What you can expect to study

The program structure is outlined in our handbook. Here you can view all of the subjects you will be studying.

B Advanced Science

You can choose from the following majors:

Civil engineering covers the fields of structural design, geotechnical engineering and water engineering, together with infrastructure design and environmental engineering. Graduates will work in the fields of design, construction and management of engineering structures. Projects may cover residential and commercial buildings, highways and airports, water supply and sewerage schemes, etc. You may be an engineer in private industry, government departments, or in city, municipal or shire councils.

This program includes core subjects from all branches of electrical engineering. Graduates will work in the fields of electronic components, computers, electro-magnetics, power generation and distribution systems, power and control in public utilities, telecommunications, manufacturing, and electrical systems.

In addition to providing training in conventional mechanical engineering subjects, the program structure introduces students to subjects of study that address sustainability including sustainable design and sustainable energy engineering. Graduates will be well equipped with broad-based skills that meet the demand of Australian industries and are conscious of the need to promote sustainable design and practices. Examples include mechanical and machinery design; manufacturing; energy production; and marketing and management activities. Skills gained are required in industries such as manufacturing, materials handling, automobile, aerospace, mining, building services and infrastructure development.

Mechatronics (and robotics) provides the skills necessary for the design of smart machines of all types: cruise control in automobiles, pilotless spacecraft, automated factories and medical telerobotics. The program, accompanied by an extensive and integrated hands-on laboratory program, is essentially concerned with the design of intelligent mechanical systems and automation, and includes the study of robotics, computer control, automated manufacturing, microprocessor applications and machine design. Graduates in the program acquire the combined skills of mechanical and computer/electrical engineering that are needed in leading-edge industries such as aerospace systems, the car industry, automation and robotic applications, biomedical engineering, laser systems, and building materials manufacture.

Recent advances in computer and telecommunications networked systems have increased the importance of network technologies in the discipline of computer science. This major gives you a thorough technical understanding of modern networked computer systems, how they work and the principles that govern them.

In the Environmental major you will study Sustainable systems, Advanced Waste Management, Advanced Water and Wastewater Treatment, Sustainability and Risk Engineering, Planning and Environmental Regulation, Safety and Risk Management, Building in Bushfire Prone Areas.
