The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Flexible Entry is designed for students who know they want to be an engineer, but aren't yet sure which discipline they'd like to specialise in. This one-year option introduces and explores a variety of engineering disciplines in a flexible first 12 months of study, without adding additional time to the student's eventual engineering degree. It includes six common foundation courses, and two electives in an engineering stream of interest. Upon their completion, students can transfer seamlessly into their engineering degree of choice at the end of the academic year. Streams are available in the engineering disciplines of: mechanical; electrical and electronic; environmental; civil; mining; architectural; chemical; petroleum; pharmaceutical; and software engineering. Students must transfer into a named Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) single, double or combined degree at the completion of the academic year.


This 24-unit program comprises 18 units of common foundation courses and 6 units of stream electives in an engineering discipline of interest. Students select their stream electives according to their preferred discipline of specialisation. Unique to this program is an exclusive foundation course - Introduction to Engineering - introducing students to the broad range of engineering disciplines as well as the social context and cultural issues associated with the practise of engineering.
