  • Objectives
    The specific Bachelor of Engineering (Engineering Scholars Program) is available to students who have achieved an ENTER score of 80.00 (or equivalent), and is designed to extend high-achieving students by providing them with opportunities to work with Deakin’s leading researchers and industry partners on cutting-edge projects. Students will be assigned a mentor and be given opportunities for vacation work in the Geelong Technology Precinct, and industry placements. Deakin's Bachelor of Engineering places great emphasis on the practical application of engineering and scientific principles to produce rounded industry-ready engineers, immediately employable and capable of adapting to an ever changing future. This course is designed to maximise your employment prospects, meeting both your needs and those of the engineering profession. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Engineering you will become a life-long learner capable of building your career upon a solid foundation of knowledge. You will learn generic skills including: comprehension and communication; technical report writing and presentation; project management; entrepreneurship; innovation and leadership; understanding of the ethical basis of the engineering profession and practice; developing an understanding of contemporary technical and professional issues in the practice of engineering; and an understanding of complex problems and producing innovative solutions beneficial to their organisation and society. You will also learn specific skills such as; a sound, fundamental understanding of the scientific principles underlying technology; understanding the basic principles underlying the management of physical, human and financial resources; acquiring the mathematical and computational skills necessary for the solution of theoretical and practical problems and for meeting future changes in technology; and an understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the professional engineer. You will undertake common subjects in your first year before you choose to specialise in Civil Engineering, Electronics, Mechanical Engineering or Mechatronics and Robotics. This format allows you to make a more informed decision and gain a broad base of knowledge in engineering.

    Fees and charges
    Fee paying place - International (IFP)
    A Fee paying place is one for which the university does not receive any government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.

    Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.

    Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
    EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is the standard full time load for one year of study.

    * The 'indicative annual course fee' cited has been provided as a guide only. It has been calculated on the basis of a typical enrolment of a student undertaking the course in 2009, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline.
    The actual fees charged by Deakin University will depend upon the discipline from which each individual unit is chosen, and may vary from the indicative course fee cited, particularly if units are chosen from a number of disciplines. The cost of each unit offered in 2009 can be viewed at  http://www.deakin.edu.au/current-students/handbooks2009/search.php.
    Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
    Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on 'indicative course fees' to calculate the total future cost of their course.


    Career opportunities
    Deakin Engineering courses are designed to maximise student employment prospects, producing industry-ready engineers, who are immediately employable, and capable of adapting to an ever changing future. The program is offered in three key areas - Electronics; Mechanical; and Mechatronics and Robotics.

    Electronics
    Employment opportunities for graduates include: consumer and industrial electronics design; automotive electronics; radio frequency (RF) system design; telecommunications; control electronics; digital signal processing; very large scale integrated (VLSI) circuit design.

    Mechanical
    The automotive industry, in particular, has been involved in the design of Deakin's mechanical engineering degree, and graduates can look forward to a high level of employment in this industry and supplier companies, as well as other leading manufacturing and design companies. Other industries where graduates may be employed include: aircraft; ship-building; aerospace; railroad.

    Mechatronics and Robotics
    Graduates can be employed as electronic control systems engineers or robotics engineers, and may work in areas including: factory control; automation; control system design; aircraft control and navigation industry; automated vehicles and automotive industry; advanced manufacturing industries.


    Course rules
    To be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering (within the Engineering Scholars Program), a student must successfully complete units with a total value of 32 credit points (1 credit point represents one quarter of a full-time student's workload during a trimester). The 32 credit points must include all core units. The elective units may be selected from:

        * other units offered by the School of Engineering and Information Technology
        * units offered by other faculties of Deakin University

    Normally, of the total credit points, at least 12 must be for level 3 and level 4 units, at least 5 for level 4 units and at least 22 for level 2 units or higher.

    All students are required to complete at least one wholly online unit.


    Major sequences
    The following majors will be offered:
    Electronics
    Mechatronics and Robotics
    Mechanical


    Admission requirements - general
