Students selected into the Engineering Scholars Program enrol in the Bachelor of Engineering S367 course structure for administrative purposes. Please refer to S367 Bachelor of Engineering for the Course Structure.
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.
Deakin Engineering courses are designed to maximise student employment prospects, producing industry-ready engineers, who are immediately employable, and capable of adapting to an ever changing future. The program is offered in four key areas - Civil; Electrical and Electronics; Mechanical; and Mechatronics and Robotics.
Civil: Graduates may work in areas specialising in design, construction and project management of roads, airports, railways, and harbours; water supply and sewerage systems; water authorities, local government bodies, public works departments and as consulting engineers.
Mechanical: The automotive industry, in particular, has been involved in the design of Deakin's mechanical engineering degree, and graduates can look forward to a high level of employment in this industry and supplier companies, as well as other leading manufacturing and design companies. Other industries where graduates may be employed include: aircraft; ship-building; aerospace; railroad.
Mechatronics and Robotics: Graduates can be employed as electronic control systems engineers or robotics engineers, and may work in areas including: factory control; automation; control system design; aircraft control and navigation industry; automated vehicles and automotive industry; advanced manufacturing industries.
Applicants should have successfully completed VCE or equivalent. Refer to the VTAC Guide for the latest pre-requisite information www.vtac.edu.au
Those aged 21 or over on 1 January and who do not hold VCE or equivalent should apply under Alternative Admission. This category is open to those who do not satisfy normal entrance requirements, but can demonstrate relevant work or life experience.
Applications for Trimester 2 and Trimester 3 must be made directly to the University through the Applicant Portal. For information on the application process and closing dates, see the Apply web page. Please note that closing dates may vary for individual courses.
