Practical experience

To be eligible to graduate from the Bachelor of Engineering Science, students must obtain an aggregate of at least 45 days of suitable work 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 ENG3909 Work Experience - Technologist 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 work 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 45 days, will be determined by the Examiner of ENG3909 Work Experience - Technologist.

Credit or exemptions for ENG3909 Work Experience - Technologist will not normally be considered.

Back to top

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. Specialist software is 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 are required to undertake practical and professional activities relevant to their program through enrolment in a series of Practice courses in the program. Practice courses are zero unit courses that may be undertaken in either on-campus or external mode and the final grades available are Pass (P)/Fail (F) only. They are a compulsory part of the program and do not attract a student contribution charge for Australian residents or a tuition fee for international students. The recommended enrolment schedule for Practice courses is shown in the Recommended Enrolment Pattern for the program in this Handbook.

External students must attend a number of residential schools during their program to obtain experience in practical and professional activities appropriate to the program. The residential schools are included in Practice courses which are conducted in Semester 3 or during the recess periods. The dates for each residential school Practice course are shown in the Residential School schedule in this Handbook and external students should ensure they are able to attend the residential school prior to enrolling in a Practice course. Personal protective equipment is compulsory in many engineering, construction and spatial science laboratories, student should confirm the requirements before attending residential schools for Practice courses.

Student who enrol in on-campus mode for Practice courses normally undertake a series of weekly activities and/or attend a compulsory residential school.

Articulation

Students who have completed a Bachelor of Engineering Science program, or equivalent, may articulate to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). The amount of credit granted depends upon the field of study and approved courses completed in the Bachelor of Engineering Science program and the field of study selected in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and is maximised for students undertaking the pathway to Bachelor of Engineering (Honours).

Students who have completed a Bachelor of Engineering Science program in a cognate major and have completed courses ENG3300, ENG3311 and ENG3312, or have completed a Bachelor of Engineering Science program in a cognate major and five years of relevant industry experience at an appropriate level, may articulate to the Master of Engineering Practice.

Back to top

Exit points

Students who, for whatever reason, are unable to complete the Bachelor of Engineering Science and who satisfy all of the requirements of either the Associate Degree of Engineering or the Diploma of Engineering Studies may be permitted to exit with that award.

Back to top

Credit

Exemptions/credit will be assessed based on the USQ Credit and Exemption Procedure.

Work Experience

Work and industrial experience that has not been formally assessed, does not normally qualify for course credit in the Bachelor of Engineering Science program. The MEPR Master of Engineering Practice and the BENS/MEPR Engineering Practice Pathway has been established with the capacity of recognising and formally assessing industrial and work integrated learning (WIL) experience. Existing work experience may be used to satisfy the practical/work experience requirements when completing the ENG3909 Work Experience - Technologist practice course.

Back to top

Other information

The Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences may permit a student to enrol in an approved course other than those specified for the accredited program. Students who wish to enrol in approved courses other than those listed, must obtain written approval from their Program Coordinator prior to enrolling in the course.

Engineering pathways

Pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

A pathway has been developed for students who intend to study the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) once they have completed the Bachelor of Engineering Science program. Pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) maximises the advanced standing (exemptions) students will receive in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) program. A pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) has been developed for each of the following Bachelor of Engineering Science majors into the equivalent Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) major:

  • Agricultural Engineering

  • Civil Engineering

  • Computer Systems Engineering

  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering

  • Environmental Engineering

  • Mechanical Engineering

  • Power Engineering


The pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) has been specially developed for students who study part-time. Full-time students may seek approval to follow the pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), but it is not timetabled for on-campus students.

Students must have the approval of the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences to undertake the pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). Students are strongly advised to consider and apply for approval for this pathway as soon as possible in order to maximise the credit they will receive in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). This should be done prior to the commencement of the second year of studies if possible or after successful completion of at least eight academic courses including ENM1600 Engineering Mathematics.

The Faculty will take into consideration a student's GPA before granting approval.

Once approval is granted, the Faculty will advise students of the courses they should study when granting approval for them to follow the Pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) .

Pathway to the Master of Engineering Practice

An engineering practice pathway has been developed for students who intend to study the Master of Engineering Practice once they have completed the Bachelor of Engineering Science program. The BENS engineering practice pathway is designed to enable experienced engineering Associates to draw on their industrial experience to demonstrate their achievement of the required generic and technical capabilities to Engineers Australia Stage 2 Experienced Technologist Competency attributes. The engineering practice pathway is an option for students who hold an Associate Degree of Engineering or close equivalent and have five years of relevant industry experience at the time they enter the Bachelor of Engineering Science Program. The pathway includes the approved courses ENG3300 Industry Experience Evaluation Portfolio, ENG3311 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project A and ENG3312 Technologist Work Integrated Learning B. The pathway courses will allow students claim credit for up to four nominated core courses in the Bachelor of Engineering Science. Students who have the appropriate industrial experience, and are eligible for 10 or more exemptions upon entry into the BENS program may undertake this pathway. The ENG3300 Industry Experience Evaluation Portfolio will enable students to assess their existing attributes and capabilities, and complete a technologist workplace e-portfolio to demonstrate their level of competency achievements. They will also nominate and map these achievements to nominated BENS technical courses outcomes for credit by workplace integrated learning (WIL) reports and other competency assessment when undertaking the ENG3311 and ENG3312 courses. These courses require students to develop Career Episode Reports (CERs), verified by a professional supervisor, preferably a professional engineer, to demonstrate their work integrated learning (WIL) experience in the Workplace Portfolio and plan their BENS engineering practice program pathway to graduation. This pathway to graduation includes the student’s plan for their WIL Reports to demonstrate technical competency defined by the learning objectives of their nominated BENS course they are seeking credit for by their WIL experience. Both outcomes will be assessed to the level of competency achieved with respect to Engineers Australia's (EA) Stage 2 experienced Technologist Competencies, but also articulated up against the broader discipline (EA) Stage 1 (Graduate) Professional Engineer Competencies.

A passing grade in ENG3300 Industry Experience Evaluation Portfolio does not guarantee that students are advised to enrol in ENG3311 or ENG3312. To continue in ENG3311 and ENG3312, the student must demonstrate that they have the required experiences or competencies. If the student is not deemed to be eligible to continue in ENG3311 or ENG3312, they will not continue in the BENS engineering practice pathway, but resume the usual academic BENS standard enrolment pattern. In such a case, if the student passes ENG3300, the course will be deemed a credit upon resuming the BENS academic enrolment pattern.

The course ENG3300 Industry Experience Evaluation Portfolio is pre-requisite to ENG3311 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project A and ENG3312 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project B. It is designed to enable students to firstly assess the amount of credit that they could granted based on their work experience and their ability to complete either ENG3311 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project A and ENG3312 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project B. As part of ENG3300 Industry Experience Evaluation Portfolio, students produce a self-assessed portfolio in which they nominate the Bachelor of Engineering Science core courses that they will address in ENG3311 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project A and in ENG3312 Technologist Work Integrated Learning Project B. The course examiner will assess the portfolio and may direct students to do ENG3311 for a claim of up to two credit units or to do both ENG3311 and ENG3312 for a claim of up to four credit units.

The Engineering Practice Pathway is only available for the Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Power Engineering majors. Prospective Engineering Practice Pathway students should visit the Engineers Australia web site to gain an understanding of the processes which will be followed. In particular, they should view the Engineering Technologist Stage Two Competencies and the guidelines for achieving Chartered Technologist status.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering major full-time recommended enrolment pattern (Toowoomba and Springfield campus)

Students are able to enrol in any offered mode of a course (on-campus, external or online), regardless of the program mode of study they enrolled in.

To satisfy the requirements of the program students must complete all of the Academic and Practice Courses in the following table that shows the recommended enrolment patterns for on-campus and external students for both Toowoomba and Springfield campuses. Students following a non-standard enrolment pattern should consult the course specification to ascertain if a course is offered in another term. Students wishing to further their knowledge of software may be allowed to choose one approved course from courses offered by the School of Agricultural, Computational and Environmental Sciences. Interested students should peruse the course specification to see what is available and then seek permission to undertake the course from the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences. A maximum of one unit may be selected.

On entering the Bachelor of Engineering Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering external students are required to purchase a kit of tools comprising an electronic soldering iron, wire strippers, long nose pliers, diagonal cutter, safety glasses and an electronic prototyping 'breadboard'. These will first be required for ELE2501 Electronic Workshop and Production and ELE1502 Electronic Circuits, and further details will be provided on commencement of these courses. Additionally, all students enrolled in course ELE2501 Electronic Workshop and Production will be required to purchase an electronic kit costing approximately $80. For ELE2702 Electrical Measurement and Analysis, access to an analogue multimeter and hook-up wire may be required, together with the purchase of some electronic components.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Pathway

It is recommended that students wishing to continue into the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) program using a Pathway should have completed at least eight courses. Pathway students should enrol in ELE2103 Linear Systems and Control instead of ELE2101 Control and Instrumentation, ELE2504 Electronic Design and Analysis instead of ELE2503 Electronic Systems, and enrol in ENM2600 Advanced Engineering Mathematics, ENG3104 Engineering Simulations and Computations and two Pathway courses as their approved courses.
