  • gain highly desirable knowledge and skills in a future proof industry
  • work with the latest computer aided software.
  • learn how to design systems from the ground up
  • become proficient in engineering research, design and management
  • contribute your own ideas during site visits field work
  • participate in numerous Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities
  • learn professional ideologies such as professional ethics, expectations and teamwork
  • choose to specialise in either Robotics and Artificial Intelligence or Network and Software Engineering.
  • be able to participate in the Engineers without Borders Challenge
  • gain unrivalled access to industry and government stakeholders
  • build extensive professional networks
  • earn a globally recognised qualification
  • be in-demand

Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

WIL is an integral component of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) course as it offers students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience and build professional relationships through real work, or work-like placements.

As part of this course students will be invited to also participate in the Engineers without Borders Challenge which is a humanitarian-focused activity offered in all UC engineering honours degrees.

To ensure our students have access to the right people and places, UC works hard to foster close industry connections and regularly engages with industry partners who possess both the skills and experience to provide specialised knowledge and training opportunities.

All course content is reviewed annually by our Course Advisory Group which is made up of a panel of highly qualified and respected industry experts.
