Program structure

The Bachelor of Engineering Technology program consists of core, major study and Elective components. Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering Technology program may undertake a professional specialisation in one of seven major discipline areas:

  • Agricultural Engineering

  • Civil Engineering

  • Computer Systems Engineering

  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering

  • Environmental Engineering

  • Infrastructure Management

  • Mechanical Engineering

  • Power Engineering.


The Bachelor of Engineering Technology program comprises 24 academic and several practice units and involves three years of full-time study or six years of part-time study. The program is available in the on-campus mode and in the external mode of study. In order to be eligible for the award, students must complete the program within a maximum of five years of full-time study, or 10 years of part-time study, from the date of their initial enrolment.

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

To satisfy the requirements of the program students must complete all of the Academic courses and the Practice courses in the following tables that show the recommended enrolment patterns for on-campus and external students. Students following a non-standard enrolment pattern should consult the course specification to ascertain if a course is offered in another term.

The program structure for each of the major studies in the Bachelor of Engineering Technology is shown in the following pages.

Back to top

Required time limits

Full-time students have a maximum of five years to complete this program. Part-time students have a maximum of 10 years to complete this program.
A pro-rata adjustment of the maximum time period will apply for those students who transfer from one mode of study to another. A pro-rata reduction in the maximum time period will apply to students who are admitted to a program with advanced standing.

Back to top

Practical experience

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

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.

External students are required to attend a number of residential schools during their program. These are associated with Practice Courses and are normally conducted at the end of Semester 3 (February), or during the mid-semester recess in Semester 2 (September/October).

The majority of the practical and professional experience requirements for the program are contained within the major recommended enrolment pattern. 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.

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 School responsible for the program. 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.
