Major Structure

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

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

3691 Bachelor of Engineering Science

This Major will be offered at Parramatta and Penrith campuses.

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.
