Engineering minors

Complement your engineering specialisation with a minor and tailor your studies to explore your interests and expand your career opportunities.

If you are completing a single degree course, you can use electives to complete one of the engineering minors from a different engineering discipline and/or approved minors from Arts, Business and Economics, IT or Science.

An engineering minor will diversify your skill set and add versatility. Gain knowledge in another field outside of your chosen specialisation and understand other engineering disciplines to incorporate technical skills to deliver better solutions. You’ll have a more holistic approach to project engineering and be well-positioned to communicate across specialisation areas. Skills highly valued and sought after by industry.

A minor has four units studied over at least two years and is listed on your transcript. Minors from another faculty are undertaken in year 1 and 2, and engineering minors are completed in year 3 or 4 of your studies.
