Course overview

The Bachelor of Engineering Science is designed to develop technology-focused scientists capable of creating engineering solutions to sport and medical related problems.  The course provides you with the theoretical foundation, technical skills and expertise needed to design and develop sports equipment, instrumentation and other sports related products as well as medical and physiological instrumentation, prosthetics, and other healthcare devices.  

 

The course is designed for technically-minded students who are seeking a modern and specialised educational experience unique in Australia.  You have the opportunity to take part in industry-based learning, internships and a final-year project to help you gain workplace experience and develop valuable networks.  The units are mostly prescribed, with engineering, physiology and exercise and sport science units studied at each level.

 

The course has a common first year that will allow you to make an informed decision when choosing one of the areas listed below to specialise in.

  • Sports technology - electrical
  • Sports technology - mechanical
  • Medical technology

Graduating students have the opportunity to undertake further studies in honours (research) and PhD programs. 

 

Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.

Course rules

The course comprises a total of 24 credit points, which must include the following:

  • Ten credit points of core units (HBS109, SED102, SEE103, SEP122, SIT190, SLE111, SLE131, HSE202, SLE251, SEJ344)
  • Three Safety Induction Program units (0 credit points)
    • HSE010 Exercise and Sport Laboratory Safety;
    • SEE010 Safety Induction Program; and
    • SLE010 Laboratory and Fieldwork Safety Induction Program
  • At least one major study from:
    • Sports Technology – Electrical (10 credit points)
    • Sports Technology – Mechanical (10 credit points)
    • Medical Technology (9 credit points)
  • The remaining units can be undertaken as elective units chosen from any units across the University, provided unit rules (including prerequisites and campus restrictions) have been met, and noting the following:
    • No more than 10 credit points at level 1, and
    • At least 6 level 3 units, of which 4 must be course grouped.
    • Elective offerings can be used to broaden the focus from sport performance to include physical activity and public health applications of engineering to assessment of physical activity and also development of tools/technologies to promote physical activity. Such electives may include HSE203, HSE316 and HSE212.
