Are you curious about our world and what makes it work? This degree will prepare you to solve the biggest challenges facing civil, mechanical and coastal systems engineering.
The Bachelor of Engineering Systems (Honours) is designed to meet the requirements for accreditation at the level of Professional Engineer by Engineers Australia. Foundational core units build knowledge of the basic sciences, and the processes and philosophy that underpin the engineering profession.
You'll then choose a specialisation to build discipline knowledge and technical skills in your chosen area with a strong emphasis on project-based learning.
The final year of the course contains a mixture of advanced core units and advanced discipline-specific units that are designed to build skills in independent investigation, critical thinking, creative problem solving, and ethical and professional behaviour. A 60-day professional placement ensures you are ready to hit the ground running as a graduate.
The course is structured around 16 key competencies identified by Engineers Australia as being essential to the graduating engineer. These competencies are broadly grouped into: knowledge and skills, application, personal and professional skills.
Students in the Bachelor of Engineering Systems (Honours) will choose from one of the following specialisations:
Graduates will have opportunities to work as professional engineers in the broad engineering disciplines of civil engineering, mechanical engineering or coastal systems engineering as follows:
To be eligible to receive the Bachelor of Engineering Systems (Honours), students must complete the equivalent of 32 single-weighted units (384 credit points), comprising:
All students successfully completing this course will be awarded Honours. Additionally, a student who has reached the required standard of academic performance may, on the recommendation of the Course Coordinator, be awarded Honours with one of the following merit descriptors:
Honours merit descriptors will be determined based on a student's academic record throughout the course of study, as described on the Engineering Student Centre website.
