Build on your workshop engineering skills

This course equips you with the basics of engineering before you specialise in one of two exciting streams - Civil Engineering or Mechatronic Engineering. In the Civil Engineering stream, you'll learn from and work with senior civil and structural engineers involved in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, airports, dams and reticulation systems. In the Mechatronic Engineering stream, you'll assist senior designers, production supervisors and engineers involved in the design and management of mechanical and mechatronic systems. Melbourne Polytechnic's dedicated state-of-the-art engineering facilities include a purpose built Building and Construction training centre, AutoCAD Training Centre, industrial robots and fully equipped workshops.

Graduate with specialised skills

Completion of this course creates exciting opportunities to enter the workforce or can put your on the path to further study. You'll have gained comprehensive practical experience in areas like 2D/3D/BIM drafting, solid modelling, design and construction principles, surveying, robotics and engineering mechanics, and graduate ready to join one of the most diverse professions in the world. From designing handheld devices like mobile phones to designing planes, skyscrapers, sewage systems and amusement park rides, there are countless places you can go with a qualification in engineering.

Entry requirements

  • Applicants must have successfully completed Year 12 of VCE studies or equivalent, including units in English and Mathematics.
  • Mature age students (non-VCE) with relevant experience may also apply.
  • Students who do not have the necessary prerequisite studies may be required to undertake additional bridging units of study in mathematics and communications.
