The School of Engineering is host to courses and world-class research in civil, mechanical, product design, structural and architectural engineering as well as advanced manufacturing, construction management and aviation.   

Our students and researchers are supported by iconic, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. 

A distinguishing feature of our engineering courses is that they are practical and industry-focused, with an expectation that students will undertake six to twelve months of work experience during their studies. 

Pathways exist to articulate students from TAFE courses directly into our degree courses.
