Overview

This program will prepare students to be Engineers for the 21st century - to develop sustainable solutions to some of the planet's most challenging problems resulting from climate change and population growth. Students in the program will develop solutions to real-world problems based on industry needs. These include ways to adapt to climate change and create resilient societies, to enable the renewable energy transition, to secure our water and food supplies, to protect society from pollution and natural hazards and to redesign products to reduce waste. The degree provides students with the flexibility to specialise in their area of interest, including majors in either Climate Solutions, Renewable Energy or Smart Technologies or minors in either Humanitarian Engineering or Entrepreneurship.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental & Climate Solutions) is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 years. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia
