    Take charge of your carreer

    Change the course of your life with USQ’s Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical). With the opportunity to study via distance education or on campus, you will have the flexibility to adapt your study to your life.

    Why Mechanical?

    You’ll learn the fundamental skills of design, innovation and systems improvement, and gain experience working with USQ’s Heat Engines and High Speed Gas Dynamics laboratories. In your first year, you’ll explore all areas of the engineering field to allow you to take charge of your own career. After you graduate, your professional skills will allow you to work with some of Australia’s biggest corporations as a Professional Engineer in the automotive, aeronautical, industrial, domestic, or transportation industries in modern mechanical technology, systems or specialist sales.

    Apply your knowledge through practical work experience and an exciting final year research project. Previous students have produced projects in the fields of the redesign of an FSAE race car, the use of the vibration signature in structural health monitoring, Microalgae as alternative fuel for Compression Ignition Engines and modification of agricultural equipment and obstacle detecting robotics.

    Australia requirements for international students

    In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

    Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test. 

    You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
