engineering courses – all types


Engineering is often known by the other commonly used term, Applied science. Courses at undergraduate bachelor, postgraduate master, Ph.D doctorate research degree levels in Australian universities are listed below. More non-Engineering subject areas here.

  • Besides ATAR, what are the prequisite HSC subjects?
  • Engineering courses cover all subjects related to developing, providing and maintaining   infrastructure, products and services a developing country needs  – from research  to manufacturing a product to building transport channels.      

  • A university degree in Engineering paves the way to employment as Professional Engineer in Electrical or Electronic Engineering, Computer or Software Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Automation & Robotic Engineering, Mechatronics, Civil and structural Engineering, Marine Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
  • You get to study the life cycle of product, from conception and design to creation.  Applied Science and mathematics are typically core topics 

If you are unsuccessful in finding a specific branch of Engineering (Eg. Coastal Engineering, Maritime Engineering, Aerospace, Medical engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Geo technical engineering etc ),  please visit  links below and follow through to see what’s  offered.
