The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering fields of study offered through the School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering are -

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest areas of engineering. Mechanical engineers design and manufacture machinery and equipment for a wide range of uses; design and operate power plants; and calculate the economical combustion of fuels, the conversion of heat energy into mechanical power, and how mechanical power is used. 

Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering major combines courses in mechanical engineering with additional specialist study and project work in the aerospace and aviation industry. Aerospace engineering is concerned with the design, manufacture and operation of aircraft, launch vehicles, satellites, spacecraft and ground support facilities.

Mechanical & Materials Engineering

The Mechanical and Materials Engineering major combines studies in mechanical engineering with additional specialist study in materials engineering. Materials engineering is concerned with the selection, processing and development of materials to design and make products.

Mechatronics Engineering

Mechatronic engineers integrate mechanical engineering with electronics, computer systems and advanced controls in order to design and construct products and processes. Mechatronic engineers are typically involved with the design of automated and intelligent machines, including artificial intelligence systems, robotics, automated industrial machinery, and avionics, and are employed in areas including research and development, mining, aerospace and defence, or by government and industry groups.
