Are you interested in radar, communication, or weapons systems? Do you want to be the driving force behind the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) position at the forefront of technology? If these scenarios get your circuits firing, then studying a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Honours) at UNSW Canberra at ADFA could be for you.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Mechanical (Canberra)

Do you enjoy the challenge of figuring out how things work? Are you interested in the diverse range of equipment used by the Australian Defence Force (ADF), including ships, tanks and weapon systems? If this sounds like you, why not study a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering at UNSW Canberra? 

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Sydney)

Engineers work in a range of roles across all different types of industries, from civil engineering to environmental, computer science to petroleum engineering – the possibilities are endless. The type of engineer you’ll become often depends on the specialisation you choose in this degree. This degree offers 19 engineering specialisations across different engineering disciplines.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Quantum Engineering) (Sydney)

Quantum Engineers specialise in how high-frequency, nanometer-scale electronics can be made to harness quantum nature. When you study Quantum Engineering at UNSW, you'll develop the skillset required for the next generation of microelectronics, microwave and telecommunications engineers.

In this bachelor's degree, you'll learn how to work with a range of quantum systems, from high-frequency signals to very small electronic circuits.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Materials Science) (Sydney)

Materials science is the foundation for creating high-performance materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. In this degree, you’ll learn about developing high-performance materials that are lighter, greener and stronger – for use in every aspect of technology. You’ll also develop the theoretical and practical skills to improve materials for aerospace, automotive, biomedical and information technology-based industries.
