WHY Engineering AT UTS?


OUR DIFFERENCE

Nothing will prepare you better than real industry experience. That’s why we offer hands-on, practice-based learning.

A STEP AHEAD

Theory is great, but hands-on experience sets you apart. Our industry partnerships enable us to offer you working knowledge throughout your degree. And you’ll study in world-class, purpose-built teaching spaces and laboratories.

CONNECTIONS THAT COUNT

Would access to more than 1,000 companies help your career to boom? Of course it would. UTS also has its own internship team to help you turn access into valuable work experience.

THE WORLD IS WATCHING

Put yourself in the right place from day one. We may be young, but we’re making our mark quickly. Among universities under the age of 50, UTS is already the No.1 ranked university in Australia and No.8 in the world. And you couldn't study in a better location. 40% of Australia’s creative industry head offices call our neighbourhood home.

EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS

Every door in the world is open to you right now. Keep it that way. Use our Global Exchange, International Studies course or Beyond UTS International Leadership Development (BUiLD) program with its overseas volunteering placements, to lay down the foundations for a global career.

DO IT YOUR WAY

We get it, you can’t hit ‘pause’ on life when you start university. Find the timetable that suits you with our day/evening classes, summer school and part-time study options.

This program is a comprehensive preparation for careers in the professional practice of engineering. Students learn to deal with complex systems and manage large-scale projects using the most appropriate emerging technologies.

The course offers an authentic, professionally focused and practice-based education program with two sessions of internship (normally paid) in a real workplace setting. A number of the areas of study are available with explicit specialisations. For example, Civil Engineering is available with specialisations in Structures and Construction. Students can also focus on or broaden their studies by completing electives. By appropriate choice of electives, students can gain knowledge in a second engineering discipline, obtain a sub-major in a different field or study postgraduate degree subjects and apply for credit towards an engineering master's degree. The concept has been strongly endorsed in wide-ranging industry consultations. Interaction between work experience and academic curriculum is very strong, giving the program a depth that no other full-time academic course can match.

Career options depend on the major chosen.

WORLD-CLASS FACILITIES


The newly built Engineering and IT Building is a space where you can collaborate, create, innovate and learn. The building is itself a living breathing laboratory, embedded with wireless sensors to monitor things like air quality, noise and temperature. We have spaces for you to learn, study alone or in groups, meet with your tutors, collaborate with industry or just hang-out.

WE'RE FAMOUS FOR OUR INTERNSHIPS


At UTS, you’ll learn the theory, but then in your second and fourth years, you’ll go out into industry to put that theory into practice. You’ll develop industry contacts before you graduate and bring back a world of knowledge to your studies that you can only gain from practical experience. It’s no wonder 78% of our graduates are employed before graduating. Oh and did we mention you’re likely to get paid while on internship?

UTS students have a unique advantage. They gain real-world experience during their internships that makes them stand out among graduates. They're ready to make serious contributions to any organisation.
