Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Engineering Pathway
Your way into a top engineering degree
Do you have a selection rank of 70 or above? Did you complete Mathematical Methods* or equivalent?
At the University of Adelaide, we want to make sure everyone with a passion for engineering can pursue it. If you have not completed the prerequisites to directly enter one of our engineering degrees, you can still study with us in a supportive environment.
What will you do?
Our new Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) – Engineering Pathway is designed for students with a foundation in maths and a passion for engineering. You will:
- fulfil any prerequisite requirements
- study core Bachelor of Engineering subjects in your chosen engineering discipline
- prepare to enter the engineering program of your choice.
Our staff will support you in choosing the right topics within the pathway option to make sure you transition successfully.
Where could it take you?
With guaranteed transfer into your chosen engineering degree following successful completion of the pathway program, you’ll be ready to pursue what matters most to you at South Australia’s highest ranked university for engineering**.
*For students who have not completed Mathematical Methods or equivalent, please see our MathTrack X option.
**Academic Ranking of World Universities 2020
