Overview
Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of chemical engineering with mathematical and computer sciences. The chemical engineering program will provide students with a background in the physical sciences, chemical engineering core disciplines, integrated design skills and research training. All Engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their disciplines, majors and/or a choice of thematic minors. The mathematical and computer sciences program includes a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical)/ Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard fulltime duration of 5 years.
This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia and the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) (UK).
Program Learning Outcomes
 Contribute to the design of creative, sustainable, economic and safe solutions, which satisfy the objectives of clients and stakeholders.
 Demonstrate a broad, theorybased understanding of the mathematical, natural and physical sciences underpinning engineering practice, and evaluate the differences between theoretical and applied system behaviour.
 Demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the computer and information sciences that underpin engineering practice.
 Demonstrate a substantial and contemporary bodyofknowledge of engineering methods, tools and processes for a specific discipline, complemented by relevant knowledge from related disciplines.
 Professionally and ethically conduct themselves and their work, respecting the communities and cultural norms within which that work is carried out.
 Communicate objectively and effectively, in written and oral forms, to lay and expert audiences.
 Apply critical and independent thinking to make sound judgements, based on evidence, theory and logical reasoning.
 Maintain and develop knowledge of advancements in engineering practice and research in the specific discipline, and apply this knowledge innovatively when devising solutions.
 Be an effective, emotionally and culturally intelligent team member, with leadership potential.
 Apply a systems approach to managing and developing solutions to complex problems.
 Demonstrate deep knowledge of the mathematical and computer sciences.

 Apply written and oral communication skills and teamwork skills.
 Demonstrate awareness of professional practice.
Conditions
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 readmitted to the program subject to the admission procedures in place at the time.
Program Maximum Duration: As specified in Table 1 of the Coursework Academic Programs Policy, this program must be completed within a Maximum Duration which includes any periods of nonenrolment, leave of absence or approved study at other institutions for credit towards a Program.
Academic Program Rules for Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) with Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences
There shall be a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical) with Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences.
Qualification Requirements
To qualify for the double degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical)/ Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Science, the student must complete satisfactorily a program of study consisting of the following requirements with a combined total of not less than 120 units, comprising:
 Courses to the value of 96 units from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemical), Core courses up to the value of at least 72 units and Elective courses of at least 3 units, with the option of a major in:
 Minerals Processing
 Pharmaceutical Engineering
 Food and Beverage Engineering
 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
