Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are fundamental to our lives. Who can imagine a world without modern transport, medicines, Wi-Fi and smartphones? All these were created thanks to the fields known collectively as STEM.

STEM is responsible for the great innovations that make our world better. Research reveals that 75 percent of the fastest growing occupations require STEM skills and knowledge* and a degree in these areas will prepare you for careers in global scientific, technological and engineering revolutions.

Study at a highly ranked university

The University of Sydney is ranked in the top 50 in the world for engineering and technology.

Flexible options

If you would like to study engineering subjects at university, but are worried about making the ATAR cut-off, don't worry. Our Flexible Entry program considers your ATAR as well as your performance in maths and science subjects and, for engineering and IT, your leadership capability.

If you're not sure in which area of engineering or IT you'd like to specialise, our Flexible First Year program gives you the time and freedom to discover where your strengths and interests lie before deciding.

You can also broaden your career options with a combined degree - a program of study that allows you to graduate with two degrees. Combined degrees are usually five years in length and very popular, as they allow you to combine a range of interests.

Globally recognised qualifications

Our degrees are accredited by the relevant professional bodies and you will graduate with globally recognised qualifications, making you highly sought after by employers all over the world.
