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.
