Overview:

THE COURSE STRUCTURE BELOW ONLY APPLIES TO RE-ENROLLING STUDENTS WHO COMMENCED THEIR STUDIES PRIOR TO 2010

please see Bachelor of Engineering (B-ENG)

Learning Outcomes:

See Bachelor of Engineering (B-ENG)

Structure & Available Subjects:

Completion of 400 points of study culminating in a project in the final year.

The structure of the Bachelor of Engineering degree requires completion of specific subjects as part of this stream. The majority of subjects have one or more prerequisites and therefore the sequence in which subjects are taken is very important. It is unlikely that prerequisite waivers will be granted for these engineering subjects and therefore students should take care to select subjects in one study period that satisfy prerequisites for subjects in later study periods.

Subject Options:

The following subjects are required for this stream of the Bachelor of Engineering.

First Year (normally 100 points taken in Year 1)

Plus

  • Two breadth subjects (i.e. 25.00 credit points total)

N.B.

  • Students who have completed VCE Specialist Mathematics (or equivalent) are exempt from MAST10005 Calculus 1 and should therefore enrol in MAST10006 Calculus 2 and MAST10007 Linear Algebra.
  • Students with a high level of achievement in mathematics may enrol in both MAST10008 Accelerated Mathematics 1 and MAST10009 Accelerated Mathematics 2 instead of both MAST10006 Calculus 2 and MAST10007 Linear Algebra.
  • Students with a high level of achievement in physics may enrol in PHYC10001 Physics 1 Advanced and PHYC10002 Physics 2 Advanced instead of both PHYC10003 Physics 1 and PHYC10004 Physics 2: Physical Science & Technology.
