Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Commerce

University of Wollongong

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00102E

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Bachelor of Commerce provides an opportunity for students who have a flair for business, finance, management, marketing etc to combine their interest with professional engineering studies. Engineering is vital to solving the world's big challenges: supporting communities by designing and building liveable sustainable cities; creating transport and housing systems; and designing and building telecommunications networks, the internet and computers. Engineers design systems to ensure ample clean water for the world's population, to find non-polluting energy sources, to create ways to assist healthy living and ageing and to advance medical and health technologies. Engineers are team players and many become CEOs and entrepreneurs; engineering graduates run over 30 percent of the world's biggest international companies, nearly double the next largest discipline. Students learn the fundamentals of engineering, both the technical and interpersonal skills, and apply this knowledge in real situations to prepare them for engineering the future with an internationally accredited UOW engineering degree.

Structure

5.5 years full-time or part-time equivalent. Students study a common first year allowing them to learn more about engineering and its different fields before deciding which discipline to study. The common first year provides students with sound fundamentals in mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, computing, engineering science and communication, mechanics, materials and fluids. Students then focus on a chosen major study from the second year. All UOW Engineering students undertake 12 weeks of practical hands-on industry experience prior to the conclusion of their academic studies.

Standard entry requirements

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12 The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 80 or an IB of 29. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.

Recognition

UOW's engineering programs are accredited by Engineers Australia and relevant world engineering bodies through the Washington Accord. This ensures recognition by equivalent professional engineering bodies in the USA, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and other countries. This recognition ensures that graduates from this course are admitted, on application, to the grade of Graduate Membership of Engineers Australia.
