The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is a four year degree program with common first year structure. The program has been designed to meet Engineers Australia professional accreditation requirements – Competency Stage 1 Professional Engineers and Australian Quality Frameworks (AQF) Level 8. It allows students the opportunity to choose a discipline area by selecting a key program in Civil, Construction, Electrical, Mechanical, and Robotic and Mechatronic engineering. In addition, students can specialise by selecting a sub-major from a wide range of recommended alternate unit sets that will complement their chosen discipline.
The future presents significant challenges for managing the environment, infrastructure and technological developments. Effective solutions to these challenges will require innovative engineering, applied science and design strategies.
At Western Sydney University, we prepare our students to take on those challenges and succeed. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree covers all major engineering domains, and you can experience many facets of engineering before deciding your area of specialisation at the end of your first year.
In 2017 Engineering (Honours) majors - Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical - will be offered at our new Sydney City campus in the heart of the CBD.
Full-time Autumn intake
All students undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) are required to enrol in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary and undertake a readiness test at the beginning of their study. The readiness test will be conducted at the beginning of the first semester of enrolment and the result will be used to determine whether a student will remain in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary or be transferred by the School to 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1. Students remaining in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary will be required to complete 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1 during second semester and will be encouraged to complete 200238 Mathematics for Engineers 2 during the Summer session.
