Course Information

Now you can combine the creative skills of industrial design with the practical solutions of mechanical engineering. This double degree will arm you with the techniques and technical skills you need to excel in this vibrant industry.

You'll study a combination of in-depth theoretical frameworks that make up the mechanical engineering discipline, including project planning and management. Plus, you'll learn industrial design principles and concepts like development, problem-solving and modelmaking.

So much more than just theory, this degree gets you learning hands-on from year one and delivers you a qualification that employers find hard to ignore.

Industry and expert connections

From year one, you'll be learning from industry experts and like-minded teachers. Hands-on experience is key to this double degree, and in your final year you can enhance your knowledge through an industry-based project or placement.

Graduate outcomes

You'll be at the forefront of a number of rapidly growing career paths. You can choose to design consumer products, putting your skills into play to make every day more user-friendly. Or, you can choose to specialise in the design and manufacture of products for a range of industries including mining, transportation, building services and medical supplies.
