Students have a pathway to enhance their professional opportunities through developing cross-disciplinary skills and knowledge within a five year program


Students are required to complete 240 UOC, comprising 168 UOC from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Materials Science and Engineering plus 96 UOC for the Bachelor of Engineering Science.
