Mechanical Engineering students will develop a range of practical skills through a combination of laboratory work and projects.
The program from UOW ranks in the top 200 in the world by subject for Mechanical Engineering according to the QS World University Rankings 2017.
Mechanical engineers are in high demand regionally and internationally and job opportunities are plenty. Students undertaking the B.Eng (Mechanical Eng) typically enter professions such as a:
Product Design Engineers
Control and Systems engineer
Analysts and consultants
Advanced Postgraduate studies in Engineering
The program is recognized by the Society of Engineers Australia, providing professional recognition in the field of engineering in Australia and globally. This recognition ensures that graduates from this course are admitted, on the application, to the grade of Graduate Membership of Engineers Australia.
UOW Australia is a member of the Group of Eight (Go8) Deans of Engineering and Associates, in recognition of its being among the top Australian engineering faculties. This achievement is a direct result of a world-class reputation in teaching and research.
Accreditation and Recognition
This program is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education - Higher Education Affairs and is fully recognized within the UAE, GCC nations and internationally for further education and employment in the private and public sectors.
In addition, the program is quality assured by UOW, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the national regulator of the higher education sector in Australia. UOWD graduates have the opportunity to exchange their UOWD degree for the equivalent UOW Australia degree after completion.
Degree Requirements and Program Structure
To qualify for the award of the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering), a candidate shall accrue an aggregate of at least 222 Credit Points (CP) which include 30 CP of General Education as indicated in Table 1 and Table 2.
All students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering are required to sit for a Placement Test in Mathematics and Physics and, if necessary, may be requested to complete additional remedial subjects. Placement tests are usually scheduled in the first week of your joining semester and students should contact the Faculty Office to apply for the test.
Bachelor of Engineering Placement Tests
All Bachelor of Engineering students should complete two Engineering Placement Tests, one in Physics and one in Mathematics/Statistics. Passing a placement tests means you will not be required to take the corresponding remedial subject.
A mark of 60% or above in the test will entitle the student to continue with the year 1 subjects for Mathematics/Statistics and Physics for the Bachelors of Engineering. Students who score less than 60% in the test would be required to enroll in a remedial zero level subject to further strengthen their foundations in these subjects.
