Engineering Degree Courses

Distance education for engineering.

Why study engineering online? Australian universities allow you to complete engineering degrees without having to regularly travel to a campus.

  • Online courses allow engineering students to do the academic components of a program away from campus.
  • Any practical parts can be completed at occasional residential schools.

Engineers apply knowledge and skill to solve practical problems and extend the technology frontier. With engineering fields growing, you have plenty of options for pursuing a successful career.

An engineering education will exercise your brain, developing your ability to think logically and to solve problems. These are skills that will be valuable throughout your life – and not only when you're solving engineering problems.
