Why study the Bachelor of Engineering?

The University of Queensland's engineering program offers the largest choice of engineering programs in Queensland, with a large number of distinct majors, double majors and minors. The flexible curriculum equips students to work in both established and newly emerging areas of engineering. Students develop their understanding by applying science and engineering principles to engineering problems of commercial importance. In addition to technical expertise, the program emphasises essential workplace skills such as communication, teamwork, project management, problem-solving and lifelong learning.
The UQ engineering degree is widely accredited and respected and this degree equips students to work both in Australia and overseas.

What you can study

The range of options available through majors, dual and extended majors, minors or dual degrees, gives students the flexibility to pursue fields of study to the depth or breadth of knowledge required. Dual majors and minors are a set of courses that takes advantage of elective provisions within the program, thereby not lengthening the program duration. Extended majors offer a more concentrated program of study, while minors offer study in an area of engineering study additional to but complementary with the major. These study alternatives give students a competitive advantage in achieving their career aspirations. Most engineering majors can be undertaken as double majors or with a dual degree. With the majority of majors, students can also choose an additional minor (options are detailed in the individual majors outlines).
