Overview

Gain practical engineering experience, engage with industry and learn from experts to build a deep understanding of engineering technology. Understanding engineering principles will give you the ability to design, manufacture, install, commission, operate and maintain plants and equipment.

This degree gives you the flexibility to pursue a specialist area of engineering study, including electrical power or renewable energy, depending on your interests and career goals.

After completing the first year of your Bachelor of Engineering Technology, you could apply to transfer to a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree. You would still be able to complete your degree within four years of full-time study.

You can even take on another major from a different study area to broaden your understanding of how engineering applies in social, business, health and policy environments.
