School of Engineering

Welcome to the School of Engineering


In almost every innovation and development, from turning on a light switch to supplying entire communities with power, you’ll find an aspect of engineering.

At UniSA, we incorporate strong theoretical teaching, experience-based learning including a 12-week work placement and cutting-edge facilities, to offer the ideal academic blend for producing graduates who are prepared to meet the challenges of modern enterprise. Our commitment to quality teaching and learning has also received national recognition with a citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning awarded by the Commonwealth Government’s Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) in 2014.

We are a solutions-oriented university, taking on the challenges of the future and aligning our research towards providing answers in these areas. The School of Engineering conducts research through the Barbara Hardy Institute, Research Node for Low Carbon Living,  Defence and Systems Institute, Agricultural Machinery Research and Design Centre and the Laser Physics and Photonics Devices Laboratory. 

Professional Accreditation

All 4-year Engineering programs at the University of South Australia are accredited by Engineers Australia. Completion of these programs provides eligibility for Graduate Membership of Engineers Australia and comparable international bodies through the Washington Accord. Where a program has not yet graduated any students the accreditation status may be provisional – this can be checked at the Engineers Australia website.

Please note that the two year Associate Degree in Engineering is not accredited by Engineers Australia, it is designed as a pathway program. From the beginning of 2015 the three year Bachelor of Technology is not accredited by Engineers Australia.
