Head of School

Welcome to the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at UNSW Sydney

Professor Chun Wang, Head of SchoolIf you are thinking about embarking on a career in Mechanical Engineering, you’ve made a good choice and our School is an excellent place to start.

Mechanical engineering is a foundation engineering specialisation and one of the broadest. It forms the backbone of most industries and touches almost every facet of our lives. It’s a versatile profession to be a part of – and one where you can find yourself making a real difference to the world you live in. 

UNSW has the largest Mechanical Engineering school in Australia and we are currently undergoing some very significant changes.

Firstly, we recently launched a revised undergraduate program designed to give our students more choice, more flexibility, and the ability to keep their options open to the many different paths that engineering can take them as graduates. Regardless of which discipline your future lies in – mechanical, mechatronic, aerospace or manufacturing engineering – you will acquire lifelong skills that will enable you to excel in your future careers. Information about our teaching programs and courses can be found in the study with us section of the website – look for Undergraduate or Postgraduate, whichever suits you. 

Secondly, our brand new, world-leading research and teaching facilities provide our students and researchers with the best infrastructure to conduct amazing world-class projects like designing a robotic tractor to improve agricultural productivity for farmers, manufacturing strong and lightweight materials for aircraft to become lighter and capable of carrying more passengers, creating new bio-mechanical devices to improve health, and engineering new energy storage systems.  If you are interested in finding out more about our research, please take the time to explore our School's Research pages
