The Chief of Defence Force Students (CDFS) Programs in Arts, Business, Engineering, Science and Technology - Aeronautical offer the opportunity for students entering UNSW Canberra with a high Entrance Rank, and who maintain a high level of performance in their studies, to undertake research in a range of disciplines that will develop their critical thinking and independent research skills beyond that available in the standard Bachelor Degree programs.

The range of CDFS Programs is characterised by the inclusion of specialist courses in critical analysis and/or research methods appropriate to the area of study. All programs also include discipline-specific research projects. The research projects will be supervised by academic staff from the relevant discipline. With the approval of the relevant Heads of Schools, multi- or cross-disciplinary projects may be undertaken. Students in the research courses may work independently or as part of a team, depending on the nature of the project undertaken, though all students will submit individual assessment. Final assessment will be based on a written paper or report and oral presentations.

Throughout the program students will be engaged with cohort activities so as to develop and maintain their interest and continuing involvement in the program via invited lectures, seminars, general reading and social events.

The CDFS Programs are of three-years’ duration in Arts, Business, Science and Technology - Aeronautical. 

A separate honours year may be undertaken. The programs in Engineering are all of four-years’ duration and are awarded with Honours.

The Bachelor of Computing and Cyber Security (Honours) degree is intended for students wishing to deepen their knowledge and develop more advanced, independent research skills. The student will undertake courses that will extend their knowledge in their chosen topic area as well as enhancing their research skills. A major project will be undertaken that will result in a thesis dissertation of between 20,000 and 35,000 words. The dissertation may be larger or smaller depending on the project, the production of a specific Computing and Cyber Security artefact and discussion with the Honours supervisor.

 At the end of the program, students should have acquired all of the following learning outcomes:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of specialised knowledge in computing and cyber security
  • Plan and execute a piece of research or a professional project with some independence
  • Reflect critically on existing theoretical knowledge, ideas and practice within computing and cyber security to address the research topic
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and judgement, personal autonomy and accountability in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the ethical and social factors involved in the utilisation of computing in the service of the community in a global environment
  • Demonstrate communciation skills to present a clear and coherant exposition of knowledge and ideas to a variety of audiences

The Bachelor of Computing and Cyber Security is a three-year program at pass level. If eligible, students who have completed the pass degree, may be admitted to an additional one-year Honours program.
 
This program is built on solid computer science and mathematics fundamentals with a focus on both theoretical foundations and practical approaches to computation and its applications within security. In this program, students first apply these techniques to gaming and then later learn more about hardware, systems, networking and the Internet, and learn to secure such environments.
 

The design methods, tools and programming ability gained can be applied to many kinds of computer applications. In a final-year capstone team project students will be able to select from a wide range of ADF and civilian application domains in which to develop these abilities in computing and cyber security.

Students will use state of the art equipment in all their security and forensics courses in a Cyber Range.

Pass-level students in Computing and Cyber Security should complete their programs within three years. Eligible and approved Honours students who are RAN midshipmen or RAAF officer cadets can continue with their programs at the end of the third year. Army officer cadets, however, at the end of their third year transfer to the Royal Military College, Duntroon. After completing a year of military training they are commissioned as lieutenants and those who are continuing with Honours return to the Academy to complete their program.

Mechanical engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with machines and the production of power, and with forces and motion. It focuses on the core task of devising new and better ways to extract mechanical power from heat, and to use that power to perform useful tasks.

A degree in mechanical engineering will provide you with a solid understanding of thermodynamics, mechanical systems dynamics, properties of solid materials, fluid dynamics, design, and high-level project management skills.

If you select the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Mechanical at UNSW Canberra, you will study subjects such as computational problem solving, programming, mathematics, physics, fluid mechanics, mechanics of machines, mechanical design, engineering materials, and cyber security. You will spend at least 60 days gaining practical engineering experience in the workplace during your degree, and you will undertake your own capstone research project in your final year. Your degree will also be accredited with Engineers Australia, which means that you will be qualified to begin working as an engineer as soon as you graduate.

As a Mechanical Engineer, you could work in the automotive, aerospace and transport industries, power generation, refineries, insurance industries, building services, railway systems design, consumer goods design and production and management consultancies. 

Key features:

– UNSW Canberra is the only Australian university to equip engineering students with vocational level competencies, providing a practical foundation for professional Engineers.

– UNSW Canberra has purpose built workshops and facilities, with dedicated workspaces, workshop tools, machines and welding equipment.
