Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Mathematics

University of Newcastle

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00109J

This combined degree program provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in civil engineering and mathematics and complete two awards. A Combined degree program offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills. Civil Engineers are responsible for the physical structures that we take for granted every day - roads, bridges, airports, mines, pipelines, harbours and dockyards are all planned and designed by civil engineers. Graduates have a solid understanding of the scientific fundamentals that underpin civil engineering and engineering practice, and well-developed hands-on skills in the design of infrastructure projects. Combining the study of civil engineering and mathematics creates a broader range of career prospects for graduates who will enjoy a competitive edge in the job market.


The Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Mathematics is a 5 year program comprising 400 units, of which up to 300 units are core courses, 20 units are design core courses, 10 units are project core courses, 60 units are mathematics directed courses and 10 units are elective courses. Students will have the opportunity to undertake an industry related project in their final year and must also complete 12 weeks of industrial experience throughout the program. A graded honours classification in engineering is awarded on the basis of superior performance throughout the program. The Bachelor of Mathematics component of this combined program may be awarded with Distinction on the basis of superior performance throughout the program.

Standard entry requirements

Year 12 or equivalent. Alternative entry pathways may include approved TAFE studies, preparatory programs such as Newstep, Open Foundation or Tertiary Preparation Certificate. Assumed knowledge: HSC Mathematics (Band 5 or above) or equivalent. One science-related subject would also be an advantage (Physics or Chemistry preferred). Applicants who have achieved less than Mathematics Band 5 may be admitted to the program but may need to complete additional study to successfully complete the requirements of the program. Students who have completed HSC Mathematics General 2 may be admitted to the program but can expect to undertake additional studies to successfully complete the requirements of the program.


This degree program is accredited by Engineers Australia and other affiliated international organisations.

Study pathways

Credit transfer agreements with TAFE NSW and other education providers are under continuous negotiation. A Bachelor of Mathematics (Honours) is available as an additional year to meritorious students.
