Mechanical engineering is a diverse field that can be applied right across industry – from robotics and automation to manufacturing, defence technology, aerospace, mining, construction and energy.
In this degree you will learn to engineer solutions to everyday challenges and discover the latest in machinery design, advanced materials, manufacturing technologies and sustainable energy systems. You will work on a major industry project in your final year. 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.
What you'll learn
You will develop a strong general foundation in engineering and take courses selected to offer you specialised mechanical engineering knowledge. 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. There is also the option to do a full-semester internship in your honours year.
