The Bachelor of Engineering is a four-year full time program, which caters to students who wish to obtain an accredited engineering degree (Total of 400 points, 100 points of credit earned each year).

To satisfy course requirements students must take the set of core engineering subjects prescribed for the branch of engineering being studied.

This program is for those students commencing in 2008 and beyond and offers enhanced flexibility and breadth opportunities, and allows a common first year with the Engineering Systems majors in the Bachelor of Science and maintains alternative pathways between Engineering and Science (for example Electrical or Mechanical Engineering and Physics, and Software Engineering and Mathematics or Computer Science) for up to two full years. Students commencing in 2008 and beyond study two breadth subjects in first year followed by another one or two (depending upon the stream chosen) breadth subjects in second year.

Students will make use of the Engineering Learning Centre, which provides out-of-class study and meeting spaces for students. Students will be able to access on-line information such as the Learning Management System (LMS), study on their own and meet and collaborate with other students on project work and classwork, within a comfortable and supportive environment. Specialised learning spaces have been developed for students to participate in problem-based learning opportunities, commencing in first year with Engineering Systems Design 1 and 2, common subjects for all Bachelor of Engineering streams.


Upon completion of the four year Bachelor of Engineering degree, it is possible for a student to be awarded a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours provided the student has achieved a high level of academic performance throughout the course. Eligibility for the Honours award is dependent on a calculated honours score.

The honours score will include core and restricted elective subjects weighted by subject credit points and not the year level. For each stream, the score includes all core subjects in second, third and fourth year of the standard full time sequence, plus all the subjects that were restricted-choice or technical electives in second, third and fourth year of the standard full time sequence but not including failed subjects, free-choice electives, breadth subjects, subject completed on Exchange or Study Abroad.

Engineering Practice Hurdle Requirement

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering will need to satisfy the requirements of the Engineering Practice hurdle prior to being awarded the degree.

Hurdle Objectives

Before completion of the degree students should be able to

  • analyse job advertisements and selection criteria to identify the graduate attributes an employer is seeking
  • compare evidence of their attribute acquisition with those sought by employers
  • plan the further development of their attributes to meet career goals
  • prepare a portfolio of evidence of acquisition of attributes that meet a particular employers’ needs.

Hurdle Requirement

Preparation and submission of two portfolios totalling 2000 words in the final semester of their degree to the satisfaction of the course co-ordinator. Completion of the degree will not be approved until they meet this requirement. Details of the required submissions will be provided early in Semester 1.
