The UNSW Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is designed to equip you for a career as a professional engineer. We provide you with a solid background in mathematics, natural sciences and computing that will prepare you for learning knowledge and skills in an engineering discipline specialisation. You will get the chance to apply yourself to engineering design and enquiry projects, professional engineering practice, engineering and technical management and conduct research towards your thesis project.
