Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) (BE(Hons)(Elec&Elec))

Program Code


Academic Year


Special Notes

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


This program embraces both electrical and electronic engineering and provides graduates with a wide range of fundamental scientific knowledge relevant to electrical and electronic engineering. An emphasis is placed on underlying principles and techniques so that graduates will be able to learn and apply new technologies as they emerge in the future. The first two years of this degree provide a solid foundation in electronics, physics, mathematics and computer programming. This background means that graduates have the opportunity to work in many specialist areas and are prepared with lifelong learning skills so that they are able to change specialisations over the course of their careers. All Engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their disciplines, majors. Students can choose a major in Communication Systems, Computer Engineering, Cybersecurity, Defence Systems, Medical Technologies, Smart Technologies and Renewable Energy, as well as a choice of minors in Humanitarian and Entrepreneurship. Beginning in the second year of the degree, the focus shifts towards learning new and more advanced electrical and electronics technologies. In the final year of the program, students can specialise in a particular area by studying advanced courses and by completing a capstone project that further develop research, technical and professional skills.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 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.
