Overview:

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

Learning Outcomes:

See Bachelor of Engineering (B-ENG)

Structure & Available Subjects:

Completion of 400 points of study culminating in an industry 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)

Subject
Study Period Commencement:
Credit Points:
Summer Term, Semester 2
12.50
Semester 1, Semester 2
12.50
Semester 1, Semester 2
12.50
Semester 1, Semester 2
12.50
Semester 1
12.50

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.

Second Year (normally 100 points taken in Year 2)

Plus

  • One breadth subject (i.e. 12.50 credit points total)
  • One science elective (i.e. 12.50 credit points total)
  • One approved elective (i.e. 12.50 credit points total)

NB.

  • Students who have completed VCE Specialist Mathematics (or equivalent) and completed either both MAST10006 Calculus 2 and MAST10007 Linear Algebra or both MAST10008 Accelerated Mathematics 1 and MAST10009 Accelerated Mathematics 2 in Year 1 can replace MAST10007 Linear Algebra in the table above with a science elective.
  • An approved elective is either a science elective or, with approval of the coordinator of this specialisation, any other subject for which the student has the appropriate prerequisites.

Third Year (normally 100 points taken in Year 3)

N.B.

  • Students who have taken ECON10004 Introductory Microeconomics as breadth must replace the core subject MCEN90010 Finance & Human Resources for Engineers with MGMT20001 Organisational Behaviour.
  • Students who have completed MGMT20001 Organisational Behaviour as breadth must use MGMT20001 to replace the core subject MCEN90010 Finance & Human Resources for Engineers Students and take ECON10004 Introductory Microeconomics as breadth.
  • Students may also enrol in both ECON10004 Introductory Microeconomics and MGMT20001 Organisational Behaviour as breadth and replace MCEN90010 Finance & Human Resources for Engineers with a science elective (see above).
  • Students will need to contact their student centre in order to make any of the above adjustments on their study plan.
  • Credit may not be obtained for both MCEN30018 Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics and ENGR30001 Fluid Mechanics & Thermodynamics
