MDDU-MCENG v.1 Mechanical Engineering Double Degree Major (BEng/BCom)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
Mechanical Engineering addresses the conception, design, manufacture, control, maintenance and management of any system in which motion is a key feature. The system may comprise moving solid elements - components - combined to create a mechanism or machine. Alternatively, it may involve a fluid flowing within or around a solid structure. Mechanical Engineering permits humanity to harness the energy and forces that exist in nature, providing for the needs of society. The range of Mechanical Engineering is therefore vast: machines from the size of micro-mechanical devices through to massive power generating turbines are covered by the discipline. Similarly, the flight and performance of modern aircraft is largely an accomplishment of Mechanical Engineering. The work of a mechanical engineer could include the design and specification of components or entire systems, design and planning of manufacturing processes, plant operation and maintenance, consulting, research and development, and management. These tasks are common to a wide range of industries such as power generation, mining, mineral processing, transport, water supply and their support industries.
Graduates fulfil the stage one competencies stipulated by Engineers Australia (EAust) as the pathway to chartered engineer status (CPEng)
