Program Code


Academic Year


Special Notes

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


This program will provide students with skills and knowledge in the planning, design, construction and operation of engineered systems for a diverse range of constructions. This program combines civil and structural engineering, mechanical engineering and the creative design aspects from architecture.  The first two years of the program build a scientific, architectural design and engineering foundation for the more specialist architectural engineering courses.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Architectural and Structural) is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 year. 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.

Academic Program Rules for Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Architectural and Structural)

There shall be a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Architectural and Structural).

Qualification Requirements
Academic Program: 

To qualify for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Architectural and Structural), the student must complete satisfactorily a program of study consisting of the following requirements with a combined total of not less than 96 units, comprising:

  1. Core courses up to the value of 93 units.
  2. Electives courses to the value of 3 units.
  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 for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
Core Courses

To satisfy the requirements for Core Courses students must complete courses to the value of 93 units.
