The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering offer a dual degree program which qualifies students for two degrees after the equivalent of six years of successful full-time study leading to the award of the degrees Bachelor of Advanced Science(Honours) and Bachelor of Engineering (Honours).

The Faculty of Science administers the program, and delegates administration of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) requirements to the School which offers the Engineering discipline selected. Students should seek advice from the Faculty of Science regarding their Advanced Science (Honours) program, and the relevant Engineering School Office, or the Faculty of Engineering, regarding their Engineering program.
