THIS COURSE IS FOR THOSE STUDENTS COMMENCING 2008 AND BEYOND.
The Bachelor of Engineering is a four-year full time program, which caters to students who wish to obtain an accredited engineering degree (400 points, 100 points of credit earned each year).
To satisfy course requirements students must take the set of core engineering subjects prescribed for the branch of engineering being studied.
This program is for those students commencing in 2008 and beyond (compared to the pre-2008 program) and offers enhanced flexibility and breadth opportunities, and allows a common first year with the Engineering Systems majors in the Bachelor of Science and maintains alternative pathways between Engineering and Science (for example Electrical or Mechanical Engineering and Physics, and Software Engineering and Mathematics or Computer Science) for up to two full years. Students commencing in 2008 and beyond study two breadth subjects in first year followed by another one or two (depending upon the stream chosen) breadth subjects in second year.
Students will make use of the Engineering Learning Centre, which provides out-of-class study and meeting spaces for students. Students will be able to access on-line information such as the Learning Management System (LMS), study on their own and meet and collaborate with other students on project work and classwork, within a comfortable and supportive environment. Specialised learning spaces have been developed for students to participate in problem-based learning opportunities, commencing in first year with Engineering Systems Design 1 and 2, common subjects for all Bachelor of Engineering streams.
Upon completion of the four year Bachelor of Engineering, it is possible for a student to be awarded a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours where the student has achieved a consistently high level of academic performance throughout their course. Eligibility for the Honours award is dependent on a calculated honours score.
Engineering Practice Hurdle Requirement
Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering will need to satisfy the requirements of the Engineering Practice hurdle prior to being awarded the degree.
Before completion of the degree students should be able to
Preparation and submission of two portfolios totalling 2000 words in the final semester of their degree to the satisfaction of the course co-ordinator. Completion of the degree will not be approved until they meet this requirement. Details of the required submissions will be provided early in Semester 1.
|Objectives:||On completion of this course graduates should: |
|Course Structure & Available Subjects:||
400 points of study normally undertaken full time over four years.
A student’s choice of engineering stream will determine which subjects must be taken.
The Bachelor of Engineering includes a breadth component – studies taken outside areas of engineering, science and technology.
Subject options are dependent upon the student’s intended stream of engineering.
|Breadth Options:|| |
Breadth subjects offer you the opportunity to choose additional subjects from outside your major study area (learn more about breadth subjects) .
No new first year intake into this course after 2010.
Students enquiring about later year intake (e.g. students intending to transfer into Engineering after completion of a least one year full time equivalent of relevant engineering studies) should contact the EPSC for advice.
|Core Participation Requirements:||
The Faculty of Engineering welcomes applications from students with disabilities. It is University and Faculty policy to take all reasonable steps to enable the participation of students with disabilities, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student’s participation in the Faculty’s programs.
The inherent academic requirements for study in the Faculty of Engineering are:
|Further Study:||On completion of a Bachelor of Engineering, students may choose to apply for candidature in a Masters by Research (Master of Philosophy) or PhD degree. They may also apply to undertake a range of Specialised Masters coursework degrees.|
The Bachelor of Engineering is a professional degree. Graduates can obtain professional recognition by joining Engineers Australia, which has accredited these programs. For details, see 'Objectives'.
|Professional Accreditation:||Accreditation has been received from: |
|Generic Skills:||An Engineering graduate has a unique skill set comprising a blend of technical, business and interpersonal skills. Upon completion of the Bachelor of Engineering at the University of Melbourne, students will have strong analytical skills, the ability to lead teams and projects and the creativity to look at problems in a way that provides innovative solutions.
