Note: This course version applies only to students first enrolling in 2015.


1. Overview

Course: Mechanical (Space) / Law (2015)
CP Required: 288
Min FT Duration: 6.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering
Years Offered: 2015

2. Requirements

(1) A candidate for the Engineering/Law combined degree must complete 288 credit points, comprising: (a) 144 credit points of units of study from the table of units for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours, appropriate to the stream the candidate is pursuing; and (b) 144 credit points of Law units of study, of which 48 credit points are Combined Law compulsory units of study for years 1, 2 and 3 and are credited towards the requirements for both the Bachelor of Engineering Honours and the Bachelor of Laws.

(2) Requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours. Candidates are required to achieve a minimum HWAM (Honours Weighted Average Mark) of 65% to qualify for the Honours degree. Students who satisfy all requirements for graduation except the HWAM required for honours will be awarded the PASS degree Bachelor of Engineering.

(3) Requirements for the Bachelor of Laws. To qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Laws, candidates must complete 144 credit points taken from the Faculty of Law Undergraduate Table, comprising: (i) 102 credit points of compulsory units of study; and (ii) 42 credit points of elective units of study, of which a maximum of 36 credit points are taken from Part 1 and a minimum of 6 credit points are taken from Part 2.

(4) Acceptable alternative units of study. 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.
