Bachelor of Science (Mechanical Engineering)

Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design, manufacture, and operational processes of anything that moves, from the tiniest, simplest micro-particles to the largest, most complex spacecraft and everything in between. As a mechanical engineer, you have a skill set that is applicable to many industries in the world, including automotive, transport, manufacturing, power generation, medical, consumer goods, and more. This practical qualification will ensure you graduate job-ready as a mechanical engineering technologist. Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest mechanical engineering technologies.

  • Admission Requirements
  • English Requirements

Mechanical engineering is the field of engineering that applies physics and the material sciences to develop machinery. Mechanical engineers use the principles of force, energy, and motion to improve the safety, efficiency, and technological advancement of the world around us.

With this qualification, you will have acquired the essential knowledge which underpins both this and other fields of engineering. More importantly, you will have become a mechanical engineering technologist.

The degree consists of a combination of core units, sub-discipline specific ‘stream’ units, industrial work experience, and a final year project. The program duration is three years full-time. We deliver units over two semesters per year, and you will take 4.5 units per semester. There will be a short mid-semester break and extended breaks between semesters.

Work-Integrated Learning

EIT’s Bachelor of Science programs require students to undertake 240 hours of paid or unpaid professional work-integrated learning.  This can incorporate paid or unpaid internships, site visits, contributing to industry projects, and networking activities.

In undertaking an internship, students will interact with employees and become exposed to organizational policy and culture. You will familiarize yourself with organizational communication procedures, a variety of engineering disciplines, and obtain insight and practical aptitude in projects from the planning phase to completion.

If you already have some work experience in the relevant engineering field, you may apply to have credit granted by completing the associated recognition of prior learning form.

Entry into our on-campus study mode requires applicants to hold:

  1. A Year 12 Australian Senior Certificate of Education (or equivalent for international students), completed within the past two years, with the following level of achievement in maths:
  • WA – WACE scaled score of 50.0 or more.
  • ACT – a scaled mark of 125 or more
  • NSW – performance Band 2 or above
  • QLD – a level of Sound Achievement (S) or above
  • SA/NT – a grade of C- or higher or a Subject achievement score of 10 or more
  • TAS – an award of Satisfactory Achievement or above
  • VIC – a study score of 25 or above

A minimum ATAR score is not an admissions requirement.

Applicants who have completed Year 12 (or equivalent for International Students) more than two years ago will also need to show relevant work experience in the field of study applied for; OR

  1. A relevant (to the sub-discipline) Engineering AQF Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Associate Degree (or higher) with successful completion of all Maths units/modules; OR
  2. An overseas qualification equivalent to Point 2 above from a structured program of learning that leads to the full or partial achievement of an officially accredited qualification undertaken at a tertiary institution such as a university, government technical college, or government recognized private college (EIT assesses overseas qualifications using Australian Government guidelines to determine their comparability to qualifications); OR
  3. International Baccalaureate (IB) Completion with a minimum score of 24 including English and Maths completion; OR
  4. Foundation studies or bridging course completion in a relevant discipline with completion of Mathematics and English. e.g., Engineering enabling course; AND
  5. Satisfactory English language proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education (or equivalent for international students); OR
  6. A specified level of achievement in a recognized English language test such as IELTS  at a score of at least 6.0 (with no individual band score less than 5.5); or  (or equivalent) as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy
