Special Notes

This program will no longer be open for enrolments to commencing students from Semester 2, 2022.

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

Overview

This program will prepare students to be Engineers for the 21st century - to develop sustainable solutions to some of the planet's most challenging problems resulting from climate change and population growth. Students in the program will develop solutions to real-world problems based on industry needs. These include ways to adapt to climate change and create resilient societies, to enable the renewable energy transition, to secure our water and food supplies, to protect society from pollution and natural hazards and to redesign products to reduce waste. In the arts program, students are able to specialise in areas of their choice by taking a ‘major’ (from one of 25 majors) and potentially a ‘minor’ (from a range of areas).
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental & Climate Solutions) and Bachelor of Arts is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia

Conditions

Condition of enrolment
Interruption of program: Students must apply for permission from the Executive Dean or delegate before taking a Leave of Absence. Any extension of the leave without approval will result in the loss of place in the program but an application may be made to be re-admitted to the program subject to the admission procedures in place at the time.
