Course description

Bachelor of Science (Mechanical Engineering)

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.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Maths Bridging Test/Exam

Maths bridging test/exam (non-proctored/invigilated): to be completed by all Higher Education students (online and on-campus) during orientation week, to be administered through Moodle. If a student fails the initial test they must complete EIT’s 3 week bridging course (online) and then take the test again (non-proctored/invigilated). If the student fails again they will be considered a student at risk and managed in accordance with EIT’s Student at Risk Policy.
