Overview

This combined degree is designed to provide opportunities for students interested in science, the scientific basis of engineering and technology, and the technology itself. Graduates of this course work as cutting edge professionals where science and engineering interact dynamically.

There is a strong interrelation between the progress of engineering and developments in science, and a demonstrated need for professionals with a strong understanding and experience in both areas.

Students have the option of undertaking honours in science, or an additional two internships to gain the Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice, or both.

This combined degree can be completed in less time than would be required to complete the two degrees separately.

Course aims

This course aims to produce graduates with professional qualifications in science and engineering who are well prepared to pursue a career in either field, or one that combines the skills of both. Students develop valuable skills highly prized by employers, including the technological expertise to understand scientific problems and the design skills to implement solutions.

Career options

Career options depend on the majors and subjects chosen. Options include research, design and development, and scientific management. Graduates work in industry or government, in areas such as biotechnology, communications, energy and resource exploration, environmental protection, medical technology, molecular biology and materials technology, nanotechnology and transportation.

SCI.1.0 An understanding of the nature, practice and application of the chosen science discipline.
SCI.2.0 Encompasses problem solving, critical thinking and analysis attributes and an understanding of the scientific method knowledge acquisition.
SCI.3.0 The ability to acquire, develop, employ and integrate a range of technical, practical and professional skills, in appropriate and ethical ways within a professional context, autonomously and collaboratively and across a range of disciplinary and professional areas, e.g. time management skills, personal organisation skills, teamwork skills, computing skills, laboratory skills, data handling, quantitative and graphical literacy skills.
SCI.4.0 The capacity to engage in reflection and learning beyond formal educational contexts that is based on the ability to make effective judgments about one's own work. The capacity to learn in and from new disciplines to enhance the application of scientific knowledge and skills in professional contexts.

Key

SCI = Science course intended learning outcomes (CILOs)

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed an Australian Year 12 qualification, Australian Qualifications Framework Diploma, or equivalent Australian or overseas qualification at the required level.

Current school leavers are advised to submit a Year 12 Engineering Questionnaire to UTS.

Non-current school leavers are advised to complete the employment question on their UAC application as bonus points may be awarded on the basis of relevant work experience.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 176-184.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Applicants who successfully complete a recognised pathway program are also eligible to apply.

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Assumed knowledge

HSC Mathematics Extension 1; Physics; and English Standard.

English Advanced is recommended.

Credit recognition

Students who have previously undertaken study at a university or other recognised tertiary education institution may be eligible for some academic credit recognition for their prior study if the subjects previously completed are deemed by the faculty to be equivalent to subjects in the course.

The prior study must have been completed before commencement of this course, but no earlier than 10 years before commencement. Students must be able to demonstrate that their knowledge is current.

Course duration and attendance

The course duration is five years full time, 10 years part time, or six years full time with honours.

Full-time attendance involves up to 24 hours each week at the University. Part-time attendance involves up to 12 hours each week at the University. It is expected that employers will release part-time students for at least one half-day a week for attendance at classes.

Course structure

The program comprises a total of 246 credit points, made up of 168 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and 78 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Science.

The engineering component of this course is made up of subjects selected from the engineering core, engineering fields of practice (majors) and professional engineering practice.

The science component represents a specific science major.

Graduation from the science component of the combined degree is not possible prior to completion of all components of the combined degree. Students wishing to graduate with a Bachelor of Science prior to completion of the engineering component of the combined degree must apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Science (C10242) single degree program where they must complete all requirements for the stand-alone single degree version.

Similarly, if a student wishes to graduate from the engineering component of the combined degree prior to completion of the science component they must apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (C09066) single degree program where they must complete all requirements for the stand-alone single degree version, including the Engineering Work Experience subject.

Further, students wishing to graduate from the engineering component of the combined degree prior to completion of the science component must have completed at least 60 credit points of the science major (CBK90586).

Industrial training/professional practice

Students are required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks of engineering work experience.

A Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice is also available. The Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice requires the additional completion of two six-month internships and the professional engineering practice program.

Levels of award

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) may be awarded with first or second class honours, which does not require an additional honours year.

Honours

An honours program in science is available, which involves an extra year of full-time study. The honours program is designed to introduce students to more advanced coursework and to research work in science. It allows selected students to continue with postgraduate studies if desired and enhances their employment prospects.

Transfer between UTS courses

Students in this combined degree may transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice (C09067). International students may transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (C09066).

Professional recognition

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is accredited by Engineers Australia at the Graduate Professional Engineer level. Under the Washington Accord the degree is internationally recognised by the following countries: Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong China, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Depending on the discipline chosen, students may also be eligible for entry to other relevant professional associations.
