1. Overview

Course: Mechanical Engineering / Law (2014)
CP Required: 288
Min FT Duration: 6.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: University Archive
Years Offered: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010

2. Requirements

Students in the Honours program must enrol in AMME4111 & AMME4112, students in the Pass program must enrol in AMME4121 & AMME4122.

Most units of study offered by the Science Faculty shown in the tables can be replaced by an equivalent advanced level unit, subject to prerequisite conditions (as required by the Faculty of Science) being met.

Students undertaking Study Abroad in a particular year of their degree must enrol in the appropriate exchange program units of study as an alternative to a semester`s standard units.

In addition to gaining credit for the units of study set out in this table, candidates are required to complete 6 credit points from the table of recommended elective units of study for Mechanical Engineering and at least 144 credit points of units of study given by the Faculty of Law for the BE/LLB. A minimum of 288 credit points is required to be eligible for the combined degrees. Candidates should refer to the Joint Resolutions of the Faculty of Engineering and the faculty in which they are undertaking the combined degree.
