Special Notes

These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies).

Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of mechanical and aerospace engineering with mathematical and computer sciences. In the mechanical and aerospace program students will be exposed to problems specific to the aerospace industry such as how a vehicle moves, how high and how fast it can travel, how it holds together under the forces it experiences and how it is kept on course. Students analyse and solve these problems using their knowledge of mechanics and dynamics, materials and joining methods, thermodynamics, heat transfer, vibrations, guidance, control and modelling techniques. The mathematical and computer sciences program includes a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses.
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) (Mechanical and Aerospace) / Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.

Qualification Requirements
Academic Program: 

To qualify for the double degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical and Aerospace) / Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences, the student must complete satisfactorily a program of study consisting of the following requirements with a combined total of not less than 120 units, comprising:

  1. Courses to the value of 96 units from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical and Aerospace), including Core courses up to the value of 93 units and Elective courses to the value of 3 units
  2. Courses to the value of 24 units from the Bachelor of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, including a Computer Science or Mathematics major
  3. A total of 12 weeks practical experience approved by the Faculty and of which a minimum 6 weeks should be under the supervision of a professional engineer
  4. Unless exempted, international students are required to take ENG 3003 Engineering Communication EAL in lieu of either a core or elective course as advised by the Faculty
  5. Students who have not undertaken SACE Stage 2 Specialist Mathematics (or equivalent) will be required to enrol in Mathematics IM, followed by Mathematics IA with Mathematics IB taken in Summer Semester to complete the Mathematics requirements at Level I.
