Do you want to make solar energy more efficient and live in a sustainable city, or create new technologies in robotics, uncrewed aircraft and wireless internet of things? If you are creative, enjoy problem solving, teamwork and science, this could be the degree for you.
Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree boasts many unique characteristics, but best of all, it is built on a ‘systems engineering’ framework, where you will learn how engineering disciplines work together. Our state-of-the-art education experience ensures you will be able to design, analyse and manage the complex systems of the future.
The first two years of the program is common for all students. You will be exposed to many engineering disciplines, before specialising in your chosen field. After that, you can choose to specialise in areas such as electronics & communications, mechatronics, aerospace, renewable energy, or environmental or nuclear systems. You can also combine your engineering program with another degree at ANU in a Flexible Double Degree to graduate with two qualifications.
This exceptional degree will not only allow you to excel in your career, but to also make a real difference and help to solve some of the world’s largest problems.
Students completed the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) are required to complete a specialisation from the following list:
- Aerospace Systems
- Electronic and Communications Systems
- Environmental Systems
- Mechatronic Systems
- Nuclear Systems
- Renewable Energy Systems
Our unique systems engineering focus is embedded in our educational programs. Not only do our graduates attain deep expertise in their chosen discipline, they also learn to analyse and design complex systems that are grounded in their social, environmental, and economic contexts.
Work Integrated Learning
Work-integrated learning is an integral part of your learning experience. A requirement of Engineers Australia accreditation includes the completion of 12 weeks of full-time work experience outside of the university.
Capstone, completed in your final year of your studies, is considered the “pinnacle” of the engineering journey. Students serve as engineering consultant teams for industry and academic clients, developing conceptual designs, sub-system requirements, evaluate risk as well as manage quantitative trade-off analyses.
Engineering careers are diverse and in demand in Australia and overseas. At ANU, you will develop skills and abilities that are highly sought after in engineering and other organisations. Thanks to the unique interdisciplinary approach, many of our graduates quickly progress to senior roles.
