Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of mining engineering with science. The mining program focuses on analysis and design and combines knowledge from geotechnical, environmental, structural and water engineering, geology, computing, mathematics and finance. In addition to their engineering studies, students will be able to undertake studies in a major area of science. Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mining) / Bachelor of Science is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.

Academic Program Rules for Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mining) / Bachelor of Science

There shall be a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mining) / Bachelor of Science.
