I would love to design processes that bring a simple idea into mass production through a completed assembly. I find this amazing and it would be considered a dream job.

What's it all about?

■  This degree applies scientific and engineering knowledge to the development, manufacture and distribution of all types of products. When we say that a Manufacturing Engineer "develops" products, we literally mean they develop the product, as well as the machines that create it.

What does it include?

■  The best of both worlds - Mechanical Engineering with a specialisation in Manufacturing Engineering. It involves a set of electives focused on industrial technology and automation, finance and decision-making, product process design, computer aided design and manufacturing. To get you work ready, you'll apply your skills through 60-days approved industry training.

Where will you work?

■  You could work in a wide variety of manufacturing industries, such as automotive, defence and aerospace - any industry that turns a raw product (like plastic, aluminium or steel) into something. Many opt to create their own start-up, or work in traditional mechanical engineering roles, too.

Dual degrees

■  Dual degrees are a great way of graduating with a wider breadth of knowledge, better preparing you for your future career. For more information, visit our dual degrees page to find one that suits your interests.
