Choose Engineering at Swinburne

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

That’s why we offer engineering courses and engineering degrees 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. You'll learn specialised engineering skills and competencies formally recognised by Engineers Australia. Build on your practical application knowledge and explore our Smart Structures Laboratory — the only one of its type in Australia — designed to test large-scale civil, mechanical, aerospace and mining engineering components and systems right here on our Hawthorn campus.

Browse TAFE, undergraduate and postgraduate engineering courses from our study disciplines to find detailed course information, application dates, engineering ATAR scores, fees, entry requirements and more.

With Swinburne’s Bachelor of Engineering hanging on their wall, they’ll have the skills to use the technology that’s shaping sustainable industries. But, that’s just part of Jae’s story, they’re also in five different clubs and now has industry experience at Infrabuild. Not bad for Jae, and not bad for a piece paper.
