The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

(1) To qualify for the award of the combined degree:

(a) For all Bachelor of Engineering Honours combined degrees except the Bachelor of Engineering Honours and Bachelor of Laws, a candidate must complete 240 credit points and satisfy any additional requirements specified in the following clauses.

(b) For the Bachelor of Engineering Honours and Bachelor of Laws combined degree, a candidate must complete 288 credit points and any additional requirements specified in the following clauses.

(c) 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.

To qualify for the award of the combined degree:

Requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours

(b) Except where varied by other clauses of these resolutions, all candidates must:

(i) complete a minimum of 144 credit points comprising:

(a) A minimum of 18 credit points from the Engineering Core Foundations Table, including all required units;

(b) A minimum 24 credit points from the Engineering Projects (Combined) Table, including all required units;

(c) A minimum of 102 credit points from the Engineering Stream (Combined) Table pertaining to the stream being undertaken, including

all required units

(ii) successfully complete the requirements of the Professional Engagement Program.

(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.

Note: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.

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 of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and Table S and Table O of the Shared Pool for Undergraduate Degrees.

(c) Candidates must complete 96 credit points in the Bachelor of Arts including:

(i) any required degree core units as set out in Table A of the degree in which the candidate is enrolled; and

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

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

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.
