Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Mechanical) with Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences
Campus North Terrace Campus
Degree Type Double Degree
Duration 5 years fulltime or parttime equiv.
SATAC Code 314931
CRICOS 082109G
In this program, students study the concepts of mechanical engineering with a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses. Mechanical engineering is concerned with the management of people and resources, the creation and use of new technologies and the design and development of new processes and products.
With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the degree, the program can typically be completed in five years (fulltime), 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 mechanical engineering component of the degree, see Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical). For further information about the mathematical and computer sciences component of the degree, see Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences.

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 fulltime (or parttime 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.
