Special Notes

These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (


Through this combined degree program students can combine the concepts of electrical and electronic engineering with arts. The electrical and electronic program embraces both electrical and electronic engineering and provides graduates with a wide range of fundamental scientific knowledge relevant to electrical and electronic engineering. In the arts program, students are able to specialise in areas of their choice by taking a ‘major’ (from one of 25 areas) and potentially a ‘minor’ (from a range of areas).
In addition to the academic program of study, students must complete a total of 12 weeks of full-time practical experience. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) / Bachelor of Arts is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.
