Engineering is a force with which you can create profound change and improvement in society. Through study in this area, you will be empowered to tackle worldwide challenges and make an impact through engineering innovation. Embark on an engineering pathway and gain the skills needed to meet future global needs – from creating some of the biggest buildings, to designing minuscule electronic devices.
Do you want to play a critical role to imagining and designing solutions to complex problems? Engineering allows you to do just that by exploring how things work and bringing creations to life, enabling a better society for all.
Engineering touches on many aspects of daily life, and there’s an area for you whatever your passion, from biomedical, civil and mechanical engineering, to environmental, chemical, mining and software engineering.
As new technology emerges, demand for engineering professionals rises. Employers are seeking graduates who are equipped with the technical skills and knowledge to adapt to and evolve with industry developments.
Develop your logical thinking and critical analytical skills in preparation for a career in a number of highly paid engineering fields.
- Strong links with industry mean you’ll work closely with prospective employers to build connections, knowledge and the most up-to-date, relevant and in-demand skill set.
- Graduate as an accredited engineer who is connected, versatile, technically adept and an exceptional problem solver, setting you up for an exciting career.
- Hands-on intensives developing practical skills in 3D printing, welding, soldering and other tools relevant to your chosen career path.
- Enhance your employability while making connections in student clubs and societies, like Engineers Without Borders and Women in Engineering and Mathematical Sciences.
- Learn from and study alongside engaging and innovative lecturers and researchers who are making ongoing impact in the industry.
