  • Objectives
    This course offers all the benefits of the Bachelor of Engineering, combined with substantial industrial experience. Students in this program are financially supported by their industry partner during their studies and undergo industrial training during the summer breaks and for six months between the third and fourth year of the program. Mentoring by the industrial partner is a key part of this program ensuring graduates are job ready for a particular industry partner. The academic part of this course provides graduates with the technical skills for a career in industry or research, as well as entry into higher level study. Graduates develop self direction, leadership, communication and people skills, providing opportunity to succeed in their choice of career. Emphasis is placed on learning through project work and students are exposed to professional engineering practice through guest lectures by practicing engineers, site visits and work experience. Specialisations are available in Civil engineering, Electrical and Electronics engineering and Mechanical engineering, offering career opportunities for in design and construction, buildings and town planning, new and sustainable forms of energy, digital control, computer control of machines, water supply and treatment, environmental protection, management, marketing and technical advice.
