Rapid developments in sustainable technology have led to an increasing demand for engineers who can design and operate environmentally sensitive systems.

We have have access to one of the country’s most prestigious Science and Technology Faculties, through Federation University (Both Gippsland and Ballarat campuses).

You won’t be stuck for choice!

There are three or four year undergraduate degrees as well as post graduate programs.

With a four-year degree, you will become a professional engineer and work at a theoretical level to isolate and define a required engineering outcome. You will then identify one or more potential solutions. The professional engineer will conceptualise ways to ensure the desired outcome is met and will then work closely with an engineering technologist to determine which is the best solution. You will oversee and potentially contribute to the construction process.

As an engineering technologist with a three-year degree, you will work with a professional engineer to put predetermined theory into practice and assist in identifying which solution will best deliver the required outcome. You will work in a hands-on role in the construction process.

There are four specialisations of Engineering available through FedUni:

Civil engineers are responsible for the design and construction of all types of structures/systems including:

• Dams
• Bridges
• Pipelines
• Roads
• Towers
• Railways
• Gas and water supply
• Sewerage systems
• Harbours
• Airports

It is the responsibility of the civil engineer to produce safe, economical and environmentally sound structures.

Mechatronic engineers apply mechanical, electronics and software design to create products and processes to meet market needs. Engineering knowledge and skills are required in sectors such as manufacturing and process automation, transportation (automotive, rails, aviation and navy), power production, mining and resources, agriculture and forestry. A small sample of the many job areas include:

• Robotics and process automation
• Data communication and networks
• Smart infrastructure
• Security systems
• Processing and packaging
• Scientific equipment design
• Self-diagnostic machinery
• Plant design and management

As a mechanical engineer you will apply the principles of physics and mechanical science to the design and construction of all forms of mechanical systems.

You will be involved in all aspects of design specification, development, research, evaluation, manufacture, installation, testing, operation, maintenance and management of machines and systems. This will include, but not be limited to, mechanical and mechatronic systems, automated systems and robotic devices, heat transfer processes, thermodynamic and combustion systems; and fluid and thermal energy systems.

With a vast array of career opportunities a mechanical engineer will quickly find work anywhere in the world.

Mining engineers work together with geologists to investigate and carry out the extraction of ore bodies and mineral deposits, as well as the extraction of non-metallic ores and fuels such as coal and uranium.

They are responsible for planning the safest and most cost effective way of removing minerals from the ground, rivers or the sea bed. They may be involved with designing, installing and supervising the use of mining machinery and equipment and for inspecting the progress of mining operations.

Mining engineers are responsible for protecting conditions for both people and the environment in the vicinity of mines.
