|School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
The School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at UNSW offers a Bachelor of Engineering program with plans in Aerospace Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Management, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering and Naval Architecture. Also offered are combined degree programs with Science or Arts and Bachelor/Master degree programs with Biomedical Engineering, Commerce or Engineering Science.
Plans of study which lead to the award of the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (BE), are designed to provide the appropriate academic training for the professional engineer in the fields of Aerospace Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Management, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering and Naval Architecture. The first two years of these plans are identical, whilst the third and fourth years of the plans contain a number of common courses. Elective courses provide for a limited degree of specialisation in the fourth year of the Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronic Engineering plans. The Aerospace Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Management, and Naval Architecture plans do not have elective components. Each student is required to submit a thesis at the end of the final year and to present a seminar on the topic of the thesis.
The School also offers combined programs with Science or Arts. These combined programs enable students to major in the area of computer science, materials science, mathematics, physics, statistics or another relevant field, in addition to studying their chosen engineering plan. Bachelor/Masters programs are also available.
No formal part-time programs are offered by the School. However, it is possible for students to undertake studies with a reduced load of courses. Students intending to take a reduced load are advised that very few undergraduate courses are offered in the evening.
For further information on the programs of study offered by the School, please refer to the relevant discipline entries in this online Handbook and to the School's website as below. We look forward to welcoming you to UNSW.
