The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

(2)To qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering Honours degree, a candidate must:

(a) successfully complete 192 credit points comprising:

(i) A minimum of 18 credit points from the Engineering Foundations Table, including all required units;

(ii) A minimum of 30 credit points from the Engineering Projects (Single) Table, including all required units;

(iii) A minimum of 138 credit points from the Engineering Stream (Single) Table pertaining to the specialist stream being undertaken, including all required units;

(iv) A maximum of 6 credit points from Table S or any unit from within the Faculty of Engineering which is available to undergraduate students

(b) Successfully complete the requirements of the Professional Engagement Program.

(3) The class of Honours will be determined by the EIHWAM.

The EIHWAM calculation can befound at: http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/engineering/general/faculty_resolutions.shtml

Advanced units in Maths and Science

Most units of study offered by the Science Faculty on the list of core requirements can be replaced by an equivalent advanced level unit; subject to prerequisite conditions (as required by the Faculty of Science) being met. Students considering doing advanced options should seek advice from their department before enrolling.

Study Abroad

Students undertaking Study Abroad in a particular year of their degree must enrol in the appropriate International Exchange Program units of study as an alternative to a semester's standard units.
