Study what interests you
Explore the areas of study available to you across the wide range of engineering disciplines. With over 20 study areas and even more disciplines you can choose from Aerospace, Biomedical, Renewable Energy and Food Technology to name a few.
Each study area offers a variety of courses, programs, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and research opportunities. It's up to you to decide which one is right for your needs.
Civil engineers work with every element of modern infrastructure. Structural engineering ensures structures are safe, durable, attractive and economical. Surveying supports all construction activity and infrastructure engineering in urban and rural environments. These three types of engineers often work closely and in overlapping capacities.
Computer Hardware Engineers design and develop computer systems as well as the hardware elements. It’s how we maintain our vast networks of computer technology and are able to develop new, efficient technologies like smart watches and smart phones that fold or bend.
Data Science is a multidisciplinary field of study that blends mathematical methods, statistics, computing, business decisions and communication. Data Science untangles the complex, interwoven webs of data using advanced technical and mathematical skills to deliver actionable insights for organisations.
Engineers have unique skills to identify sources of energy or resources that can be used in various ways to meet the needs of society. Mining resources helps us generate a range of energy sources, including renewable energy. You’ll learn how this industry is branching out into additional areas to fuel the transition to renewable sources of energy such as natural gas.
With so many exciting and innovative areas of engineering to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which area of engineering is right for you and your career aspirations. The Flexible First Year gives you the opportunity to explore the broad range of engineering specialisations on offer at UNSW before settling on a discipline that is right for you
Mechanical and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering are intertwined at all points in the process. Everything we use on a daily basis is mechanically engineered, and at one time manufactured. Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineers are vital for our future. You’ll apply scientific and engineering knowledge to machine-building in your studies.
How do we communicate information at a distance? How can you video call someone in another country? The answer: Telecommunications Engineering. Telecommunication Engineers design, build and manage systems that transmit these data signals to keep information flowing.
