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!
Develop new energy sources through sustainable solutions as a renewable energy engineer.
Design, install and monitor equipment to manage systems in a safe, cost effective and environmentally-friendly way as an instrumentation and control engineer.
Design and plan smart power systems to increase the reliability and stability of power supply as an electrical power engineer.
Help manage water waste and pollution to create a cleaner greener world and address some of our biggest water challenges as a water treatment and desalination engineer.
