In addition to providing training in conventional mechanical engineering subjects, the course structure introduces students to units of study that address sustainability including sustainable design and sustainable energy engineering. Graduates will be well equipped with broad-based skills that meet the demand of Australian industries and are conscious of the need to promote sustainable design and practices. Examples include mechanical and machinery design; manufacturing; energy production; and marketing and management activities. Skills gained are required in industries such as manufacturing, materials handling, automobile, aerospace, mining, building services and infrastructure development.
