The University of Adelaide

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) / Bachelor of Arts

The University of Adelaide

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

In this combined degree program, students study the concepts of electrical and electronic engineering, and undertake an arts major of their choice. Electrical and electronic engineers provide the power society needs; they design electronic and computing technologies that enable modern lives; they develop the communications networks and protocols that connect people; and they work to sustain human developments through medical technology and new energy technologies. With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the combined degree program, the degree can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately. Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects.


Students are required to complete 6 weeks of work experience as part of the engineering academic program.

Further information

A combined degree is an approved combination of two degrees, which includes components from both programs and satisfies the minimum of one of those degree programs but not both individual degrees (unlike a double degree). At the end of the combined degree, students will graduate with one parchment.
