Course: Civil / Law (2015)
CP Required: 288
Min FT Duration: 6.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: University Archive
Years Offered: 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015
Requirements: This course outline should be read in conjunction with the Handbook for the Bachelor of Engineering: http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/engineering/coursework/engineering_laws.shtml

To qualify for the combined BE(Civil)/LLB degree the candidate is required to complete 288 credit points comprising:

(a) 144 credit points of CORE Civil units,

and

(b) 102 credit points of compulsory Law units,

and

(c) 42 credit points of elective Law units from the Faculty of Law Undergraduate Table, of which a maximum of 36 credit points are taken from Part 1 and a minimum of 6 credit points are taken from Part 2.

Civil Engineering Specialisation Streams

Specialisation stream in the BE (Civil) degree is available to exceptional students who meet certain progress requirements. To satisfy the specialisation criteria students must be enrolled in that stream and complete at least 3 Civil electives from the relevant specialiastion stream listed below and undertake an Honours Thesis or Engineering Project in a related topic.

(i) Structures Stream: CIVL3235; CIVL5266; CIVL5269; CIVL5458

(ii) Environmental Stream: CIVL3614; CIVL5351; CIVL5668; CIVL5670

(iii) Geotechnical Stream: CIVL3411; CIVL5351; CIVL5452; CIVL5458

(iv) Construction Management Stream: CIVL3805, CIVL4815, CIVL3813, CIVL4810 and CIVL4814. Students cannot do more than four units from the Construction Engineering and Management stream, even as a free elective. CIVL3813 is a 4th year elective, not 3rd year.

In order to satisfy the requirements for specialisation the candidate may need to complete more than 288 credit points.

"Free" Electives

There are no free electives available in this degree.

Engineering Honours Requirement

Candidates are required to achieve a minimum HWAM (Honours Weighted Average Mark) of 65% to qualify for the Honours degree. Students who satisfy all requirements for graduation except the HWAM required for honours will be awarded the PASS degree Bachelor of Engineering.

Acceptable alternative units of study

Most Mathematics; Chemistry; Physics and Computer Science units of study offered by the Faculty of Science can be replaced by an equivalent advanced level units of study subject to prerequisite conditions (as required by the Faculty of Science) being met.

Overloaded Semesters

Students are required to complete 30 CP in 1st semester in both years 1 and 2.

Students are required to complete only 18 CP in 2nd semester in both years 4 and 5 .

If students feel they cannot attempt 30 CP in a semester they may consider doing some units in Summer School or Winter School (recommended ENGG1801 and LAWS1015).

If, however, such students are further unable to enrol in summer school they are advised to discuss possible alternative enrolment programs with the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Civil Engineering.
