Western Sydney University and UNSW Sydney have collaborated on an advanced Engineering degree, bringing you the expertise of two world-class universities. This degree is designed for high achieving students to undertake advanced engineering topics and gain substantial research experience.
Applications Now Open
Applications are now open for courses with a mid-year intake and for commencing undergraduate study in March 2022. Take your first step towards an Unlimited future.
Engineering Your Future
Challenge yourself to be the best. The Bachelor of Engineering Advanced (Honours) is designed to meet Engineers Australia professional accreditation requirements. Focus on a discipline area by selecting a key program in Electrical, Mechanical, Robotic & Mechatronic, and Software Engineering. In addition, you can specialise by selecting a sub-major from a wide range of recommended unit sets that will complement your chosen discipline.
Honours class will be awarded at completion of four years of study, based on the overall academic performance during the study period. Students in this program will need to maintain at least credit average GPA throughout their study; those not meeting this academic performance requirement will be transferred to Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) program.
All students commence at Western at our new Parramatta Engineering Innovation Hub where you’ll have access to state-of-the-art facilities at a convenient Western Sydney location. The first two years of the course will be taught by Western and UNSW academics. After satisfactory completion of second year, students will have an option to continue their studies with Western or transition to UNSW for years 3 and 4.
The course structure is outlined in our handbook. Here you can view all of the units (subjects) you will be studying.
This specialisation 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, this specialisation will introduce you to areas of study that address sustainability. 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.
This specialisation provides the skills necessary for the design of smart machines of all types. Graduates acquire the combined skills of mechanical and computer/electrical engineering needed in leading-edge industries such as aerospace systems, the car industry, automation and robotic applications, biomedical engineering and building materials manufacture.
This specialisation provides a solid foundation in theoretical knowledge on computer software systems with practical acquisition of relevant industry skills. The program is offered inside an industry hub which will provide you with direct access and firsthand experience in these industries.
