Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Electrical and Electronic) with Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences

Degree Type Double Degree

Duration 5 years full-time or part-time equiv.

SATAC Code 314911

CRICOS 082099E

This double degree program combines the disciplines of electrical and electronic engineering and mathematical and computer sciences, allowing students to study towards two degrees simultaneously.

In this program, students study the concepts of electrical and electronic engineering with a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses.

Electrical and electronic engineers provide the power society needs; they design electronic and computing technologies that enable modern lives; they develop the communications networks and protocols that connect people; and they work to sustain human developments through
medical technology and new energy technologies.

With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the degree, the program can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately. At the end of the double degree, students will graduate with two separate parchments; one for each degree.

Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.

For further information about the electrical and electronic engineering component of the degree, see Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic). For further information about the mathematical and computer sciences component of the degree, see Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences.

    Selection Criteria
    Year 12 Applicants You must not have completed more than 2 years full time equivalent university study (48 units). You compete for a place with your Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR).
    Prerequisites SACE Stage 2: Mathematical Methods (if studied in 2017. If studied year 12 prior to 2017, the equivalent subject was called Mathematical Studies), Physics plus one of Specialist Mathematics or Chemistry.

    IB: either Mathematics (HL grade 3) and Physics (SL grade 4/HL grade 3); or, Chemistry (SL grade 4/HL grade 3), Physics (SL grade 4/HL grade 3) & Mathematics (SL grade 4/HL grade 3)


    Alternative entry pathways
    • Higher Education applicants
      You must have completed at least half a year full time equivalent higher education study. A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for each separate program you have undertaken (apart from some double degree programs where the GPA is combined). You compete on the basis of your best GPA.
    • VET applicants
      You must have completed an AQF Certificate IV or above from a Registered Training Organisation. Your application will be ranked according to the level of the award.
    • Special Entry applicants
      You must be 18 years or over before 1 February 2018. If you have studied at higher education level in the last two years (for 2018 entry this means you were enrolled in either 2017 or 2016), you must not have accumulated more than a TOTAL of 2 years full-time (or part-time equivalent) higher education study (ie. including any study prior to 2016). If you meet this criteria, you will be ranked according to your result in the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT). Your STAT result is not weighted between verbal and quantitative components. Indigenous applicants may be eligible for entry through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access Scheme. See Wirltu Yarlu for further information.
