Special Notes

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


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 students will complete a common first year before branching out into their majors. The mathematical and computer sciences program includes a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical)/ Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences 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.


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.

    • Defence Systems
    • Mechanical Engineering
    • Mechatronics and Robotics
    • Medical Technologies
    • Renewable Energy
    • Smart Technologies
    • Sports Engineering
  2. Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences courses to the value of 24 units as specified to provide a double degree with a major in either:
    • Computer Sciences, or
    • Mathematical Sciences
  3. A total of 8 weeks of approved engineering work placement is required. Students will need to enrol into the ENG 3100 Engineering Internship UG (0 units) course to complete this requirement.
  4. Unless exempted, International students are required to take ENG 1011 Introduction to Engineering EAL in lieu of ENG 1001 Introduction to Engineering
  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. The satisfactory completion of Mathematics IM is in addition to the normal requirements of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
  6. Satisfactory completion of the SET Hands-On Training courses is required.
