In advanced manufacturing, new production techniques, sophisticated modern manufacturing technologies and high-precision and automated machinery are used to improve products and processes. Mechanical engineers in the manufacturing sector use a broad range of knowledge and skills, including information and communication technology (ICT), digital modelling, quality assurance and new organisational practices.
In this degree you will apply engineering theory to real-world challenges. You will work on a major industry project in your final year, and study advanced courses in mechatronics. Graduate career-ready by completing the UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program and gain at least 450 hours of skills and competencies through a range of engagement activities such as placements, internships, guest lectures, industry panels, site visits, networking and events.
We’re one of Australia’s leading universities for Engineering research.1 Our leading researchers will be your teachers and everything you learn will be supported by our research excellence.
What you'll learn
In your first year you will develop a strong, general foundation in engineering. As you advance in your studies you will explore the latest in manufacturing such as intelligent systems, and industrial actuation and automation. Our UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program allows you to apply the skills and knowledge you've acquired throughout your degree in real-world settings.
At least half of the honours year involves a major project. You will take the lead as an engineer in a project environment, working with industry, a government organisation, or an academic research area.
