Program aims

The Bachelor of Engineering provides students with the knowledge and skills that are necessary to commence practice as a professional engineer and to undertake further advanced level studies in engineering. Specifically the program provides students with a core of basic generic and technical skills, common to all branches of engineering, and then permits students to undertake an in depth study of either agricultural, civil, computer systems, electrical and electronic, environmental, instrumentation and control, mechanical, mechatronic, power engineering. In addition, students are equipped with a knowledge of the industrial and social environments in which they will function as professional engineers. The program also seeks to instill in students a capacity to communicate effectively and adapt to change.

The Bachelor of Engineering is primarily vocationally oriented. However, the program has been designed to identify students who have the capacity to undertake further study at an advanced level and to make an original contribution to engineering knowledge. These students are encouraged to undertake the course ENG8001 Engineering Research Methods as one of their Elective courses. This, and the two Research Project courses, will assist them in achieving these goals.

Program fees

Commonwealth supported place

A Commonwealth supported place is where the Australian Government makes a contribution towards the cost of a students' higher education and students pay a student contribution amount, which varies depending on the courses undertaken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Commonwealth Supported students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called HECS-HELP.

Domestic full fee paying place

Domestic full fee paying places are funded entirely through the full fees paid by the student. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Domestic full fee paying students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called FEE-HELP provided they meet the residency and citizenship requirements.

Australian citizens, Permanent Humanitarian Visa holders, Permanent Resident visa holders and New Zealand citizens who will be resident outside Australia for the duration of their program pay full tuition fees and are not eligible for FEE-Help.

International full fee paying place

International students pay full fees. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken and whether they are studied on-campus, via distance education/online. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Program structure

The Bachelor of Engineering is a 32 unit program consisting of Academic courses and Practice courses.

Academic courses are normally one-unit courses and involve approximately 155 hours of student work per unit.

Practice courses are zero unit courses and each involves approximately 50 hours of student work. The only grades available for a Practice Course are Pass (P) and Fail (F). A Practice Course is designed to enable students to acquire specific competencies associated with their major study. These competencies range from specific practical and communication skills through to generic competencies relating to ethical and social responsibility, awareness of the environment, teamwork, etc. For an external student a Practice Course generally involves attendance on-campus for a one-week residential school.

The components of the program are shown in the following table:

Program Component  Academic Courses  Practice Courses 
Number of Courses  Units  Number of Courses  Units 
Core Studies  12  12 
Major Study  20  20  3-5 depending upon the major 
Total  32  32  3-8

Program completion requirements

The Bachelor of Engineering involves either four years of full-time study or eight years of part-time study. To be eligible for the award students must complete the program within a maximum period of six years full-time study or 10 years part-time study from the date of their initial enrolment. Some courses in the Agricultural Engineering major are not yet available in external mode. In that case, students may need to spend up to two terms full-time on-campus to complete those courses. The Instrumentation and Control Engineering major is designed for process technologists in industry who wish to upgrade their qualifications. As such, the program will normally be undertaken by external study. Students who undertake the program by a combination of external and full-time study must complete their studies within nine years from the date of their initial enrolment to be eligible for the award.

These modes are available in each major shown in the following table.

Electives/Approved courses

In the Bachelor of Engineering, students are not required to undertake the Elective courses until the third and fourth levels of the program. This enables students enrolled in the second level of the program to discuss their choice of Electives with their Faculty. The most popular choices of courses for Electives may thus be timetabled to allow students to attend in their third and fourth years of study. Appropriate Electives are shown in the tables in the Recommended Enrolment Pattern section. Students may undertake only one appropriate level five or level eight course from the Bachelor of Engineering or another Engineering and Built Environment program as an Elective with the approval of the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences. The Faculty may approve a variation in Elective studies where the student can demonstrate that there is a sound academic argument for the change. Arguments based on timetable difficulties, quota problems etc. will not normally be entertained. Note however that students who wish to enrol in courses other than those listed must obtain the written approval from the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences prior to enrolling in the course if they want the course to count as credit towards their award.

Students should note that quota restrictions may preclude their enrolment in particular Elective study courses as students enrolling in these courses as part of their core or major studies will be given enrolment priority.

Back to top

Practical experience

To be eligible to graduate from the Bachelor of Engineering, students must obtain an aggregate of at least 60 days of suitable practical experience during their program. This experience may be in an engineering office or laboratory where the student would be working principally with professional engineers and engineering associates. It may, however, be preferable for students to spend some time in field or factory activities to gain insight into industrial practice and to see what is involved in converting designs into finished products. Students are required to enrol in ENG4909 Work Experience - Professional in the latter part of their program and keep a record of appropriate experience as specified in the Course Specification. The work experience is to be endorsed by an appropriate person in the organisation providing the experience and submitted to the examiner. The student must meet all costs associated with the acquisition of practical experience to satisfy this requirement. The record of work experience must be made available for perusal by the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences upon request. The acceptability or otherwise of employment experience, and the period of that type of experience that may be credited towards the 60 days, will be determined by the Examiner of ENG4909 Work Experience - Professional .

IT requirements

Access to an up-to-date computer is necessary. On-campus students can access appropriately equipped laboratories, but should consider acquisition of their own computer. External students should be able to access a computer with the following minimum standards as advised by the University. All students should have access to email and the Internet via a computer running the latest versions of Internet web browsers such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. The University has a wireless network for on-campus students' computers. In order to take advantage of this facility and further enhance their on-campus learning environment, students should consider purchasing a notebook/laptop computer with wireless connectivity. A notebook/laptop may be required for some courses.

Residential schools

The attendance requirement of residential schools within this degree is indicated by the following letters: V = Voluntary; O = Optional; C = Compulsory; R = Recommended; HR = Highly Recommended; M = Mandatory. Find out more about residential schools, visit the Residential School Schedule to view specific dates for your degree, or visit the Policy and Procedure Library.

Students enrolled in the external offer of a Practice Course must attend the residential school for that course. In some cases students enrolled in the on-campus mode may also be required to attend the residential school. Students should only enrol in a Practice Course when they are able to attend the residential school for that course. Practice courses may not be taken earlier than shown except with the permission of the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences. In some cases students may enrol in two Practice courses in one term so they can complete the two residential schools in a two-week period. The actual dates for each residential school are shown in the Residential School schedule in this Handbook.

Safety boots are compulsory in engineering laboratories for several of the Practice courses and are strongly recommended for all other Practice courses.

Practice courses

The majority of the practical and professional experience requirements for the program are contained within the major recommended enrolment pattern in the following table. These are zero unit courses, which are a compulsory part of the program, however they do not attract a student contribution charge for Australian Residents or a tuition fee for international students.
ENG3902 Professional Practice 1 is to be studied in the student's penultimate year. Upon completion of ENG3902 Professional Practice 1, students must study ENG4111 Research Project Part 1 and ENG4112 Research Project Part 2 and ENG4903 Professional Practice 2 in the same academic year.
