Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Environmental) with Bachelor of Science New

Degree Type Double Degree
Duration 5 years full-time
or part-time equiv.
SATAC Code 334201
CRICOS 097236M

Why combine Environmental Engineering with Science?  

Environmental engineers work to combat the negative impacts of human activity on the environment. They reduce waste, promote eco-design and strive to improve our environmental systems.

This degree enables an additional, specialised science focus which compliments the core engineering foundations.

What will you do?

  • Build technical skills for tackling problems around water, energy, food, pollution, waste, and natural hazards.
  • Discover the connections between infrastructure, environment, society, and economy in the developed and developing world.
  • Develop knowledge and skills in a science major matched to your interests and career goals.
  • Complete an eight-week practical engineering experience.
  • Apply your learning to real-world projects based on industry needs.

This is a 5-year double, not combined degree. You’ll graduate with two separate parchments, a greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.

    • Higher Education applicants
      You must have completed at least six months full time equivalent higher education study (the number of courses and units will vary depending on your prior institution however at the University of Adelaide, this equates to 4 courses / 12 units). 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 2019. If you have studied at higher education level in the last two years (for 2018 entry this means you were enrolled in either 2018 or 2017), 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 2017). 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.
