Why study engineering at Deakin?
Industry learning in engineering
Engineering students can experience the workplace throughout their course of study. You may choose subjects which take you into the field, place you in industry or offer internships.
Industry Based Learning (IBL) involves working full or part time in industry as part of your degree program and plays a valuable role in preparing for graduate employment.
The placement is incorporated into a unit of study and credited towards your degree, and provides the opportunity to apply and consolidate knowledge gained at university, experience workplace culture and work practices, explore career options and develop a professional network.
As a Deakin engineering student you will have access to recently refurbished, fully-equipped laboratories and cutting-edge computer-aided software that is used in modern industrial workplaces.
Accessible lecturers help you get the most out of your university education and provide a friendly learning environment.
Research and teaching excellence
Learn from world-standard reserchers. Engineering at Deakin is different as it is research led, rather than simply research informed. Deakin is a significant leader in the number of engineering focused research areas, most notably manufacturing and materials.
Engineering research themes: Sustainable Infrastructure, Advanced Design and Manufacturing, Health and Education.
