Engineering courses and degrees

Engineers look to our future, and work hard to make it possible, today. 

That’s why we offer engineering courses across software, telecommunications, product design engineering, civil engineering, mechanics, robotics and more. 

Each one of our engineering degrees offers critical, hands-on experience — and are accredited by Engineering Australia and the Australian Computer Society. Our Smart Structures Laboratory — the only one of its type in Australia — tests large-scale civil, mechanical, aerospace and mining engineering components and systems right here on our Hawthorn campus.
