What will I learn?
With the focus of this degree on real solutions for real-world engineering problems, you will study:
dynamics and kinematics
thermodynamics and sustainable design
materials and design for manufacturing
manufacturing systems and engineering maintenance
You ill also work on a major industry project in your final year. While you study you ill have access to our state-of-the-art engineering spaces, including the Engineering Mechatronics Lab; Experience One Studio; and the Experiential Learning Suite.
Careers to consider:
Mechanical engineer: developing products from small parts to large plant, machinery or vehicles; can work on all stages of a product such as research, development, design, manufacture and installation
Industrial engineer: working to eliminate wastefulness in production processes; develops systems, facilities and equipment that increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve quality and safety
Mechanical engineering supervisor: overseeing the design of mechanical equipment, industrial processes and robotics; supervising the production, operation, repair and maintenance of equipment; managing staff, resources and work processes
Hydraulics engineer: focusing on fluid mechanics - the motion, control and storage of water and sewage; designs and develops structures and facilities, such as canals, rivers, dams, reservoirs and water treatment plants; works on large scale issues such as power generation, flood control and access to drinking water
Mechanical designer: creating machines, products, and new technologies; using computer aided design software (CAD) and tools; understanding of drafting practices and standards relevant to their industry and products
What you'll learn:
You will develop a strong general foundation in engineering and take courses selected to offer you specialised mechanical engineering knowledge. In the compulsory 12-week industry placement you ill get to use the knowledge and skills you ive learned in a work environment.
At least half of the honours year involves a major project. You will take the lead as an engineer in a project environment, working with industry, a government organisation, or an academic research area. There is also the option to do a full-semester internship in your honours year.
