Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Science course takes five and a half years to complete on a full-time basis or part time equivalent (unless trimesters are fully utilised by students).

You may combine one of the engineering major sequences - civil, electrical and electronics, mechanical or mechatronics and robotics engineering - with a Science stream, for example, Biology, Biological Chemistry, Chemistry, Mathematical Modelling and Zoology. Only the Mathematical Modelling major is available in Cloud (online) mode.

Career opportunities

The Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Science offers you the chance to broaden your career opportunities after graduation.  The opportunities available will depend on the major sequences you take within your course.  For information on career outcomes for this combined course see the entries for Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of  Engineering.
