Study engineering


Use your problem-solving skills to create a better future

Impact the world around you

Engineers focus on how things work – how they are built and how to make them better. As an engineer, you’ll use mathematical and scientific principles to solve a wide range of technical problems, from designing better roads to developing more efficient technologies. It’s a challenging, rewarding career that lets you use your talents to improve people’s everyday lives.

Build a cutting-edge career

Our practical Engineering programs focus on core analytical and problem-solving skills and show you how to use them in a range of real-world settings, including 12 weeks of professional work experience. An Engineering degree opens up career opportunities in construction, environmental management, transport, manufacturing, technology, aviation, agriculture and more.

Why study at USC?

USC's new Engineering Learning Hub has some of the most advanced engineering and 3D visualisation facilities in Australia. Our Visualisation Studio houses the immersive, 3D virtual CAVE2TM, which is the only facility of its kind used for teaching anywhere in the world. You'll also attend classes and complete practical tasks in the interactive, 3D-enabled Collaboration Studio.

Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours)

Civil engineers plan, design and build the infrastructure around us, including buildings, roads and water systems. The four-year Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours) focuses on engineering design, project management and sustainability, with the choice to specialise in construction or water and environment. If you really want to use your engineering skills to help protect the natural environment, build your expertise in environmental management, planning and restoration with the double Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours)/Bachelor of Environmental Science.

Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Honours)

Mechanical engineers work with machines and mechanical systems to develop better manufacturing methods. In the four-year Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Honours), you’ll master the finer points of engineering and machine design, fluid mechanics and production engineering. Deepen your knowledge with a minor in environmental engineering or supply chain management. In your fourth year you’ll complete an Honours research project on a topic of your choice.
