Mechanical engineering is the design of technology involving physical motion. Mechanical engineers use thermal, fluid, energy and material sciences to design, manufacture and maintain systems, such as heating and cooling in buildings, vehicle safety structures, aircraft power units, energy generation, mining equipment and medical implant devices. This course provides you with analytical and scientific expertise and management skills to design mechanical systems and manage teams in a broad range of applications, which reflect the many sectors of the economy where mechanical engineers are employed. In the final years, you will be involved with industry-based projects and practical laboratories to prepare you for entry to the profession, or as a pathway into research or further learning.
Graduates are eligible for registration under Mechanical branch with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
The indicative course fees shown here applies to students studying on-campus in Malaysia for the relevant year only. They are based on a standard study load per year. However, please note that fees are assessed according to a student’s study load in each semester, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted.
- Course objectives, course learning outcomes, course structure, units of study, career opportunities and professional recognition.
The following course educational objectives define the achievements of Swinburne graduates in their professional engineering career a few years after graduation.
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
At the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Honours) course, graduates will be able to: demonstrate the attainment of the following Mechanical Swinburne Engineering Competencies, required for external professional recognition:
For the completion of Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Honours), students are required to complete a total of 32 units (400 credit points) consisting of:
* Outcome unit – completion demonstrates the attainment of course learning outcomes
† Honours merit unit – results are used in the honours merit calculation
In the final year, students will be required to undertake two Final Year Research Project units (capstone experiences) which helps meet professional accreditation requirements.
Students are required to complete EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering (non-credit point unit), a 12-week approved relevant industrial practical experience before the commencement of the last semester of study.
Mechanical Engineering graduates may find employment in a variety of areas in industry and commerce, such as automotive, aviation, transport, power, manufacturing, materials processing, appliance production, mechanical building services, oil and gas, mining and raw material conversion. Roles may include design, development, testing, innovation, project management, planning, research, quality control, and engineering management.
Graduates are eligible to register as Graduate Engineers with Board of Engineering Malaysia (BEM) and to apply for graduate membership with Engineers Australia (EA).
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
