Mechanical engineering applies human and material resources to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of machines to move people, goods and materials, generate energy, produce goods and services, control pollution and dispose of wastes.
Mechanical engineers turn energy into power and motion, focusing on the generation, conversion and use of energy, as well as the design, construction and operation of devices and systems.
You will learn from world leaders in fluid mechanics, turbulence and biomechanics. Opportunities to consolidate theory with practice will come from group activities, site visits and industry projects. You will have access to well-equipped laboratories for materials testing, engine/turbine testing, wind tunnel investigations, simulation and metal forming processes. A heavy engineering workshop is available for the manufacture of testing facilities and research apparatus, as well as extensive computer facilities.
The Master of Engineering (Mechanical with Business) leads to a formal qualification in mechanical engineering at the Masters level.
Mechanical engineering not only interacts with all other disciplines of engineering, but increasingly with other disciplines such as medicine and biology, supported by sophisticated computer technology. You will develop a breadth of skills and depth of fundamental knowledge, which will open up a wide variety of possible career directions.
Career opportunities exist in a diverse range of industries from aeronautics, automotive, biomedical, manufacturing, construction and building to robotics and the environment. Emerging technologies in bioengineering, materials science, and nanotechnology will create further opportunities.
Our graduates are employed by companies such as AECOM, Alcoa, BP Australia, ExxonMobil, Orica Limited, Origin Energy, Bosch, Shell, Jacobs and OZ Minerals.
The Master of Engineering is professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.
