Be prepared for a career where innovation makes a real difference

Studying engineering, computing or project management at the University of Sydney will provide you with the highest technical skills through both theory and practice, preparing you for the future world of work.

Why study engineering, computing or project management?

So you’re doing your HSC (or equivalent) at high school and starting to think about the kind of undergraduate degree to do at university. How do you know if a career in engineering, computing or project management is right for you?

Start by checking if any of the following statements sound like you.

  • I enjoy mathematics and science subjects at school (and I’m good at them).
  • I love a challenge: exploring how a problem can be solved from different perspectives.
  • I’m creative and would love a career where I can develop innovative ideas.
  • I’d like to be involved in projects that make a real difference in people’s lives.
  • I enjoy making things that work and making things work better.
  • Seeing the impact of my work, being able to say ‘I contributed to that’, is important to me.
  • I believe that being prepared for future jobs (maybe even those not yet invented) will make the difference in getting a job when I finish university.
  • When I think of what kind of industry that excites me, I think of things like healthcare, the environment, defence, aviation, robotics, humanitarian aid, telecommunications or technology.

If you agreed with at least three of these statements, an undergraduate degree in engineering, computing or project management should be your first preference.
