K03 Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems) Bachelor of Computer Science

There is a growing demand in high-technology industries and research centres, especially in the areas of information technology and telecommunications, for engineers with knowledge and professional skills in project management, software development and relevant areas of engineering.  While specialising in the engineering discipline areas of electronic systems, computer systems and communication systems, this double degree programs broaden the overall knowledge of students in areas which are complementary to their engineering skills.



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



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 granted Accreditation to this course alongside the associated single degree.


Standard University admission requirements apply.


Satisfactory performance in WACE Mathematics 3C/3D or Mathematics: Specialist 3C/3D, or equivalent.
WACE Physics 3A/3B, or equivalent is desirable.
Students who have completed a TAFE Diploma or its equivalent in an allied engineering field may be admitted to this course with advanced standing.


Note: Students who have not passed WACE Physics 3A/3B or equivalent will be required to complete a bridging unit during the first year of their studies.

Students who have not completed Mathematics: Specialist 3C/3D are strongly encouraged to attend the 5-day Mathematics Bridging Programme offered in the week before the start of each semester.
