Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechanical)

University of Sydney

The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechanical) will develop your ability to design, manage and maintain a diverse range of mechanical applications. Through practical learning and industry experiences, you will be ready to transform the use of machines across a range of innovative and emerging industries.

As a mechanical engineering student, you will learn from leading experts how to analyse mechanical design using the principles of motion, energy and force to ensure the safety and reliability of products. You will also develop an understanding of how efficient systems and processes support the manufacture of products at a competitive cost.

During your four-year degree you will cover all aspects of mechanical engineering, including power generation, transport, building services, machinery, manufacturing, computer-aided design, advanced materials and environmental studies. Through these studies you will gain a comprehensive knowledge of how to design a mechanical component, a whole machine, a mechanical system and a mechanical process.

An embedded honours thesis will enable you to design your own research project in an area of your interest, complemented by a 12-week internship. It will give you invaluable industry experience and help you develop professional networks.

Mechanical engineers are found in almost every type of engineering, working across the aerospace, automotive, chemical, communication, computer and power generation industries. With an increasing need for mechanical engineers within the environmental, biomedical and nanotechnology fields, your skills and experiences will provide the foundations for a diverse career, with opportunities to innovate around every corner.

As a mechanical engineer, you’ll be involved in the design, management and maintenance of a diverse range of mechanical applications. These could include power generation and transport systems, environmental systems, renewable energy, computing and biomedical systems, advanced materials, manufacturing, oil and gas exploration, or vehicle and engine design.

The application of mechanical engineering knowledge has enormous potential, ensuring a high level of demand among employers in both commercial and industrial fields.
