Course Description

Mechanical engineering involves the creation and use of new technologies and the design and development of new materials, processes and products. This largely involves 'things that move', such as motor vehicles, aircraft systems, engines, pumps, gas turbines, industrial plants, air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, manufacturing processes, building services and even space stations.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical) has a strong focus on design and hands-on experience. Students complete design and build projects in second and third years, followed by a more advanced and extensive design/research project in the final year.

This degree provides a solid foundation in core mechanical engineering disciplines, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Through the academic program, students also develop written and oral communication skills and a familiarity with team work and project management.
