The Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical and Advanced Manufacturing) requires four years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time).
The first two years of the award will be undertaken at Flinders University. The latter 2 years will be taken at the University of South Australia (Mawson Lakes campus).
The Award will be conferred by the University of South Australia.
The first two years of the course are offered by the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics, within the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
The minimum requirements for consideration for entry to all undergraduate courses are specified in detail in the University Entry Requirements.
Successful completion of either SACE Stage 2 (Year 12) Mathematical Studies or Mathematical Methods is normally required for entry to the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical and Advanced Manufacturing). Knowledge of SACE Stage 2 (Year 12) Chemistry and Physics is assumed.
The course has been designed to provide graduates with:
- a strong foundation in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of engineering, particularly those relevant to the systematic development of mechanically engineered solutions
- an awareness of social, economic and environmental aspects of mechanical engineering
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a commitment to them
- well developed written and oral communication skills
- structured engineering work experience
- the ability to work professionally as an individual and as a member of multi-disciplinary teams
- an understanding of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so
- preparation for future management roles as professional engineers.
On completion of the award, students will be able to:
- competently use professional skills and knowledge in the systematic development of mechanically engineered solutions,
- apply their skills and knowledge in a professionally responsible manner
- communicate effectively with other engineers and the wider community using a wide range of communication technologies
- work professionally as an individual and in a team
- develop engineering solutions appropriate to the social, political, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied
- engage in the process of continuing learning needed to retain the necessary level of professional skills and knowledge in the areas of mechanical engineering
- contribute successfully to project management.
To qualify for the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical and Advanced Manufacturing) a student must complete 144 units (72 units at Flinders) with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, according to the program of study below.
Subject to passing all First and Second Year topics, students are guaranteed transfer to the University of South Australia to complete the remaining two years of their program. Any requests for transfer under different circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.
