2. Requirements

Handbook Rules

The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

(2)To qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering Honours degree, a candidate must:

(a) successfully complete 192 credit points comprising:

(i) A minimum of 18 credit points from the Engineering Foundations Table, including all required units;

(ii) A minimum of 30 credit points from the Engineering Projects (Single) Table, including all required units;

(iii) A minimum of 138 credit points from the Engineering Stream (Single) Table pertaining to the specialist stream being undertaken, including all required units;

(iv) A maximum of 6 credit points from Table S or any unit from within the Faculty of Engineering which is available to undergraduate students

(b) Successfully complete the requirements of the Professional Engagement Program.

(3) The class of Honours will be determined by the EIHWAM.

The EIHWAM calculation can befound at: http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/engineering/general/faculty_resolutions.shtml

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.

3. Semesters

Year 1 - Semester 1

Type CP CP From
3 Select from MATH1021: Calculus of One Variable
6 Select from ENGG1111: Integrated Engineering 1
3 Select from MATH1002: Linear Algebra
0 Select from ENGP1001: Professional Engagement Program 1A


Note: All students must enrol in ENGP1001 in their first semester of enrolment.
6 Select from ENGG1810: Introduction to Engineering Computing
6 Select from Unit Block:
Project 1 Units


Note: You can pick any engineering project unit to help you decide which direction to take. This unit will count as a core even if you ultimately decide on a different engineering stream

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

Students enrolled in a combined degree should replace ENGG1111 with 6 credit points from their second degree.

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
6 Select from ENGF1663: Flexible First Year Enrolment 3
6 Select from ENGF1662: Flexible First Year Enrolment 2
6 Select from ENGF1661: Flexible First Year Enrolment 1
3 Select from MATH1023: Multivariable Calculus and Modelling
3 Select from MATH1005: Statistical Thinking with Data
0 Select from ENGP1002: Professional Engagement Program 1B

Note: MATH1023 and MATH1005 may be replaced by advanced units MATH1923 and MATH1905.

Students enrolled in a combined degree should replace ENGF1663 with 6 credit points from their second degree.

This semester's units should only be used as a temporary enrolment. At the end of Semester 1 you should select your stream and change your unit selection to the appropriate units for that stream. Note that the MATH units should be taken regardless of which stream is selected.

Students in the combined BCom take MATH1004 in place of MATH1005, as the Statistics content is covered in BCom core unit BUSS1020.
