Academic Item Menu


This dual award program gives students the chance to develop their skills and knowledge in two areas - the major area of interest leading to a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree plus an additional area leading to a Bachelor of Engineering Science degree. Students have a pathway to enhance their professional opportunities through developing cross-disciplinary skills and knowledge within a five year program.

With this dual degree program, students take the 168 units of credit core of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) 3707 and the 96 units of credit core of the Bachelor of Engineering Science program 3706. Because of the overlap of 24 units of credit of engineering courses in both cores, the total units of credit required for completion is 240 UOC, rather than 264 UOC. The Faculty of Engineering administers the program, and delegates administration to the School which offers the Engineering discipline selected. Students should seek advice from the relevant School Office in the first instance or from the Faculty of Engineering Student Centre
