Structure & Available Subjects:

THERE IS NO FURTHER INTAKE INTO THIS COURSE. COURSE STRUCTURE ONLY APPLIES TO STUDENTS COMMENCING PRIOR TO 2010.

Completion of 400 points of study.

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 (100 points normally 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

Plus

  • Two breadth subjects (i.e. 25.00 credit points total)
  • Two science 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.
  • Science subjects could be chosen to keep options open for other streams of engineering (e.g. chemistry, informatics and physics subjects) or be chosen for disciplines not directly related to engineering.

Second Year (100 points normally taken in Year 2)

Core (total 62.5 points)

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

Plus

  • Two breadth subjects (25.00 credit points)
  • One science or engineering elective (12.50 credit points)

N.B.

  • 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 engineering elective is any subject offered by the Melbourne School of Engineering and requires the approval of the stream coordinator.

Third Year (100 points normally taken in Year 3)

Please note: In 2013 ENGR30001 Fluid Mechanics & Thermodynamics was replaced with ENGR30002 Fluid Mechanics. Students who have completed ENGR30001 are not required to completed ENGR30002
