Make a difference on a global scale and
pursue an engineering career wherever your
travels may take you.
Due to a current worldwide shortage of
engineers and a demand for new kinds
of roles to tackle today’s environmental
and technological challenges, qualifed
engineers are in high demand and
command high salaries. As an
engineering graduate you’re assured of
a vast range of interesting and well-paid
employment opportunities.
At the Melbourne School of
Engineering, we focus on engineering
for the beneft of humanity and society.
As an engineering student, you have the
opportunity to work on projects with
a real-world impact, such as helping
communities in developing nations to
access clean drinking water; developing
diagnostic tools for doctors in remote
areas; and working on sustainable
energy solutions.
To become a professionally accredited
engineer you’ll complete a three-year
bachelors degree with an engineering
major or sequence, followed by a two-
year Master of Engineering. Engineering
majors are available in the Bachelor of
Biomedicine, Bachelor of Environments
and Bachelor of Science, and a
sequence of engineering subjects is
available in the Bachelor of Commerce.
If you select an engineering major or
sequence you’ll study engineering
foundation subjects from day one of
your frst year. These will provide you
with project-based experiences of the
different types of engineering. You’ll
then pursue a specialisation in your
second or third year, which will become
your focus through to the Master of
Engineering through the
Bachelor of Biomedicine
A major in Bioengineering Systems in
the Bachelor of Biomedicine can lead to
a Master of Engineering (Biomedical).
This pathway into engineering is ideal
if you’re looking to complement your
technical skills with medical knowledge
and take up a career in the challenging
feld of biomedical engineering. For
more information about the Bachelor of
Biomedicine see page 46.
Engineering through the
Bachelor of Commerce
You can use your breadth studies to
complete an engineering sequence in
the Bachelor of Commerce, leading to
the two-year Master of Engineering.
Six engineering sequences are available
through this pathway, allowing you
to develop the right combination of
business and engineering problem-
solving skills. For more information
about the Bachelor of Commerce see
page 48.
Engineering through the
Bachelor of Environments
Through the Bachelor of Environments
you can choose from three engineering
majors: Civil Systems (Civil/Structural
Engineering), Environmental
Engineering Systems and Geomatics.
All of these majors lead to the Master
of Engineering. For more information
about the Bachelor of Environments see
page 54.
Engineering through the
Bachelor of Science
Engineering through the Bachelor
of Science is a fexible option that
offers the largest range of engineering
majors and subject choices leading
to the Master of Engineering. This
is the ideal pathway if you want to
study engineering in a wider scientifc
context. For more information about the
Bachelor of Science see page 68.
