More engineering degree specialisations than anywhere else
At UNSW you can explore more than 25 undergraduate engineering degrees, and that’s before you add any flexi or dual degrees (also known as combined or concurrent degrees).
Have a look at the range below and then click through to find more information about what areas of engineering you’ll study and the degree options you have.
Alternatively, you can download our latest undergraduate brochure from the Publications section.
Those who are interested in taking their study to the next level might consider extending their bachelor degree by combining it with another degree or, in some cases, by completing a masters program.
The Flexible First Year program is ideal for students who know they want to be an engineer but are unsure which direction to take.
UNSW Engineering has introduced a new Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree program to start in 2015. Visit this page to learn about the program's rules and objectives.
Aerospace Engineering studies design, development, construction, testing and manufacture of aircraft and spacecraft.
Bioinformatics applies computing and mathematical strategies to biological and genetic information.
Biomedical Engineering approaches problems in medicine and life sciences analyses them and solves them using engineering.
Chemical Engineering covers the design, creation and optimising of systems and tools used in chemical, industrial, biological and environmental processes.
Civil Engineering designs and constructs society's essential infrastructure to meet the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, water and energy needs, and urban development.
Combining a major in Civil Engineering and a minor in Architecture, students learn to be conceptual thinkers and collaborate with other professionals for the best results.
Computer Engineering covers the theory, design, development and application of computer systems in consumer electronics, transportation systems, medical equipment, telecommunications etc.
Computer science combines computer programming, data structures and algorithms with other disciplines including commerce, maths, physics and languages.
Electrical Engineering entails research, design, development, manufacturing and management of complex systems for many different uses.
Environmental Engineering studies the environmental impact of engineering activities, students learn to identify environmental problems and help develop effective solutions.
Food science and technology studies the biological, chemical and physical sciences to understand everything about food.
Geoinformation specialists work with teams of other professionals to analyse complex situations, visualise problems and provide ‘spatial’ solutions.
Industrial Chemistry covers optimising complex chemical processes in environmental management, industry and essential services such as water delivery.
Manufacturing Engineering applies scientific and engineering knowledge to the development, manufacture and distribution of all types of products.
Mechanical Engineering covers the design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of tools and equipment used in many industries.
Mechatronic Engineering combines mechanical design skills, computing skills and knowledge of control systems, microprocessors and electronics to design and build intelligent machines.
Mining Engineering studies the safe, economic and environmentally responsible recovery, processing, marketing and financial management of mineral resources.
Naval Architecture covers the design, construction and operation of all types of ships and marine vehicles, including commercial, recreational and military vessels.
Petroleum Engineering applies practical science to the challenges and problems associated with oil and gas exploration, drilling and production.
Photovoltaic Engineering studies the manufacture and use of solar cells to create electricity to power virtually anything electrical.
Renewable Energy Engineering explores ways to make the best use of renewable energy technologies including solar thermal systems, photovoltaics, wind and biomass.
Software Engineering includes the design and implement of specific, reliable, efficient and secure software systems for a multitude of purposes.
Surveying covers the use of hi-tech measurement tools to precisely map the natural and built environment in support of construction, engineering and sustainable development.
