CG21 - Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Specialisation)

About Engineering Technology (Specialisation)

Do you enjoy solving problems, and we don’t just mean mathematics? Are you curious about how things work? If you would like to be at the cutting edge of scientific and technological advancements, then becoming an engineering technologist will provide a challenging career where you can utilise these abilities and interests and turn ideas into reality.

As an engineering technologist you can focus on applications and interactions within systems. Technologists combine a sound engineering understanding with modern technology to be innovative by applying, modifying and adapting engineering practices in meeting the world’s challenges and problems for communities, society and the environment in general.

Civil engineers are typically involved in planning design and maintenance of physical infrastructure systems including the construction of buildings and bridges, transport and water resource systems, sewage and industrial waste systems, harbours and railways. 

Mechanical engineers are typically involved in planning, design, installation, maintenance and operation of machines, thermodynamic and combustion systems, fluid systems, materials handling systems, manufacturing equipment and process plant. .

Electrical engineers typically specialise in systems design, development and maintenance of systems associated with electrical power and energy including electricity generation and distribution, telecommunications, instrumentation and control, microprocessors and electronics.

CQUniversity engineering graduates are highly sought by all industry sectors with job offers often made even before students complete their studies.

Study Mode

Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available

Career Opportunities

Bachelor of Engineering Technology graduates enjoy a wide variety of challenging career options across a range of industries and government sectors. As an Engineering Technologist you will apply your problem-solving skills and knowledge of scientific fundamentals to the design, testing, inspection, adaptation, commissioning, management or operation of on-site equipment, plant and sustainable systems.

Engineering Technologists, having specialised in one of the disciplines of civil (structural), civil (municipal/transportation), mechanical (process), mechanical (energy), mechanical (design), electrical (electrical power) or electrical (control), find employment in national and international public and private industry sectors including the energy, transportation, manufacturing, process, construction, mining and education industries.

The Bachelor of Engineering Technology program is based on the project-based learning philosophy which offers the opportunity to learn in context. This approach is designed to produce work-ready graduates with industry-relevant skills.

Program Aims

On successful completion of a CQUniversity Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Specialisation) program graduates should have an:

  • ability to apply knowledge of basic science and engineering fundamentals;
  • ability to communicate effectively, not only with others in engineering practice but also with the community at large;
  • in-depth technical competence in one engineering discipline;
  • ability to undertake problem identification and formulation, and to identify, apply and adapt appropriate procedures, techniques and resources in their resolution;
  • in-depth knowledge and understanding of appropriate technology and its applications and evolution in equipment, installation and system design and operation;
  • ability to function effectively as an individual and in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with the capacity to be a leader or manager as well as an effective team member;
  • understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the Engineering Technologist and the need for sustainable development;
  • understanding of the principles of sustainable design and development;
  • understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and commitment to them; and
  • expectation of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so.

Program Structure

This program is aimed at the education of engineering technologists in one of seven specialisations:

  • Civil
    • Structural
    • Municipal/Transportation
  • Mechanical
    • Process
    • Energy
    • Design
  • Electrical
    • Electrical Power
    • Electrical Control

All students (except students entering with advanced standing) entering the program will undertake a common first two years (assuming progression at a part-time rate). These first two years of the program may be studied internally or externally. The later years may be studied externally with some courses also available internally (students should check individual course availability).

Courses Offered

Common years 1 and 2

NoteThe recommended study progressions shown below are for a part-time student i.e. 12 units of credit per term (courses may be either 6 or 12 units of credit). Year 1 and 2 courses will be available both internally and externally. Students are advised to check availability of Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 courses.

All students enrol in a common first two years and then select a specialist stream. In these common years students must complete.

PLEASE NOTE:

* There is a compulsory 5 day residential school for ENEG11001 Engineering Skills 1 held during Week One of Term 1. Non attendance may result in forced withdrawal from the course
