Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
UOW double degrees aim to broaden a student's knowledge and skill base and improve career options in competitive, increasingly interactive fields. The UOW Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Bachelor of Mathematics combines professional engineering skills, including management, communications, teamwork and problem solving, with a major study in mathematics. 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. This program is designed to enhance a student's educational, academic and professional qualifications. Engineers are needed to support communities by designing and building liveable sustainable cities, they create transport and housing systems, they design and build telecommunications network, 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.
5.5 years full-time or part-time equivalent. 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.
UOW 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.
If applicants can demonstrate they have met the learning outcomes for UOW subjects through prior learning, such as previous tertiary or TAFE qualifications, they may be eligible for credit towards their degree. Where relevant to the UOW degree, specified credit may be given for specific subject(s); where not relevant to the degree, unspecified credit may be awarded.
