Specializations

Your engineering degree features common units in the first year, giving you the opportunity to explore the full range of engineering majors before you choose your career specialization.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical Process)

By studying chemical process engineering at QUT you'll have a qualification that is highly recognized by the industry, with more training around business skills to prepare you for the real-world financial environment in which industry operates. Your learning of chemistry, maths, and physics will be applied to the energy and materials sectors of the economy. You'll also develop project management and leadership skills to approach complex and multidisciplinary problems. You'll have access to opportunities for site visits, work-integrated learning and research projects.

As part of our commitment to diverse and real-world learning, our mobility tours give you the opportunity to visit sites overseas. Visits have previously included Germany and Scandinavia.

Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honors-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honors degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honors degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)

By studying civil engineering at QUT you will be recognized for professional membership in Australia and overseas, giving you more employment opportunities. Because this course provides students with both broad knowledge and specializations, its graduates are ready to start work in professional practice. Civil engineering at QUT is highly regarded for its strength in teaching and research. You will work closely with staff in an innovative learning environment that involves real-world hands-on activities. Your study plan for this specialization includes the choice of a second study area.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Computer and Software Systems)

This unique course will provide you with a background in electrical engineering with embedded systems specialization, along with software design and implementation skills. You will learn about the central role of software in the modern world—in banking and finance, government, education, transportation, entertainment, science, medicine, and law. You will also learn about the many applications of software that are safety-critical or involve large and expensive systems that have a major impact on people's lives, livelihoods, and the economy, and that the effectiveness of these applications depends on the skills of software engineers.

The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honors degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Aerospace)

You will learn about aerodynamics, aircraft control systems, avionics navigation, and communications, and specialize in the design of electronic systems for aircraft and satellite systems using systems engineering methodology. We are a major player in national avionics research and we have strong partnerships with government and industry. You'll be involved in research projects such as fixed-wing UAV and rotorcraft, aerospace vision systems, aircraft control systems, and autopilot design.

Field trips provide you with a first-hand view of aerospace avionics, plus you'll interact and engage with engineers and researchers at QUT’s Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical)

Mechanical engineering at QUT offers you a balanced mix of theory and practice to prepare you for the work environment. You receive a thorough grounding in the engineering sciences and hands-on, practical experience in real-world problem solving and application of theory in a program that is strongly oriented towards industry needs. In this way, we'll make you fully prepared to work in every aspect of mechanical engineering from technical analysis to the operation and maintenance of equipment and systems.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronics)

Mechatronics engineering is the hybrid discipline of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering, and computing. This degree provides you with skills in all these disciplines to enter the growing industry. You'll benefit from our close links with industry and may be involved in projects such as QUT Motorsport and the aerospace avionics Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Outback Challenge.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Medical)

During this degree, you'll undertake professional experience and other hands-on activities such as hospital and industry site visits. There is also the possibility of involvement in industry-based projects, overseas study, work opportunities and ground-breaking research through the QUT Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, and the QUT Medical Engineering Research Facility.
