Studying Engineering (Honours) - Information Technology program from James Cook University offers unique opportunities for you to gain expertise in the particular challenges and demands of engineering in the tropics. As JCU is located between two World Heritage areas – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforests – you have access to some of the world’s most spectacular natural tropical laboratories, which provide the impetus for much of the discipline’s research work.
As well as studying Information Technology subjects you can choose from five different Engineering majors. The electronic systems and internet of things major is only available at the Cairns campus while all other majors are only available at the Townsville campus.
Create, manipulate and design products using raw materials, and chemistry and physics principles. Become an expert in the intricacies of reactor design and modelling, and learn how to comprehend the concepts of instrumental analysis. Build an in-depth understanding of advanced chemical technologies such as minerals processing, extractive metallurgy and bioprocessing.
Benefit from JCU’s expert lecturers and explore various civil engineering disciplines such as structural, hydraulic, geotechnical, transport and environmental engineering. Develop the skills required to assess the environmental impact of large projects and understand how to build community engagement. JCU graduates have a thorough understanding of how to make cities better places to live.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Learn how to design and maintain electrical energy infrastructure through the application of the electrical principles. You will integrate theory with practice and visit telecommunications companies, power utilities and mines. Build a comprehensive knowledge of electrical materials, circuit theory, single phase and three phase power system modelling and signal processing.
Electronic Systems and Internet of Things (IoT) Engineering
Develop sensor technologies, analyse big data and design smart technology that relates to various industries. Work with cloud computing and wireless communication utilising a state-of-the-art Internet of Things research lab. Become innovative technology leaders, accessing world-class lecturers and their strong industry partnerships.
Understand the principles of mechanics and thermodynamics to analyse, design, manufacture and maintain machines across almost all industries. Learn the foundations of thermofluid mechanics and the dynamics of machine elements. Through experiential learning, apply your understanding of heat exchange, momentum and strength of materials to design machines.
