Purpose of the Program

The purpose of this program is to:

  • provide learning experiences that provide you, as a graduate of this program, with the knowledge and skills essential for a professional career in computer and network engineering,
  • prepare you, on graduation from this program, to be ready to take up employment in computer and network engineering and related industries. The related industries include the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, computing, resource, defence, and primary industries.

You will undertake a capstone experience in the final year courses OENG1167 Engineering Capstone Project Part A and OENG1168 Engineering Capstone Project Part B, in which you will conduct a research project that can be analytical, experimental, design or computational in nature (or some combination).

This program is primarily delivered in face-to-face mode at the City Campus.
