Bachelor of Science (major in Engineering Systems)

University of Melbourne, The

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00116K

With a major in engineering systems, you will gain skills in mathematical modelling of biological and engineering systems, analytical and abstract thinking, problem-solving and design skills, and carrying out laboratory experiments to test possible solutions to complex problems. You'll focus on human systems, the design and operation of devices and processes, and the application of engineering skills to new medical treatments, instruments and machines.

Structure

"In your first and second years you'll complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major, including mathematics, biology and foundational engineering subjects. You can study engineering subjects from your first year with us, and you'll have plenty of flexibility to explore other interests too. In your third year, you will complete 50 points (four subjects) of study that is deep and specialised study in bioengineering systems. Throughout your degree you will also take science elective subjects and breadth (non-science) subjects, in addition to your major subjects and prerequisites."

Recognition

The Master of Engineering and Master of Engineering (with Business) is professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks - EUR-ACE and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.

Study pathways

To become a professionally accredited engineer, you'll complete a three-year Bachelor of Science with an engineering systems major, followed by a two-year Master of Engineering or Master of Engineering (with Business).
