  • Course description

    About Engineering

    As a Bachelor of Engineering student you will acquire, develop and demonstrate technical engineering knowledge and skills in civil, electrical and electronics or mechanical engineering, integrating problem-solving, teamwork and communication skills. This CQUniversity engineering program incorporates ‘Project Based Learning’, providing your learning in context, in formal and informal learning environments such as workshops, classes and project studios. Teamwork and problem solving skills are learned alongside the technical content in an exciting real-world engineering environment.


    The program consists of a common first year after which students select their study discipline in either civil, electrical or mechanical engineering. The first and second years of the Bachelor of Engineering program are offered at Gladstone, Mackay and Rockhampton campuses. The advanced years (Year 4) of the program are currently only available at Rockhampton. However, the entire program will be available via flexible delivery from 2010.


    Career Opportunities

    As a professional engineer you can be a driver of change in society and be not only responsible for the technological change, but also the impact it has on communities, society and the environment in general. Professional engineers work with people, they listen, then set about solving problems for people and communities.
    Bachelor of Engineering graduates enjoy a wide variety of challenging career options across a range of industries and governments sectors. Graduates having specialised in one of the following: civil engineering, mechanical engineering or electrical engineering, find employment in a vast array of industry areas. These encompass national and international public and private industry sectors, including the energy, transportation, manufacturing, process, construction, mining and education industries.

    Civil engineering typically involves infrastructure systems planning, design and supervision including the construction of buildings and bridges, transport and water resource systems.

    Mechanical engineering typically involves planning, design and supervision in climate control, manufacturing and process and machine systems.

    Electrical engineering typically specialises in systems design, development and maintenance of systems associated with electrical power and energy, telecommunications, instrumentation and control, microprocessors and electronics.

    Such is the level of industry demand, CQUniversity engineering graduates are highly sought after from all industry sectors with job offers often made even before students complete their studies.


    Program Structure
    This program is aimed at the education of professional engineers in one of four disciplines:

        * Civil
        * Electrical
        * Mechanical
        * Mining

    All students enrol in a 100% common first year and then a 75% common second year with a 25% discipline stream component. Students must select their discipline before enrolling in second year courses, except mining students who need to indicate their discipline in the first year of study.

    The first two years of this program are common to CF47 – Bachelor of Engineering (Co-op)/Diploma of professional Practice(Engineering). Students in this program may be invited to transfer to the Co-op program subject to their performance and the availability of industry placement places.


    Year 1

    These program plans are valid for students entering the program in 2006 or later. For continuing students who entered the program prior to 2006, please refer to the 2006 handbook or contact your Program Advisor for program details.

     PLEASE NOTE:

    * There is a compulsory 5 day residential school for ENEG11001 Engineering Skills 1 held during Week One of Term1.  Non attendence may result in forced withdrawl from the course

     
    All students enrol in a common first year and then select a specialist stream. New students must complete:
