About Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical) / Bachelor of Business at University of Newcastle, Australia

Where do mechanical engineers find jobs? Everywhere.

At UON we train engineers capable of solving the world's greatest challenges. As a mechanical engineer, you may help address the world's future energy needs by taking biomass, wind and tidal power solutions to the next level. You could design self-driving farm machinery for ultra efficient food production. Or tackle health issues by building revolutionary biomechanical solutions for people with disabilities.

What is mechanical engineering? Mechanical engineers design, manufacture and optimise specialist machines and processes. They solve important problems using robotics, new advanced materials, the fundamental laws of energy generation and transmission, and the computer control of physical systems - from nano to mega-tonne scale. They work on everything from power plants, to air conditioners, aircraft engines and racecars.
