Interested in Engineering?

The following are examples of amazing engineering programs

Charles Sturt University

Charles Sturt University (CSU) offers an innovative civil and structural engineering program like no other in Australia or the world.

Forget studying semester-long subjects, taking exams, or listening to long lectures. Through the CSU ‘Topic Tree’ model, students study bite-sized content, and skills and knowledge on demand.

The engineering program is offered at the Bathurst campus (NSW) and students complete four-years of paid work placement and graduate with a Bachelor and Master level qualification,

Swinburne University

Swinburne offers the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Professional) degree. This amazing program guarantees 12-months of paid industry experience. Whilst most engineering degrees offer 12-weeks of non-paid industry placement, this degree is an attractive alternative and will increase graduate employment prospects in a competitive market,

Victoria University

Victoria University offers engineering degrees in Civil, Architectural, Mechanical and Electrical & Electronic. They have a unique learning and teaching model called the ‘VU Block Model’ and are the first Australian university to offer this. Students study their subjects consecutively (one at a time) instead of concurrently (like you do in the VCE),


UNSW offers the amazing co-op program. Recipients are awarded a large scholarship (around $20,000 per annum) and complete industry placements, leadership training, networking, and professional development. The program is highly competitive and applications close 30 September,
