Course: Aeronautical / Arts (2016)
CP Required: 240
Min FT Duration: 5.00 Years

Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering
Years Offered: 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015
Requirements: In summary the requirements are:

Students must complete 240 credit points as follows:

Engineering (156 credit points):

► 36 credit points of Engineering core units

► 108 credit points of Aeronautical stream core units

► 12 credit points of Aeronautical Specialist elective units

Arts:

► 84 credit points of Arts units

The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

To qualify for the award of the combined degree:

(a) For all Bachelor of Engineering combined degrees a candidate must complete 240 credit points and satisfy any additional requirements specified.

(b) Where the requirements specified in the following clauses account for less than the total required credit, candidates must complete additional units of study from the tables relevant to the Bachelor of Engineering as may be necessary to satisfy the requirements of the degree.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering

For the Bachelor of Engineering component of a combined degree:

(a) The units of study that may be taken for the Bachelor of Engineering component of the combined degree are set out in the tables of units of study for the Bachelor of Engineering single degree;

(b) Except where approved, all candidates must complete a minimum of 144 credit points comprising:

(i) 36cp from the Engineering Core Table, including all required units;

(ii) 108cp from the Engineering Stream Core Table pertaining to the specialist stream being undertaken, including all required units;

(c) The Faculty Board may approve, based on appropriate academic justification, a list of approved unit alternatives. These alternatives specify, for particular Engineering stream / combined degree combinations, units within the normal requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering component of the combined degree that can be replaced by specified alternative units that would form part of the normal program for single degree students in that stream.

Candidates who do not meet the requirements for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering Honours but who have otherwise satisfied the requirements of the Bachelor of Engineering shall graduate with the Bachelor of Engineering pass degree.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts

For the Bachelor of Arts component of a combined degree:

(a) The units of study that may be taken are set out in Table A from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Tables of units of study.

(b) Candidates must complete a total of 84 credit points from Table A, including:

(i) a major from Table A

(ii) a minimum of 54 credit points of 2000/3000 level units of study.

Candidates for the award of the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) who do not meet the requirements, and who have not already graduated, will be awarded the Bachelor of Arts pass degree.

Engineering Honours requirements

(a) an EWAM of at least 65 immediately prior to the semester in which a thesis unit of study is first attempted; and

(b) have an EIHWAM of at least 65 at the completion of the degree; and

(c) complete the requirements within a time limit of 5 years for a single Bachelor of Engineering Honours degree or complete the requirements within a time limit of 6 years for a combined Bachelor of Engineering Honours combined degree.

Candidates who satisfy the requirements for the Engineering degree, but who have not satisfied each of Clauses (a), (b) and (c), will qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering degree (i.e. the PASS degree, awarded without Honours).

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.

Permission from the relevant Head of School must be sought prior to enrolling in exchange units of study.

Majors

A major requires:

(a) the completion of 24 credit points chosen from units of study listed in the table for that major;

(b) satisfying any additional requirements specified for the major, and listed with the table of units for the major;

(c) the completion of a thesis project that has been approved by the Head of School (or delegate) as relevant to the topic of the major.
