Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) Honours

Mechanical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, manufacture and maintenance of mechanical components and moving systems. The first year of this course includes a set of eight units that are common across all engineering honours courses. This allows students the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the various engineering disciplines on offer and the flexibility, if desired, to switch to another engineering discipline/course without penalty after the first year of study. Areas of study within the course include a foundation in physical and engineering sciences, along with engineering mechanics, computer-aided design and manufacturing, advanced engineering materials, mechanical design, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, control systems, building services, and project management. 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, teamwork and project development resulting in multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, and strong analytical skills to lead complex projects. Students taking this course also have the option to undertake a specialist stream in Motorsports. This option provides a special focus on automotive design and motorsports engineering.
