The Education Destination : Australia The Education Destination 2012
40 >AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 You can specialise in a broad field or niche subject area to match your goals. Areas of engineering study include: civil; mechanical and automotive; electrical and electronic; chemical; aviation technology and aerospace; software and digital systems; ocean, marine and naval; architectural; environmental; geoinformation systems; computational; mechatronic; pharmaceutical; biomedical; mining and energy; petroleum; renewable energies; photovoltaics and solar energy; research and development; and innovation and entrepreneurship. In the field of information technology, degrees are in: computer science; software engineering; information technology; telecommunications; artificial intelligence; business information systems; internet computing and e-commerce; and multimedia and interactive entertainment. For the best skills knowledge and training, Australian universities have the latest technology and equipment. For example, Monash University has the largest wind tunnel in the southern hemisphere; a world-class wave tank which simulates the action of any large body of water; microscopy and microanalysis equipment; and access to Synchrotron, Australia’s largest scientific and engineering facility. A DOUBLE DEGREE TO MEET YOUR PROFESSIONAL GOALS Australian universities offer double (combined) degrees at the bachelor level. This means you can undertake two degrees to tailor your engineering or IT qualification for a particular discipline or industry. The two degrees are completed jointly in substantially less time than would be needed to complete them separately. You can combine an engineering or IT degree with a bachelor degree in another discipline, such as science, mathematics, arts, law, economics or finance. For example, you can do a Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Business to enhance your engineering knowledge with skills in business and management. TRADITIONAL AND EMERGING DISCIPLINES Mainstream engineering was originally divided into the four broad disciplines of chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, with several branches in each discipline. Australian universities and vocational institutions offer courses across a broad range of traditional and emerging disciplines. You can choose from courses in the following areas and specialise in particular subjects to meet your career goals. • Aerospace Engineering • Agricultural Engineering • Biomedical Engineering • Building Services Engineering • Chemical Engineering • Coastal and Ocean Engineering • Electrical Engineering • Environmental Engineering • Industrial Engineering • Marine Engineering • Materials Engineering • Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering • Minerals and Metallurgical Engineering • Mining Engineering • Resource Engineering • Risk Engineering ‘For the best skills knowledge and training, Australian universities have the latest technology and equipment.’
