Requirements: Summary

In summary the requirements are:

Students must complete 240 credit points as follows:

Engineering (144 credit points):

► 36 credit points of Engineering core units (12cp of MATH1* can count towards Science requirements)

► The Professional Engagement Program comprising ENGP1000 (0cp), ENGP2000 (0cp) and ENGP3000 (0cp)

► 108 credit points of Aeronautical Stream core units

► Up to 12 credit points of Aeronautical Stream elective units

Science:

► 96 credit points of 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 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 Honours

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

(b) Except where varied by other clauses of these resolutions, all candidates must complete a minimum of 144 credit points comprising:

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

(ii) 108 credit points 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 Honours 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 Science

For the Bachelor of Science component of a combined degree:

(a) The units of study that may be taken are set out in Table A of the Faculty of Science, and Table S and Table O of the Shared Pool for Undergraduate Degrees.

(b) Candidates must complete 96 credit points in the Bachelor of Science including:

(i) any required degree core units as set out in Table A of the Faculty of Science; and

(ii) a major (48 credit points) or a 3-year program with an embedded major from Table A of the Faculty of Science; and

(iii) 12 credit points of units of study in the Open Learning Environment as listed in Table O; and

(iv) where appropriate, additional electives from Table A of the Faculty of Science or Table S;

(v) If enrolled in a stream, complete the requirements for the stream as specified in Table A of the Faculty of Science.

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.
