E66 Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems)

The Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems) course prepares highly skilled hardware and software specialists. Employment opportunities include the development and design of computer networks, complex real-time systems, high performance processors, multimedia systems and artificial intelligence.



Bachelor of Engineering courses are four year awards available by full-time or part-time study on Joondalup campus.



Students whose performance over the four years of the course is of a high standard may be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree.



Overseas students may be admitted to the Engineering course subject to the University’s fee scale.


The language of instruction is English and all students are expected to be proficient in both spoken and written English.


All assessment will be conducted in the English language.



In addition to meeting standard admission requirements, applicants must have completed Applicable Mathematics or Calculus at Year 12 level. Students who have completed an Associate Diploma or its equivalent in an allied engineering field may be admitted to the Bachelor of Engineering with advanced standing.



During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).



Engineers Australia has formally granted Full Accreditation to Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems, Communication Systems, Electronic Systems). Parallel accreditation status has been granted for the Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Science double degree courses.



The course consists of 480 credit points (thirty core units,  two electives and a practicum unit).
