It will demonstrate to potential employers your skills in planning and undertaking a complex body of work within deadlines.
To graduate from this course you must have completed 480 hours of exposure to professional engineering practice and completed senior first-aid training.
Professional practice can comprise a combination of real-world experiences. Examples include paid and voluntary work placements, university-based experience in industrial projects, attending extra-curricular technical lectures and workshops, and industry site visits in Australia and/or overseas.
Please refer to the handbook for more course information.
The Bachelor of Engineering begins with the national award-winning Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. This enables you to explore your options before selecting your engineering major at the end of your first year.
The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that reflects engineering practice. The program won a national award in the category of Programs that Enhance Learning for ‘The First Year Experience’.
Curtin University is dedicated to the enhancement of teaching and research and to the pursuit of excellence and innovative applications of engineering technology as a contribution to the advancement of scientific knowledge, understanding and community relevance.
