Do you want to make solar energy more efficient, create new technology in robotics or even develop materials to support the growth of human cells? Are you a highachieving student interested in becoming an innovator and a future leader in engineering? Our Research and Development (R&D) degree is the right choice for you. 

This elite engineering degree is unique in Australia and will give you access to an innovative structure that allows you to get involved in engineering research projects and advanced courses.  You will study fundamental engineering courses and complete your engineering major, while you are immersed in research groups covering mechatronics, solar energy, materials and manufacturing, computer vision or biomedical engineering.

Like our Bachelor of Engineering, the R&D degree is built on a ‘systems engineering’ framework, which means that you will learn how engineering disciplines work together. 


This program is accredited by Engineers Australia. You may also apply to practice in a number of other countries through the ‘Washington Accord.’ These include: USA, UK, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Hong Kong, South Africa, Japan, Germany, Singapore and Malaysia. It is recommended students confirm the accreditation requirements in their home country or state
