The Bachelor of Engineering is a four year degree program with common first year structure. The program has been designed to meet Engineers Australia professional accreditation requirements. It allows students the opportunity to choose a discipline area by selecting a key program in Civil, Construction, Electrical, Mechanical, and Robotic & Mechatronic engineering. In addition, students can specialise by selecting a sub-major from a wide range of recommended unit sets that will compliment their chosen discipline. An honours stream is available to students during fourth year of their study; students will be invited to undertake honours thesis based on overall academic performance in the first three years of their engineering study.

Full-time - Autumn intake

Year 1

Autumn session

All students undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering are required to enroll in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary and undertake a diagnostic test at the beginning of their study. The diagnostic test will be conducted at the beginning of the first semester of enrolment and the result will be used to determine whether a student will remain in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary or be transferred by the School to 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1. Students remaining in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary will be required to complete 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1 during second semester and be encouraged to complete 200238 Mathematics for Engineers 2 during the Summer session.
