Overview

This course is a technology degree which allows students to develop broad based engineering skills similar in nature to the Bachelor of Engineering Science (C10066) degree but without full engineering technologist status.

The 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.

It is intended for students who require a broad overview of STEM knowledge via the "Flexible Engineering" or "Engineering and Technology Studies" majors; and to specialise in a field of technology, for example, students with prior vocational qualifications may choose the Advanced Manufacturing major to learn the latest industry 4.0 manufacturing technologies, without meeting the requirement for Engineering Australia professional accreditation.

Career options

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

Course intended learning outcomes

A.1 Historically and Culturally Informed about Indigenous Knowledge Systems: FEIT graduates are culturally and historically informed, able to work as respectful professionals with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
B.1 Socially Responsible: Bachelor of Engineering Studies 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 Design Oriented: Bachelor of Engineering Studies graduates apply design techniques and appropriate methodologies to develop engineered systems and components to meet stakeholder requirements.
D.1 Technically Proficient: Bachelor of Engineering Studies 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 Studies graduates work as effective team members, communicating effectively, and operating within diverse contexts.
F.1 Reflective: Bachelor of Engineering Studies 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 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.

Assumed knowledge

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

Recognition of prior learning

Students who have previously undertaken relevant study 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. Study completed more than 10 years prior to the date of admission cannot be recognised. Limits apply to the number of credit points of RPL granted.

Course duration and attendance

This course is offered on a three-year, full-time or six-year, part-time basis.

Course structure

Students are required to complete 144 credit points, comprising:

  • core program: 36 credit points
  • major: 84 credit points, and
  • electives: 24 credit points

Students admitted to Advanced Manufacturing major must select the choiceblock Core subjects (Advanced Manufacturing). Students in the Flexible Engineering major and Engineering and Technology Studies major must select the choiceblock Core subjects.

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