Do you love bringing complicated ideas to life, exploring how things work, improving processes or simply imagining what's possible? As an engineer, you'll do just that to solve all kinds of problems – from the practical ones we face every day to major global issues. And at Murdoch, you'll join a community of free-thinkers who have been doing so since 1976. They've helped to design one of Australia's most iconic wind farms, use natural resources like lithium to change the way we use energy, find new ways to manage water, and recycle industrial waste to make plastic for medical use.


Where could an engineering degree take you?

There's no limit to what engineers can achieve. You could be working in an established or emerging industry; in Australia or abroad; in a big city or a rural community; indoors or outdoors. And here's something else to consider: the engineering job you end up in may not even exist yet!

Sustainable solutions

Develop new energy sources through sustainable solutions as a renewable energy engineer. Or help manage waste, pollution and water to create a cleaner, greener world as an environmental engineer.

Engineering systems and technologies

Design, install and monitor equipment to manage systems as an instrumentation and control engineer, or harness data and use communication, measurement and control technologies as an industrial computer systems engineer.

Solutions for emerging industries

As a chemical and metallurgical engineer, find new ways to make the most out of our natural resources by turning low-value raw materials into high-value products suitable for emerging industries.

Engineering and innovation

Lead teams in a corporate environment with a degree in engineering and management. Run your own business or transform an existing one with a degree in engineering and entrepreneurship and innovation.
