Overview

The Bachelor of Engineering Science/Master of Engineering is an internationally accredited combined course that, upon completion, qualifies you to be recognised as a professional engineer. This course is developed with global industry leaders, for industry, so you'll graduate job-ready.

You can choose from three specialisations: civil and structural engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, or mechanical engineering.

The Bachelor's component of the course that develops the necessary core skills and knowledge for your specialisation. You then move to the more advanced Master's level of study, and finish the course with a research thesis and design project.

The Bachelor's degree will provide you with a sound base of fundamental engineering principles, followed by specific learning in the theory and practice of your specialisation.
The Master's degree will expand your engineering specialist knowledge, with an emphasis on the themes of sustainability, creativity, teamwork, design, research and leadership.

The Bachelor of Engineering Science/Master of Engineering 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.

As a professional:

  • civil and structural engineer, you will continually challenge traditional civil and 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.
  • engineer in electrical and electronics, you are responsible for the design, automation and control of 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, and provide affordable manufacturing and production solutions. Key areas include mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines.

Prerequisite

NTCET/SACE Stage 2: Mathematical Methods or Physics. Alternatively, completion of CDU SMA104 Concepts of Mathematics unit or equivalent.

Why study engineering at CDU?

Our internationally-accredited Engineering degree is for problem solvers like you. Think creatively to find solutions to real-world challenges, from uniquely Top End issues like cyclones to systems and designs with wider impact like renewable energy, transport, building construction, electronics, and more.

  • #1 in Australia for engineering employment outcomes (GUG 2022)
  • Study online or on campus, full-time or part-time
  • Take part in projects and graduate with real work experience

What will I study?

The first year of study introduces basic engineering skills common to all engineering specialisations. In subsequent years you will follow a study path specifically developed for your area of engineering. The final year of study includes a major research thesis and a system design project.

Course structure

The program includes two 12-week work placements, 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.
