2. Requirements

Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (Space Engineering) are required to gain credit for the core units of study set out below. Any additional credit necessary shall be gained by completing additional credit points of elective units of study as recommended by the Faculty, as may be necessary to gain credit for a total of not less than 192 credit points.

Acceptable alternative units of study

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 considering doing advanced options should seek advice from their department before enrolling.

Students enrolled in combined degrees are also exempt from one of the follwing core units MECH3260, MECH3261, MECH3361 or MECH3362.This choice should be based on the prereq requirements of 4th year recommended units that students plan to enrol in.

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.

Resolutions of the Faculty of Engineering relating to this table:

BE(Mechanical Engineering)(Space)

In addition to gaining credit for the units of study set out in the above table, candidates are required to complete 12 credit points from the table of recommended elective units of study for Mechanical (Space) Engineering and 12 credit points of free elective units of study. A minimum of 192 credit points is required to be eligible for the award of BE(Aeronautical)(Space).
