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.

Innovation and Transdisciplinary program

Transdisciplinarity and Innovation at UTS

All UTS students have the opportunity to develop distinctive capabilities around transdisciplinary thinking and innovation through the TD School. Transdisciplinary education at UTS brings together great minds from different disciplines to explore ideas that improve the way we live and work in the world. These offerings are unique to UTS and directly translate to many existing and emerging roles and careers.

Diploma in Innovation

The Diploma in Innovation (C20060) teaches innovation, supports personal transformation and provides the hard skills needed to support the inventors and inventions of the future. Students come out of the Diploma in Innovation, with the hard skills to create and support sectoral and societal transformation. Graduates are able to fluently integrate ideas, across professional disciplines and are inventors of the future.

All UTS undergraduate students (with the exception of students concurrently enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation) can apply for the Diploma in Innovation upon admission in their chosen undergraduate degree. It is a complete degree program that runs in parallel to any undergraduate degree. The course is offered on a three-year, part-time basis, with subjects running in 3-week long intensive blocks in July, December and February sessions. More information including a link to apply is available at https://dipinn.uts.edu.au.

Transdisciplinary electives program

Transdisciplinary electives broaden students' horizons and supercharge their problem-solving skills, helping them to learn outside, beyond and across their degrees. Students enrolled in an undergraduate course that includes electives can choose to take a transdisciplinary subject (with the exception of students concurrently enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation). More information about the TD Electives program is available here.

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 complete the Year 12 Engineering and IT Questionnaire. The questionnaire allows applicants to demonstrate their strong motivation to study engineering or IT at UTS and may assist applicants whose ATAR falls short of the required cut-off by up to three points.

Non-current school leavers are advised to complete the employment question on their UAC application as adjustment factors may be applied 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 with a writing score of 50; or C1A/C2P: 176-184 with a writing score of 169.
