Bachelor of Engineering (La Trobe, Australia)

Infrastructure is a key priority for the Australian Government, who have initiated a range of large-scale projects to address issues such as urban congestion and national connectivity. These projects have enabled the engineering industry to adapt and thrive and have seen the engineering industry in Victoria continue to grow.


La Trobe’s Diploma of Engineering Technology gives you an immersive introduction to the field of engineering and a pathway to one of two world-class bachelor’s degrees. Gain the skills, knowledge, and experience to tackle engineering problems and implement creative solutions.
You’ll explore foundational concepts in mathematics, physics, and programming and from there, you’ll discover how to apply these concepts to devise engineering solutions.
As you progress, you’ll gain experience collaborating with teams to effectively achieve goals. You’ll also develop your written and oral communication skills and build your confidence in relaying complex technical information.
