If you are interested in creatively applying the best of science, technology, computing, electronics and networking to real-world systems, then engineering at Victoria is for you. Our hands-on degrees will enable you to develop your ideas into programmes, tangible devices and products.

Victoria's Bachelor of Engineering with Honours BE(Hons) is a four year professional degree. Although the BE(Hons) is an academically challenging course, it also develops the management skills and knowledge essential in the rigorous environment where professional engineers are employed. Work placements of 800 hours are a key part of the degree and along with group, research or industry driven projects, give practical experience to the theoretical aspects of engineering design and development.

To ensure our students develop breadth as well as depth in their academic programmes, three courses outside the discipline are required in the degree. These can be as broad as biology, psychology or a modern language.

Alternatively, students may study a Bachelor of Science (BSc) majoring in Computer Science or Electronics and Computer Systems. The BSc shares much of the design and implementation focus of the BE(Hons), but is more flexible and takes only three years. The BSc majors may also easily be combined with any other major in the BSc programme, such as Mathematics or Biology.

The undergraduate Bachelor of Engineering degree has three specialisations, of which students choose one:

  • Electronic and Computer System Engineering
  • Network Engineering
  • Software Engineering.

The postgraduate Master of Engineering (ME) and PhD in Engineering degrees build on our international research and make full use of our state of the art technology.

Our staff are enthusiastic and committed teachers and incorporate the latest knowledge into their teaching. Many are internationally recognised as leaders in their field, and can provide experience and guidance in a wide range of projects from measuring the thickness of Antarctic ice with magnetic resonance techniques to designing orthotics for stroke patients or developing three-dimensional electronic mirrors.
