Course: Mechanical / Medical Science (2017)
CP Required: 240
Min FT Duration: 5.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering
Years Offered: 2017, 2016, 2015
Requirements: In summary the requirements are:

Students must complete 240 credit points as follows:

Engineering (144 credit points):

► 36 credit points of Engineering core units

► 108 credit points of Mechanical stream core units

Medical Science:

► 96 credit points of Medical Science 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 (not including general electives) from the relevant Bachelor of Engineering Honours specialist stream table subject to any conditions specified in that table 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 varied by other clauses in the course resolutions, 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.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Medical Science

For the Bachelor of Medical Science component of a combined degree:

(a) The units of study that may be taken are listed in Table IV for the Bachelor of Medical Science from the Faculty of Science.

(b) The mathematics requirement for the Bachelor of Engineering component of the combined degree will also satisfy the mathematics requirements for the Bachelor of Medical Science component.

(c) Candidates must complete 96 credit points of units including:

(i) A minimum of 24 credit points from junior Science units of study, including:

- 12 credit points from Chemistry; and

- 12 credit points from BIOL1XXX

(ii) 48 credit points from intermediate Science units of study, comprising:

- 36 credit points of BMED240# units from Table IV (B) for the Bachelor of Medical Science; and

- MBLG2071/2971 Molecular Biology and Genomics; and

- MBLG2072/2972 Genetics and Genomics.

Note: changes to the Medical Science degree from 2019 require that alternative units replace some core Med Sci units.

- In place of the 36 cp of BMED240X units, take MEDS2001, MEDS2002, MEDS2003, MEDS2004 and MEDS2005 and one additional medical science elective.

- In place of MBLG2X71 and MBLG2X72 take GEGE2001 and BCMB2002.

(iii) A minimum of 24 credit points of senior Science units of study selected from the Bachelor of Science (Medical Science) Table.

Optional Science Major

The completion of a Science major through selection of appropriate Senior Science units is possible as part of the Engineering/Medical Science combined degree, but not required. Any student who satisfies the requirements of a Science major through the Science units taken as part of the combined degree shall have that major recorded on the Bachelor of Medical Science testamur at the completion of the degree.

The majors available in medical science discipline areas are Anatomy and Histology*, Applied Medical Science (Transitional Provision), Biochemistry*, Cell Pathology, Immunobiology*, Microbiology*, Molecular Biology and Genetics*, Neuroscience*, Nutrition and Metabolism, Pharmacology*, Physiology*

* indicates a major in this area is also available at the advanced level

The requirements for completion of the above majors is set out in Table I of the Handbook http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/science/table1/table1_overview.shtml

Medical Science Honours

Honours in Medical Science requires the completion of one additional full time year of study. Admission and award requirements for Honours in the Bachelor of Medical Science are listed in the resolutions of the Faculty of Science.

To qualify for the award of the Honours degree, a student must complete 48 credit points of Honours units of study in one of the Honours subjects listed in the Bachelor of Medical Science Table IV (D).

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

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.

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.
