  • Objectives
    Mechanical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, manufacture and maintenance of mechanical components and moving systems. Areas of study within the Mechanical Engineering course include a foundation in physical and engineering sciences along with engineering mechanics, computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing, advanced engineering materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, control systems, heating and cooling systems, and project management. Graduates will have competencies in all major areas of mechanical engineering, and be able to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects. The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects. Mechanical engineers have diverse employment opportunities in most sectors of industry including product design and development, manufacturing, road and transport, mining and resource, public utilities, agriculture, defence, aerospace and consulting.
  • Entry requirements
    Satisfactory performance in TEE Calculus or Applicable Mathematics, or equivalent, is required. TEE Physics is desirable. Students who have completed a TAFE Diploma or its equivalent in an allied engineering field may be admitted to the Bachelor of Engineering with advanced standing. Special admission requirements Note: Students who have not completed TEE Calculus or TEE Physics (or equivalents) will be required to complete bridging units during the first year of their studies.
