The ``Advanced Breadth`` and ``Advanced Depth`` requirements for the Chemical and Biomolecular Stream are based on IChemE curriculum standards for Chemical Engineering degrees accredited at IChemE M Level (Master equivalent). ``Breadth`` subjects are defined by IChemE as subjects broadly related to Chemical Engineering that are ``at an appropriate advanced level`` but without prerequisites. Degrees accredited at I-Chem-E M Level must include at least two advanced level Chemical Engineering units in the ``Breadth`` category as well as two units of ``Depth``.

Note: A minimum of 12 credit points must be taken.

The ``Advanced Breadth`` and ``Advanced Depth`` requirements for the Chemical and Biomolecular Stream are based on IChemE curriculum standards for Chemical Engineering degrees accredited at IChemE M Level (Master equivalent). ``Depth`` subjects are defined by I-Chem-E as subjects that involve greater knowledge and more challenging outcomes than ``Breadth`` subjects, and have specific chemical engineering prerequisites. Degrees accredited at I-Chem-E M Level must include at least two advanced level Chemical Engineering units in the ``Depth`` category as well as two units of ``Breadth``.

Block 8 - Engineering General Electives (Max CP: 6)

Note: Students may take 6 credit points of free general electives to complete the total number of credit points for their degree. Students may take the following units of study as free general electives, provided they satisfy any prerequisite, quota, departmental permission or any other requirements of the units, and the units are not essentially the same or prohibited units for any of the other units in their degree.

(1) Any units of study from the Faculty of Engineering available to undergraduate students, or Table S.

(2) Any units of study approved by the Associate Dean, on a case by case basis upon application by the student.

Handbook Rules

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

In exceptional circumstances, the Dean may vary the conditions for the award of Honours after seeking the advice of the relevant Head of School.

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.
