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 engineering with mathematical and computer sciences. The mechanical engineering program has a strong focus on design with a design and build project in second year followed by a more advanced project in third year and a large design / research project in the final year. This program provides a core understanding of mechanical disciplines and problem solving skills. All Mechanical Engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their majors. Studies in Science may be chosen from biological sciences, chemistry, geology, physics and mathematics. Through the science program, students learn a number of transferable skills including analytical methods, laboratory and field techniques, information technology skills, teamwork, initiative and the ability to communicate and cooperate with people from a range of backgrounds and expertise.
 
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical)/ Bachelor of Science 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.
