Engineers are leaders in developing novel approaches to solving the biggest challenges faced by environmental and interrelated systems. In this Major, students assess the impact of industrial development then propose design solutions using holistic, futuristic and sustainable technologies and strategies. Through hands-on, real-life projects, students explore solutions that integrate technical, technological (IoT), social, cultural, geographical, regulatory and ethical factors particularly in relation to water, air and land. This major will benefit students aiming for careers such as Environmental Engineer/Scientist/Consultant, Natural Resources Manager, Waste Engineer/Manger/ Consultant, and Sustainability Engineer/ Manager/ Consultant. This major includes a mandatory 300 to 450 hour industrial placement as a completion requirement.

Major Structure

This major is included in Bachelor of Engineering Science, Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Bachelor of Engineering Advanced (Honours) and Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Business.

Please follow the recommended sequence for your course as noted below.

3691 Bachelor of Engineering Science

Qualification for this award requires the successful completion of 240 credit points, which include the units listed in the recommended sequence below.

* All students undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering Science are required to enrol in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary and undertake a readiness test at the beginning of their study.

The readiness 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 will be encouraged to complete 200238 Mathematics for Engineers 2 during the Summer session.

Students who finish 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary will then use this unit as an elective.
