External accreditation and industry links

External Accreditation

The Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) (Honours) is fully accredited by Engineers Australia (EA) and the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).  EA and HKIE are, respectively, the Australian and Hong Kong profesional bodies responsible for the accreditation of higher education programs that prepare students to practise as professional engineers. 

EA represents Australia, and HKIE represents Hong Kong, as signatories to the Washington Accord.  Many other countries are signatories to this international agreement for professional engineers. This means that the program is internationally recognised and graduates are able to practise as professional engineers in many countries around the world.

Industry Links

The School of Engineering and its offshore partner (VTC, Hong Kong) have extensive links with industry, particularly through research projects and consulting services.  In a number of cases, industry has provided direct support by donating laboratory equipment.

You may be able to undertake an industry sponsored design project in your final two semesters (as part of Engineering Design 4A and 4B).
