Course Description

Mechanical Engineering addresses the analysis and development of technological systems involving motions, and permits humanity to harness the energy and forces that exist in nature, providing for the needs of society.  These systems may comprise mechanisms or machines made up of moving components or involve fluid flow within or around solid structures to impart forces and energy interactions.  These could range from micro – mechanical devices through to massive power generating turbines.

The work of a mechanical engineer could include the design and specification of components or entire systems, design and planning of manufacturing processes, plant operation and maintenance, consulting, research and development, and management.  These tasks are common to a wide range of industries such as power generation, air conditioning, mining, mineral and material processing, transport, water supply anf their support industries.

The wide breadth of knowledge and skills possessed by mechanical engineers means they are highly sought after across a wide range of engineering enterprises – from small companies to consultancies and large multi – national companies.  Skills can be applied in a variety of roles including design, maintenance, industrial operation and project management.  The character of Curtin’s Mechanical Engineering Course is such that its graduates are in widely regarded for their knowledge, skill and adaptability by employers.
