Why study with us?

Mechanical engineering at the University of NewcastleMechanical Engineering Students

Mechanical engineers work to improve the design, safety and energy efficiency of wind turbines, ships, aircraft, trains, cars, mining equipment, lifts, air conditioners and much more. The profession is also playing an important role in environmental sustainability with mechanical engineers developing technology to support the shift from a carbon economy to a renewable energy system.

The mechanical engineering discipline at the University of Newcastle is ranked in the top 150 universities in the world by QS World Universities Ranking (2013). In 2012, we received the highest possible ranking in Australia for our research in the field of Mechanical Engineering (Australian Research Council 2012 ERA Rankings).

When you study mechanical engineering your learning will be led by an academic team recognised internationally for their ground-breaking research and industry currency. Under their leadership, this diverse mechanical engineering degree will equip you with the essential knowledge and practical skills you need to pursue a career in this innovative and evolving industry.

This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and many other affiliated international organisations, through the Washington Accord. Students who successfully complete the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) are eligible to apply for membership to Engineers Australia.

Top Marks for Teaching

When you study with us, you will be inspired by innovative teachers who are recognised nationally and internationally in their fields of research and industry.
