Mechanical engineering holds together our modern society. Our cities, our technologies and our vast chains of logistics cannot exist without a comprehensive working knowledge of physics.
Our mechanical engineering courses provide a foundation in practical physics. You’ll learn how to use the physics of forces, heat, fluids, and energy, and combine these with the study of advanced materials to make things that move to help society grow and prosper.
Discover the mechanical engineering theory and practice behind designs for renewable energy, medical implant and vehicle safety devices. The project management training you’ll receive will give you the experience to bring your new knowledge into practice.
With this experience, you will enter the workforce confident that you have the technical foundations you need to bring innovative and groundbreaking designs to the world.

Mechanical Engineering at Swinburne
Mechanical engineering degrees are an opportunity to explore the design of technology with physical motion. Join Team Swinburne as they go beyond the classroom and design build and test an electric race care. Hear from staff and students about opportunities to work with industry and apply what you’ve learned.
The Swinburne Advantage
An undergraduate degree must be about more than just knowledge – it’s also job readiness, professional experience and access to further opportunities.
We partner with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences. Our degrees can include placements, internships, industry-linked projects, study tours and more. This is your chance to work on real-life projects, solve day-to-day challenges in your field and gain the professional skills that put knowledge into practice. You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence, knowing you have what it takes to land a job by graduation or even before.
