These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (https://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies).
Overview
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) with 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.
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.
