Course Structure & Available Subjects: |
The standard BE/BSc combined degrees require a total of 500 points, within which students must take a minimum of 300 engineering points and 237.5 science points. The total points of a standard course can be kept to 500 as at least 50 points of core material within the various streams of engineering also earn science points.
To satisfy course requirements students must: take the set of core engineering subjects prescribed for the branch of engineering being studied. This will include the professional study requirements in one of chemical engineering, civil engineering, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering; and either electrical, computer or software engineering; accumulate a minimum of 237.5 science points, which must include: between 75 and 125 points at 100-level; completion of 50 points of a prescribed science major at the 300-level. Detailed information on the science majors available is contained within the course entry for the Bachelor of Science (course code 755-BB)
With regard to the science component note that: There are no specific requirements at the 200-level. Science points are awarded for the completion of science subjects listed in the Faculty of Science section of this Handbook. The majority of subjects listed in this section earn science credit, although there are exceptions. Some subjects offered by the Department of Information Systems, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and School of Earth Sciences do not earn science credit. If a subject does not earn science credit it is labelled as non-science in the subject description. Any subject that does not appear in the science section of this Handbook is a non-science subject. The engineering component may require the completion of specific (generally 100-level) science subjects. These subjects are detailed in the requirements of the various engineering courses that follow in the departmental entries. A science major in computer science is not available to students undertaking the Software Engineering stream in the BE. These students will be required to undertake a major in an alternative science discipline (e.g. mathematics and statistics). Students will not normally be permitted to complete more than 237.5 science points. Selection of science subjects Students are normally able to enrol in any subjects earning science credit where they have satisfied the prerequisite and corequisite requirements. These requirements are included in individual subject descriptions. Note that some science subjects are quota-restricted as the demand for the subject exceeds the number of places available. Selection into quota subjects is based on academic merit. Refer to the Faculty of Science section Quota subjects Students who commenced prior to 1999 Students who first enrolled in the combined engineering/science course before 1999 must complete the requirements set out above with the exception that they do not need to complete a prescribed science major, but rather 50 points at 300-level made up of science subjects of their choice. |
