Think solving tomorrow’s problems with Engineering at Murdoch


Work on a real engineering project with industry partners in your honours year.

Finding solutions to real-world engineering problems means thinking outside the box and using a high level of problem solving skills. You’ll gain these skills at Murdoch through theoretical training from experts in your field, and hands-on experience with industry partners during your honours project.

With an Engineering degree at Murdoch, you’ll have the flexibility to choose the field of engineering that you want to specialise in.
