The Bachelor of Engineering Technology is designed to develop your skills and enable you to combine an understanding of engineering concepts with modern technology.


Your education and training will equip you with the skills to innovatively apply, modify and adapt engineering practices to meet engineering challenges and problems for communities, society and the environment.


Tailor your course by choosing from a wide range of majors to suit your personal interests and career goals. The course utilises exciting technologies and has a project-based focus so you benefit from a more hands-on learning experience and have the ability to study on-campus in a non-traditional format or by online study.


You will have the opportunity to engage with practicing engineers, work on industry-sponsored projects and have access to industry-based scholarships offered by some of Australia's leading companies. Six weeks of industry placement during the course also allows you to apply your skills and increase your employability by gaining on-the-job experience.

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:
  • an Australian citizen who will undertake in Australia at least one unit of study that contributes to the requirements of your course; or
  • a New Zealand citizen who will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit of study; or
  • the holder of a permanent visa, including a permanent humanitarian visa, who will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit of study.
  • If you are not eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place you will be required to pay tuition fees. Find out more about tuition fees or fees for international students.

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 the Australian Government to help eligible Commonwealth supported students pay their student contributions through a loan.

To be eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, in addition to being enrolled in a Commonwealth Supported Place, you must be:

  • an Australian citizen who will undertake, in Australia, at least one unit of your course of study, or
  • a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder who meets the long-term residency requirements and who will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit(s) of study, or
  • a permanent humanitarian visa holder (visit www.homeaffairs.gov.au for the list of humanitarian visa subclasses) who will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit(s) of study.

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 (the 2018-2019 income year threshold is $51,957 or above).

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.
