MECHANICAL ENGINEERING MINOR/EXTENSION PATHWAYS
Future Proof Engineers for the Real World

In APU, employment and it’s continual sustainability is of paramount importance to us. The range of minor and extensions offered to all students within the School of Engineering will craft a formidable way forward for the young aspiring engineers of tomorrow. These options allow students to embark on a journey of exploration either within the engineering fraternity by extending into greater depth (extensions) niche knowledge, skills and attributes required for the practice of contemporary engineering or explore wider options (minor) that are pivotal in the fundamental proliferation of the engineering profession as a while when coupled with other current multidisciplinary fields of expertise. Successful completion of either pathways future proof the students allowing them to embark on a journey of rewarding careers within an engineering discipline of their choice.

Minor Pathway – Gain breadth of knowledge by taking 3 set modules outside of a particular major field of study. There are minor packages available undertaken from Year 3 Semester 2 Year 4 Semester 1 and Year 4 Semester 2.
