Overview

This course is an engineering technologist-level program which is similar in nature to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (C09066) but does not provide full professional engineering status.

This course provides students with the skills required at an engineering technologist level – and hence the ability to work with professional engineers – without developing full professional engineering competencies.

Career options

Career options include positions in engineering teams across the full spectrum of engineering activities. Specific career options depend on the major chosen.

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.

Course intended learning outcomes

A.1 Bachelor of Engineering Science graduates are culturally and historically informed, able to work as respectful professionals with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
B.1 Bachelor of Engineering Science graduates are socially responsible professionals, able to engage with a broad range of stakeholders, to assess personal, organisational, social, ethical and environmental needs and impacts of engineering systems.
C.1 Bachelor of Engineering Science graduates apply design techniques and appropriate methodologies to develop engineered systems and components to meet stakeholder requirements.
D.1 Bachelor of Engineering Science graduates apply a range of discipline fundamentals, mathematics, tools, and techniques to design, implement, operate and evaluate engineered systems.
E.1 Collaborative and Communicative: Bachelor of Engineering Science graduates work as effective team members, communicating effectively, and operating within diverse contexts.
F.1 Bachelor of Engineering Science graduates critically self-review their professional performance, to improve themselves and their teams.

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.

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.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

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.

Pathway course

International applicants who complete the UTS College Diploma of Engineering with no more than two subject failures are guaranteed admission to the Bachelor of Engineering Science with up to 48 credit points of recognition of prior learning.

Inherent requirements

Inherent requirements are academic and non-academic requirements that are essential to the successful completion of a course. For more information about inherent requirements and where prospective and current students can get assistance and advice regarding these, see the UTS Inherent requirements page.

Prospective and current students should carefully read the Inherent Requirements Statement below and consider whether they might experience challenges in successfully completing this course.

UTS will make reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, professional experiences, course related work experience and other course activities to facilitate maximum participation by students with disabilities, carer responsibilities, and religious or cultural obligations in their courses.

For course specific information see the Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology Inherent (Essential) Requirements Statement.

Assumed knowledge

HSC Mathematics Extension 1; Physics; and English Standard. English Advanced is recommended.

For the Chemical Process and Civil Engineering major, Chemistry is recommended. For the Software Engineering major, a sound knowledge of the fundamentals of programming is recommended.

Recognition of prior learning

Students who have completed equivalent subjects at a recognised tertiary education institution may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL) if the subjects completed are deemed by the Faculty to be equivalent to subjects in the course. Established agreements for RPL with external tertiary institutions are outlined in the Recognition of prior learning tool.

To be considered for recognition of prior learning, subjects must normally have been completed no more than ten years prior to the commencement of this course. Limits apply to the number of credit points of RPL that can be granted.

Course duration and attendance

The course can be completed in three years of full-time study.

Course structure

Students are required to complete 144 credit points, comprising:

  • core program (including the Project BEngSc): 42 credit points
  • major: 84 credit points, and
  • electives: 18 credit points.

The major is selected at the time of admission; however, it is possible to apply to change major at a later date. Students admitted to the flexible major should decide by the end of the first year of full-time study whether to transfer to a designated major or continue with the flexible program.
