The Bachelor of Engineering Advanced (Honours) is a four year honours degree program. The program has been designed to meet Engineers Australia professional accreditation requirements. Students have the opportunity to focus on a discipline area by selecting a Major in Advanced Manufacturing, Civil, Construction, Electrical, Materials, Mechanical, Robotic & Mechatronic, Software, and Sustainability engineering. In addition, students can specialise by selecting a Minor from a wide range of recommended subject sets that will complement their chosen discipline. Honours class will be awarded at completion of four years of study, based on the overall academic performance during the study period. Students in this program will need to maintain a minimum GPA of 5.0 at the end of completion of 160 credit points, and again at the completion of 200 credit points; those not meeting this academic performance requirement will be transferred to Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) program (Software Engineering excluded).

Parts of this course may be taught at the Parramatta City - Hassall St campus or at the Parramatta South campus.

Study Mode
Four years full-time study or eight years part-time.

The Key Programs of Electrical, Mechanical and Robotics & Mechatronics are currently under provisional accreditations from EA at Parramatta (South) Campus and full accreditation at Penrith (Kingswood) Campus. Transition to full accreditation at Parramatta Campus will be sought in 2022. The Key Program of Software Engineering will seek provisional accreditations from EA and ACS both in 2021. Full accreditation will be sought after the first cohort graduates in 2025.
