The Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics has been privileged to launch the careers of many brilliant individuals.
Our goal is to create independent graduates who are empowered to change the world and seek solutions to humanity's greatest challenges.
We take on projects of global significance, from inventing a needle microscope to pinpoint cancer cells to creating safer designs for oil and gas pipelines. Our research directly informs strategy, policy, training and operations in the real world. In studying with us, you will benefit from close interaction with our leading researchers and their links to industry.
Our majors outlined below are degree-specific to the Bachelor of Science
, but may be taken as a second major in any one of UWA's other three-year undergraduate degrees (Arts, Commerce, Design), or the four-year Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours).
- Engineering Science
The Engineering Science major is your pathway to the Master of Professional Engineering and a global career as a professional engineer.
- Applied Computing
The Applied Computing major provides a practical and theoretical understanding of how to use technology for data collection, conversion, analysis, visualisation and interpretation.
- Computer Science
The Computer Science major covers the theoretical, algorithmic, implementation and systems principles that underpin computer languages and networks and explores how to to develop new technologies and advanced programming.
- Mathematics and Statistics
The Mathematics and Statistics major will equip you with the mathematical tools and techniques of at least two of the three major disciplines of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.
- Quantitative Methods
The Quantitative Methods major will assist with your decision making skills through an understanding of the various mathematical and statistical techniques used to analyse and interpret data.
Our postgraduate qualifications will equip you with the advanced technical expertise, critical thinking and professional skills required to remain competitive in a global workforce.
- Master of Professional Engineering
The Master of Professional Engineering allows you to practice as a professional engineer, seek employment in industries requiring a high degree of numeracy, including finance and consulting, or pursue further research studies in engineering.
- Master of Engineering in Oil and Gas
The Master of Engineering in Oil and Gas has been designed in collaboration with industry partners and provides a comprehensive skill set for engineering graduates seeking employment in the global oil and gas industry.
- Master of Information Technology
The Master of Information Technology is designed for students and professionals with a tertiary degree in another discipline, and who seek to develop specialist skills in computing and information systems.
The Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics is a world leader in Engineering for Remote Operations (ERO). Geographically, we are at the hub of a vibrant mining and energy sector, and this provides outstanding opportunities for researchers to collaborate with industry and other partners to meet the challenges of ERO.
Our multidisciplinary research groups have great impact in the areas of mining development and production, offshore engineering, agriculture, health, transport, energy, water suppy and community development.
We are committed to supporting our early career researchers and emerging research leaders. Together, we can change the world.
- Higher degree by research (preliminary)
The Higher Degree by Research Preliminary: Engineering ensures adequate preparation to satisfy eligibility for master's degree by research or PhD.
- Master's degree by research
Master's degree by research consists of 2 years full-time study and is examined by thesis. Your thesis must be a substantial work, generally based on independent research in a chosen field.
A PhD is a programme of independent, supervised research that consists of 3-4 years full-time study and is examined by thesis.
- Doctor of Engineering
The degree of Doctor of Engineering is of a higher standard than either the master's degree or the Doctor of Philosophy and may be awarded by the Faculty for independent and original work.
