About this major

Our Fluids Engineering specialisation will provide you with a breadth of knowledge and skills in key fluids engineering topics, ranging from fundamental fluid dynamics and thermal engineering, to advanced fluid dynamics concepts in turbulence, experimental methods, and computational fluid dynamics.

This specialisation will offer you the knowledge and technical skills to analyse and innovate engineering devices and systems that rely on fluid flows in an interdisciplinary context.

It also provides opportunities to engage in applications ranging from energy conversion, transport and propulsion, environmental water flows and management, biomedical flows, pharmaceutical drug delivery flows and aerospace.

Graduate opportunities

As a graduate of our Fluids Engineering specialisation, you will posses the knowledge and skills necessary as a fluids engineer to progress into areas such as energy conversion, transport and propulsion, environmental flows, and biomedical flows and devices.

You may pursue a career designing and maintaining fluid-based mechanical systems such as complex hydraulic and pumping systems, or installing and repairing equipment used to extract water, oil, and natural gas from the earth.
