Re-Engineer Engineering.

Be innovative. Think creatively in our brand new, state-of-the-art, green facilities. The future presents significant challenges for managing the environment, infrastructure and technological developments. Effective solutions to these challenges will require innovative engineering, applied science and design strategies.

At Western Sydney University, we prepare our students to take on those challenges and succeed. Our Engineering degree will give you real world experiences. The degree covers all major engineering domains, and you can experience many facets of engineering before deciding your area of specialisation at the end of your first year.

Successful applicants for Advanced Standing may be required to travel to different Western Sydney University campuses to complete the elements of their course.

Engineering (Honours) selected majors - Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical - are now offered at our new Sydney City campus in the heart of the CBD.
