Engineering at UWA is relevant to the contemporary world of engineering, integrates knowledge, technical capability and practical skills to create exceptional graduates.

Our courses

World-class facilities

Discover EZONE – our multimillion-dollar dedicated innovation and technological hub for engineering and mathematical science students, with flexible workspaces for collaborative learning and industry interaction.

Preparing you for industry

The School of Engineering collaborates with industry leaders to develop practical courses to prepare you for a global engineering career. Our industry panels work directly with each of our disciplines to provide an external perspective on our teaching and researching programs and ensure they align with real-life working environments.

The panels consist of corporations such as Woodside, Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Chevron, as well as other smaller and diverse businesses, which certify our practices are consistent with industry and government objectives. These experts ensure UWA is keeping pace with technology changes and is up-to-date with local and global needs. This close collaboration means our industry knowledge remains relevant in a highly changing and ever-evolving profession.
