Why study an engineering degree?
Engineers are problem solvers. If you like thinking outside the box and figuring out how things work, a career in engineering could be for you.
CDU's engineering programs are developed in consultation with industry leaders and practical experience is an integral part of the curriculum whether you study your engineering course online or on campus, full-time or part-time.
Our Bachelor of Engineering Science offers fascinating specialisations in mechanical, civil and structural, or electrical and electronics engineering. You can immerse yourself in cutting-edge projects spanning biomedical advancements, renewable energy solutions, sustainable practices, 3D printing innovations, and the exciting realms of robotics and mechatronics.
Studying engineering courses online
CDU offers online engineering degrees, meaning you don’t have to be on campus or even in the Northern Territory to participate in our engineering program.
We’ve been delivering online education for decades, and our expert engineering lecturers are dedicated to offering the same support and attention to students studying engineering online as their on-campus peers.
Our online learning platform, known as Learnline, is where you’ll find your recorded lectures and tutorials, online labs, simulations, learning materials and communication tools for interacting with your classmates and teachers. The flexibility of an engineering degree at CDU includes choosing between full-time and part-time study, with the ability to switch between the two if needed.
Your career in engineering
Engineers create the physical world we live in and work to find better, more efficient ways to do things. From the tunnels we drive through and the apps on our mobile phones all the way to the pill-sized camera used to diagnose internal medical issues, engineers influence many aspects of our modern lives. As such, there are many career pathways for engineering students to explore.
Our engineering courses include undergraduate study and diploma level study, both of which will help you gain a qualification in this in-demand field.
You will likely pursue a career that’s relevant to your specialisation. The streams available in the Bachelor of Engineering Science include civil and structural, electrical and electronics, and mechanical engineering. There is often an overlap of knowledge between specialisations so our engineering students gain a general understanding of several engineering areas and strong foundational knowledge of the discipline.
CDU graduates apply their creative and innovative thinking to real-world issues, from the unique challenges we face in the Northern Territory to systems and designs across a whole spectrum of industries, both in Australia and internationally.
