design project. Areas of engineering include civil and structural, electrical and electronics and mechanical.

As a professional civil and structural engineer, you will continuously challenge traditional construction methods with creativity and innovation to help design and manage structures for the modern world. Key areas include structures, water resources, roads and traffic, bridges and marine structures.

As a professional engineer in the electrical and electronics industry, you are responsible for the design, automation and control of the devices which make modern life convenient. Key areas include electronics, telecommunications, biomedical applications and power generation and distribution, including renewable energy.

As a professional mechanical engineer, you are involved in the design and build of large and small devices which improve transportation, provide affordable manufacturing and production solutions. Key areas include mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines.

Your bachelor studies will provide a sound base of fundamental engineering principles, followed by specific learning in the theory and practice of civil and structural, electrical and electronics or mechanical engineering.

Your master's studies will expand your engineering specialist knowledge. Particular emphasis is placed on the themes of sustainability, creativity, teamwork, design, research and leadership.

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.
