Note: The following units are approved as general electives for Bachelor of Engineering Honours Students, provided that students are able to meet the enrolment requirements specified by the relevant faculty and provided that the unit of study is not substantially the same as a unit of study already completed.

(1) All units offered by the following Faculties: Engineering and Information Technologies, Business, Science, Arts and Social Sciences.

(2) Additional units as included in the list of approved general Engineering electives, as approved by the Faculty Board (or, within delegated authority, the Faculty Courses Committee).

Block 6 - Commerce Units (Max CP: 72)

Note: For the Bachelor of Commerce component, students are required to complete a total of 96 credit points of Commerce Table A units as listed in the handbook of the Business School, including 24 credit points of core units, a major or program from Table A and 12 credit points of OLEs. See Faculty handbooks at http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks

Course: Electrical / Commerce (2019)

Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering
Years Offered: 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015
Requirements: Summary

In summary the requirements are:

Students must complete 240 credit points as follows:

Engineering (144 credit points):

► 36 credit points of Engineering core units

► The Professional Engagement Program comprising ENGP1000 (0cp), ENGP2000 (0cp) and ENGP3000 (0cp)

► 78 credit points of Electrical stream core units

► 30 credit points of Electrical Specialist electives units

Commerce (96 credit points):

► 24 credit points of Commerce core units

► A major (48 credit points) from Table A of the Faculty of Commerce

► 12 credit points of OLE

► 12 credit points of elective units from Table A or Table S

The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

(a) For all Bachelor of Engineering combined degrees a candidate must complete 240 credit points and satisfy any additional requirements specified.

(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.

To qualify for the award of the combined 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 Commerce

For the Bachelor of Commerce component of a combined degree:

(a) The units of study that may be taken are set out in Table A of The University of Sydney Business School.

(b) Candidates must complete 96 credit points of units of study selected from the Table of Undergraduate Units of Study from The University of Sydney Business School including:

(i) any required degree core units as set out in Table A of the University of Sydney Business School; and

(ii) a major (48 credit points) or a 3-year program with an embedded major (except for the Professional Accounting Program) from Table A of the University of Sydney Business School; 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 University of Sydney Business School or Table S;

(v) If enrolled in a stream, complete the requirements for the stream as specified in Table A of the University of Sydney Business School.

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.
