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) 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. CHNG4041,CHNG4042 in place of 4th year core. Most Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science units of study offered by the Faculty of Science can be replaced by an equivalent Advanced level unit of study 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.

This course outline should be read in conjunction with the course rules specified in the relevant faculty handbooks at http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/

3. Semesters

Year 1 - Semester 1

Type CP CP From
Core
6 CHEM1101: Chemistry 1A


Note: This unit is discontinued from 2018. Replacement unit is CHEM1111.
Core
6 ENGG1800: Introduction to Engineering Disciplines
Core

Note: The combined degree in Law and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has an extra 6 credit points in Semester 1 above the normal 24 cp load. The extra 6 credit points is necessary to meet the prequisite rules of the second year units in Law and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the same time. Commencing students will need to get special permission to undertake this increased study load.

Taking ENGG1801 as a Summer School subject, rather than Semester 1, is on option for students wanting their workload more evenly spread across the year. Before proceeding with their selection of first year units students should consult their academic advisor.
