Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of electrical and electronic engineering with physics. The program provides a strong background in mathematics and physics as well as practical experience in the design and operation of electrical, electronic and software systems. Students complete the standard four years of engineering courses minus 3 units, together with an extra 27 units of Physics courses.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) with Bachelor of Science is an AQF Level 8 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.
