The Bachelor of Engineering Technology is a new
three year design-orientated technical program - providing you with
the best possible start in a career as an Engineering
If you prefer a more practical approach to learning, you will
excel in this hands on program, with courses focused on engineering
principles that are implemented to solve design problems. From your
second year of study you will undertake a specialisation in Civil,
Mining or Mechanical Engineering, developing skills that will
enable you to cost and analyse project resources; conduct tests and
research; and gather and analyse data to support decision making
and reporting requirements. Upon graduation you will work in
positions requiring expertise in planning, designing and
As a graduate of this program you may choose to undertake our
Master of Engineering Technology which is specifically designed to
facilitate our Bachelor of Engineering Technology graduates gaining
Professional Engineer status. The main characteristic of this
program is applied design in a systems context; and from your
second year, you will specialise in Civil Engineering.
Areas of study available to you in the Civil Engineering program
include Fundamentals of Structural Design, Transport
Infrastructure, Waste & Wastewater Infrastructure Design, Water
& Drainage Infrastructure, Geomechanics, Engineering Surveying,
Infrastructure Planning & Management.
Successful completion of this program will give you the
foundation, knowledge and skills to:
- Contribute in a team undertaking planning, designing and
construction of Civil Engineering structures & systems, cost
and analyse project resources, conduct tests and research, gather
& analyse data to support decision making and reporting
- Move on to graduate studies in technology, business
administration and other areas
- Possess a core of basic analytical and communication skills,
common to all branches of engineering, and then permit you to
undertake in depth study in civil engineering
- Possess in depth knowledge of the industrial and social
environments in which you will function as an engineering
The School of Science, Information Technology and Engineering is
committed to producing creative, engineering technologists who have
a good knowledge of social, environmental, economic and
organisational issues that are necessary to obtain employment as an
engineering technologist and to be admitted as an Engineering
Technologist with Engineers Australia.
Graduates may be employed with private consultants, contracting
companies, or with federal, state and local government
organisations. There are significant opportunities for employment
in Australia, as well as in South-East Asia and throughout the rest
of the world.
