Mechanical engineers focus on turning energy into power and motion. More specifically, this discipline looks at the generation, conversion and use of energy, as well as the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. You will learn from world leaders in fluid mechanics, turbulence and biomechanics and have the opportunity to undertake an industry project combining research and practical implementation.
You will benefit from group activities and site visits to help consolidate theory with practical applications. You will have access to well-equipped laboratories for materials testing, engine/turbine testing, wind tunnel investigations, simulation and metal forming processes. A heavy engineering workshop is available for the manufacture of testing facilities and research apparatus, as well as extensive computer facilities.
The Master of Engineering (Mechanical with Business) will provide you with a formal qualification in mechanical engineering at the Masters level.
One of the following undergraduate degrees with a Mechanical Systems major or sequence:
with a weighted average mark of at least H3 (65%).

Mechanical engineering not only interacts with all other disciplines of engineering, but increasingly with other disciplines such as medicine and biology, supported by sophisticated computer technology. You will develop a breadth of skills and depth of fundamental knowledge, which will open up a wide variety of possible career directions.
Career opportunities exist in a diverse range of industries from aeronautics, automotive, robotics, manufacturing and environmental consultancies, to management and financial organisations. Emerging technologies in bioengineering, materials science, and nanotechnology will create further opportunities. Our graduates are employed by companies such as AECOM, Alcoa, BP Australia, ExxonMobil, Orica Limited, Origin Energy, Robert Bosch, Shell, SKM and OzMinerals.
