The Bachelor of Engineering (Engineering Scholars Program) is available to students who have achieved an ATAR score of 80.00 (or equivalent). It is designed to extend high-achieving students by providing them with opportunities to work with Deakin’s leading researchers and industry partners on cutting-edge projects. Students will be assigned a mentor and have additional opportunities for paid industry internships or research placements.
In Deakin’s Bachelor of Engineering you undertake common subjects in your first year before choosing to specialise in Civil, Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical or Mechatronics and Robotics engineering. This format allows you to make a more informed decision and gain a broad base of knowledge in engineering.
The course places great emphasis on the practical application of engineering and scientific principles to produce industry-ready engineers, immediately employable and capable of adapting to an ever-changing future. It is designed to maximise your employment prospects, meeting both your needs and those of the engineering profession. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Engineering you will become a life-long learner capable of building your career upon a solid foundation of knowledge.
You will learn generic skills including comprehension and communication; technical report writing and presentation; project management; entrepreneurship; innovation and leadership; an understanding of the ethical basis of the engineering profession and practice; developing an understanding of contemporary technical and professional issues in the practice of engineering; and an understanding of complex problems and producing innovative solutions beneficial to their organisation and society.
You will also learn specific skills such as a sound, fundamental understanding of the scientific principles underlying technology; understanding the basic principles underlying the management of physical, human and financial resources; acquiring the mathematical and computational skills necessary for the solution of theoretical and practical problems and for meeting future changes in technology; and an understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the professional engineer.
Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
