For a better tomorrow

Just like engineers, at UniSC we make things happen through innovative projects and partnerships.

Engineering is exciting because it combines science, math and creative thinking. Learn to question established ways of doing things and spark new, forward-thinking ideas. With innovative projects and partnerships for our students to work on, and state-of-the-art facilities to help you put your skills into practise throughout your studies, it's no wonder 95% of our engineering graduates are employed within four months* of finishing their degree.

And, did we mention we've maintained a five-star rating for teaching quality*, for 18 consecutive years?

Not sure which area of engineering you want to study?

That's OK. You'll get to explore each specialisation in your first year before locking in your decision.

Bachelor degree (Honours)

All of UniSC's Engineering degrees are honours degrees.

What's an Honours degree?

An Honours degree offers you the opportunity to continue your undergraduate degree studies at a higher level and specialise in your area of interest. Completing an Honours degree is also a pathway to further research-based postgraduate studies.

UniSC Engineering Honours Degrees are Embedded Honours degrees, where the Honours component is completed as part of your 4 year degree.

Combined degree

Gain a career advantage with a double degree.

When I finish my degree, I’m hoping to work in aerospace as I have a huge passion for big and powerful machines and how they are designed. I can’t wait to graduate and get out in the industry!

We’re changing the way universities do energy

Clean energy is more than just a lesson at UniSC – it’s how we will power our largest campus. To embrace Australia’s steady supply of sunshine, we have installed 6,000+ solar panels to power a “water battery” that will cut our energy use by 40 percent – a first for an Australian university.
