Years Offered: 2012, 2011, 2010

2. Requirements

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.

Advanced engineering 2, 3, or 4 is an acceptable alternative to MECH4601.

The elective AMME4790 Intro Biomechatronics is an acceptable alternative to ELEC3802. Students can not do both.

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 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.

BE(Mechanical Engineering Biomedical) BSc or BCom or BMedSci or BA or LLB

In addition to gaining credit for the units of study set out in this table, candidates are required to complete sufficient Biomolecular Engineering electives from the

table below so as to bring their total of eligible engineering credit points to at least 144. Further to this they are required to complete at least 96 credit points of

units of study given by the Faculty of Science for the BE/BSc and BMedSci, or the Faculty of Economics and Business for the BE/BCom. In the case of the BE/BA,

they are required to complete at least 84 credit points of units of study given by the Faculty of Arts, and the remaining 12 credit points will be Biomedical Engineering

electives from the table below.

In the case of the BE/LLB, they are required to complete 96 credit points of compulsory Law units of study and a further 48 credit points of elective Law units of

study. A minimum of 240 credit points is required to be eligible for the combined degrees BE/BSc, BMedSci, BE/BCom and BE/BA.

A minimum of 288 credit points is required to be eligible for the combined degree BE/LLB. candidates should refer to the joint resolutions of the faculty in which

they are undertaking the second degree.
