Your education and training will focus on developing skills that are highly desired by employers including effective teamwork and problem-solving.
The work experience component of this course gives you the opportunity to put your learning into practice while experiencing different workplace cultures. You have the opportunity to apply for work-integrated learning overseas to enhance your global learning experience.
In addition, you will graduate work-ready and equipped with valuable interview and application skills.
Benefit from the flexibility to tailor your studies and specialise in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical or Mechatronic Engineering. CQUniversity has strong relationships with industry practitioners and our close links to industry may provide you with the opportunity to gain support in the form of industry-based scholarships.
|Core Units||12||Major Units||20|
You are required to complete a total of 29 units including 13 core units and a further 19 units from the Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical discipline or a further 20 units from the Mechatronic engineering discipline plan.
As a Civil Engineer, you will be involved with structures and systems such as roads, water supply, bridges, buildings and tunnels. Civil Engineers are responsible for the design and construction of all our transport systems, the design and management of our gas and water supply, sewerage systems, harbours, airports and railways. They also plan, design and test the structures of private and public buildings and facilities.
Electrical Engineers are involved in areas such as electricity generation and distribution, communication systems, control systems and electronic equipment. As an Electrical Engineer you may plan the design of power stations and power equipment, design electrical systems, produce drawings using computer-aided design (CAD) and make decisions on the best type and arrangement of electrical circuits, transformers, circuit-breakers, transmission lines, and equipment.
Mechanical Engineers are involved with machines that move such as trucks, trains, ships, planes, and manufacturing equipment. Mechanical Engineers may perform tasks such as designing new machines and equipment that meet their client's needs and budgets, taking into account factors such as cost, availability of materials, strength and maintenance requirements, and the end-user of the equipment.
Mechatronic Engineering combines mechanical, electrical and computer engineering to create systems that include both movement and intelligence. As a Mechatronic Engineer, you may be involved in the design and maintenance of machinery and gadgets such as aircraft, robots, small electronic devices, and plant machinery.

Recommended study: Physics, Graphics, Mathematics C
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-op Engineering) is your gateway into the engineering industry. Upon completion you will be qualified to work as a professional Engineer in the civil, electrical, mechanical or mechatronic engineering fields depending on your chosen major.
|Fee Category||Commonwealth Supported Place|
|What is a Commonwealth Supported Place?||A Commonwealth Supported Place is subsidised by the Government so that you are only required to pay a Student Contribution amount rather than tuition fees.|
|Am I eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place?|| You are eligible to be Commonwealth supported if you are:
|Fee Type||Student Contribution|
|What is a Student contribution?||As a Commonwealth supported student, you will contribute towards the cost of your education by paying a Student Contribution. The Student Contribution is calculated for each term of enrolment based on the individual units you have enrolled in, not the course you are studying.|
|What is my Student Contribution?||
Your Student Contribution fee is charged per unit of study and is dependent on the Student Contribution Band for each unit. Student Contribution Bands are categorised by study disciplines and help provide an estimate of course fees.
The majority of units within this course fall within Band 2. Some units may fall within Band 1 and/or 3.
Student Contribution amounts for each band provide an estimate of the cost of your course. Your course may consist of units from more than one band so your fees could vary from the indicated amount as units are spread across a number of bands.
You can view fees specific to the course, and units, you are interested in studying by using our Cost Per Unit table.
|HECS-HELP and payment options||
HECS-HELP is the loan scheme provided by the Australian Government to help eligible Commonwealth supported students pay their student contributions through a loan. Eligible students can use a HECS-HELP loan to pay for all or some of their Student Contribution amount. If you elect to use a HECS-HELP loan, this means that you will defer payment of your Student Contribution amount and repay your HECS-HELP loan when your income is above the compulsory repayment threshold.
If you are not eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, or you are required to pay your Student Contribution upfront, you will need to pay your fees no later than the census date for the term in which you are studying.
|Other Fees||You will also incur a Student Services and Amenities Fee.|
|Other study costs||You may have other study costs such as travel expenses related to residential schools or work placements if they are a requirement of your course. There are also textbooks, stationery and other sundry costs associated with studying.|
At CQUniversity, we believe University should be for everyone. No matter your situation, we know that everyone needs a helping hand from time to time and are proud to offer a wide range of scholarships and awards programs.
Our scholarships could help you pay for some or all of your course fees, or even contribute towards your living and study expenses.
