From civil and mechanical to biomedical, electrical and software engineering, you’ll learn how to create innovative solutions to contemporary problems.

We believe engineers have the potential to change how we live. That’s why we offer engineering degrees and diplomas at Swinburne.

Through your chosen specialisation you’ll gain hands-on experience with a work placement in your field. Our degrees are professionally accredited by Engineering Australia and the Australian Computer Society.

Consider combining your studies in engineering with study in business, computer science, design, law or science to broaden your career opportunities. It’s just a matter of choosing the course that suits the future you can picture.

You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technology. Our Smart Structures Laboratory – the only one of its type in Australia – tests large-scale civil, mechanical, aerospace and mining engineering components and systems at our Hawthorn campus.

Our engineering courses provide you with the comprehensive theory and practical skills needed to apply your knowledge to the workplace. A Swinburne engineering course could lead to a career in the medical, building and construction, telecommunications, software, transport, industrial design, energy or civil infrastructure industries.

I have always been creative and interested in how things work. From an early age I dreamed of being an inventor but a Bachelor of Inventiveness did not exist. Then I discovered product design engineering – it was the fusion of creative design thinking and engineering I was looking for.
