2. Requirements

The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

To qualify for the award of the combined degree:

(a) For the Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Arts combined degree a candidate must complete 240 credit points and satisfy any additional requirements specified in the following clauses.

(b) Where the requirements specified in the following clauses account for less than the total required credit, candidates must complete additional units of study from the tables relevant to the Bachelor of Engineering as may be necessary to satisfy the requirements of the degree.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours

(a) The units of study that may be taken for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours component of the combined degree are set out in the tables of units of study for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours single degree;

(b) Except where varied by other clauses of these resolutions, all candidates must complete a minimum of 144 credit points comprising:

(i) 36 credit points from the Engineering Core Table, including all required units;

(ii) 108 credit points from the Engineering Stream Core Table pertaining to the specialist stream being undertaken, including all required units;

(c) The Faculty Board may approve, based on appropriate academic justification, a list of approved unit alternatives. These alternatives specify, for particular Engineering stream / combined degree combinations, units within the normal requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours component of the combined degree that can be replaced by specified alternative units that would form part of the normal program for single degree students in that stream.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts

For the Bachelor of Arts component of a combined degree:

(a) The units of study that may be taken are set out in Table A of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and Table S and Table O of the Shared Pool for Undergraduate Degrees.

(c) Candidates must complete 96 credit points in the Bachelor of Arts including:

(i) any required degree core units as set out in Table A of the degree in which the candidate is enrolled; and

(ii) a major (48 credit points) or a 3-year program with an embedded major from Table A of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences; and

(iii) 12 credit points of units of study in the Open Learning Environment as listed in Table O; and

(iv) where appropriate, additional electives from Table A of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences or Table S;

(v) If enrolled in a stream, complete the requirements for the stream as specified in Table A of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

Advanced units in Maths and Science

Most units of study offered by the Science Faculty on the list of core requirements 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.

Study Abroad

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.

Permission from the relevant Head of School must be sought prior to enrolling in exchange units of study.

3. Semesters

Year 1 - Semester 1

Type CP CP From
3 Select from MATH1021: Calculus of One Variable
0 Select from ENGP1000: Professional Engagement Program 1


Note: All students must enrol in ENGP1000 in their first semester of enrolment.
6 Select from Unit Block:
Arts
6 Select from ENGG1800: Introduction to Engineering Disciplines
6 Select from ENGG1111: Integrated Engineering 1
3 Select from MATH1002: Linear Algebra

Note: MATH1021 and MATH1002 may be replaced by advanced units MATH1921 and MATH1902.

Students choose a stream of engineering to undertake at the end of Semester 1. In semester 2 they then follow the program for that particular engineering stream.

Year 1 - Semester 2

Type CP CP From
3 Select from MATH1023: Multivariable Calculus and Modelling
6 Select from Unit Block:
Arts
