Career Information

Bachelor of Engineering Technology graduates enjoy a wide variety of challenging career options across a range of industries and government sectors. As an Engineering Technologist you will apply your problem-solving skills and knowledge of scientific fundamentals to the design, testing, inspection, adaptation, commissioning, management or operation of on-site equipment, plant and sustainable systems.

Engineering Technologists, having specialised in one of the disciplines of civil (structural), civil (municipal/transportation), mechanical (process), mechanical (energy), mechanical (design), electrical (electrical power) or electrical (control), find employment in national and international public and private industry sectors including the energy, transportation, manufacturing, process, construction, mining and education industries.

The Bachelor of Engineering Technology course is based on the project-based learning philosophy which offers the opportunity to learn in context. This approach is designed to produce work-ready graduates with industry-relevant skills.

Completing your Final Year Project

ENTG13002 Technology Project Planning

In line with Division of Higher Education Policy for enrolment into Project based units you will need to follow the process below prior enrolment into the relevant unit:-

  1. Develop the Project Proposal
  2. Obtain an Academic Supervisor for the Project
  3. Determine your Project Title

Once you have made these arrangements, provide this information to your Unit Coordinator. Once approved you will be manually enrolled in the relevant unit by your Student Advisor (Courses and Careers).

ENTG13001 Technology Project Implementation

  1. Confirm Project Proposal is continuation of previous
  2. Advise name of your Academic Supervisor for the Project
  3. Provide the name of your Project Title
  4. Obtain a Pass (or higher) result in the prerequisite unit

Provide this information to your Unit Coordinator. Once approved you will be manually enrolled in the relevant unit by your Student Advisor (Courses and Careers).


Unit Availability

All units in this course are offered in distance (external) mode. All units in the first two years of the course (assuming part-time study progression) are also offered internally at the CQUniversity Rockhampton, Mackay and Gladstone campuses. Distance students of this course will be required to attend the CQUniversity Rockhampton campus for compulsory residential schools in some units. Students are advised to check unit details to determine whether a unit has a residential component prior to enrolling.

Recommended study schedule

Students may determine their own schedule based upon credit transfers and personal study requirements.

Please note: that part-time students usually enrol in 12 units of credit per term and full-time students usually enrol in 24 units of credit per term.

Engineering practice (work experience) and report

An integral part of the course, and a requirement of Engineers Australia for course accreditation, is a minimum of six weeks of approved work experience in an engineering environment.

As proof of work experience, students will be required to submit a formal report indicating the type of work done, the degree of responsibility involved, the person(s) to whom the student was directly responsible, and the general activities of the employer. This report should be certified by the employer. Refer to ‘Engineering Practice' document located here for further information on work experience documentation required.

You should ensure that you submit your report in a timely manner prior to your expected graduation date. You will be assessed for eligibility to graduate immediately following Certification of Grades in your final Term of study. Please allow a 2 week turn-around time for assessment of your report. Failure to meet this deadline may result in a delay to your graduation date.

Please note: That even if you are working full-time in industry whilst studying, you must still submit a report. However, if you are carrying out appropriate engineering work, you can use your normal employment as the basis of your report.

Degree with distinction

To be eligible for the award of a Distinction in the Bachelor of Engineering Technology, a student must study a minimum of 72 units of credit of CQU units within the course and have achieved a minimum 'Weighted Grade Point Average' (WGPA) of 5.00 over their entire CQUniversity study course.

A degree with distinction will be awarded to eligible students who have achieved a WGPA of 6.00 or more for the highest graded results in 72 units of credit of units in Level 2 and 3 of the course, which must include Technology Project Preparation and Technology Project Implementation.

Articulation and credit transfer

The course allows the recognition of students' appropriate previous study and experience gained from working in industry, through 'Recognition of Prior Learning' (RPL) and 'Recognition of Current Competencies' (RCC). Students will be assessed for credit transfer on a case-by-case basis and will be required to nominate units they wish to be considered for exemption from. Grounds for that exemption, through students' demonstration of prior achievement of the CQUniversity units' learning outcomes, must be documented and assessed as satisfactory by the Course Committee

Students may only gain credit transfer for up to 67% of the overall course, on a units of credit basis, with a majority of Advanced Level units studied.

We are unable to assess credit transfer until potential students accept an offer to study with the University, however you are welcome to do a self assessment by using our Credit Transfer Kit.

Please note that study undertaken more than10 years ago is not normally considered unless the applicant can supply certified documents showing that they have been continually using the required skills in the work force. Generally only TAFE diploma level or above is recognised for credit at tertiary level.

Refer to the Credit Transfer website at http://www.cqu.edu.au/credittransfer for further details on the guidelines and application process.

Transfer into the Bachelor of Engineering courses

All CQUniversity BEngTech course plans have a defined articulation path into the Bachelor of Engineering (BE) course. Students considering articulation into the BE course should contact their Student Advisor (Courses and Careers).

Rules for progression in the BET course

The BET course is criterion-referenced. As such, progress is conditional upon students having acquired specified skills and knowledge in previous units of study. Students failing a unit twice will be required to demonstrate to their Student Advisor (Courses and Careers) why their third attempt is likely to be successfully before they enrol again.


Computing requirements

It is a requirement of enrolment in this course that students have access to the CQUniversity website. Students may be required to undertake various components of study in the course using email and the Internet.

It is strongly recommended that students have access to a broadband connection or higher to access online student resources that would include but not limited to, email, internet, video streaming, electronic assessment submission.
