The Degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) – BE(Hons)

The regulations for this degree are to be read in conjunction with all other relevant statutes and regulations including the Academic Statutes and Regulations.

Duration and Total Points Value

1 A student enrolled for this degree must follow a programme of the equivalent of eight full-time semesters and pass courses with a total value of 480 points, unless credit is granted under the Admission Regulations and/or the Credit Regulations.

Structure and Content

2 A student must pass 480 points from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Schedule including:

a 120 points: Part I as listed in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Schedule including 15 points from courses offered in either the General Education Open Schedule or the General Education Faculty Schedule approved for this degree, and the Academic Integrity course as specified in the Enrolment and Programme Regulations, Academic Integrity, of the University Calendar

and

b 360 points from Parts II, III and IV for one of the areas of specialisation listed in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Schedule.

3 a A student will not normally be permitted to enrol for Part II unless Part I has been completed, or to enrol for Part III unless Part II has been completed, or to enrol for Part IV unless Part III has been completed.

b However, a student who has failed to pass one of those Parts in its entirety may be allowed, at the discretion of Senate or its representative, to enrol for the course or courses needed to complete that Part together with a course or courses towards the next Part.

c Only in exceptional circumstances will a student be permitted to enrol for Part III unless Part I has been completed, or to enrol for Part IV unless Part II has been completed.

4 A student who is required to meet the Academic English Language Requirement, as specified in the Enrolment and Programme Regulations, Academic English Language Requirement, of the University Calendar, may substitute an academic English language course approved by Senate or its representative for 15 points of General Education.

General Education Exemptions

5 A student is exempted from the requirement to pass courses offered in the General Education Schedules who has:

either

a completed an undergraduate degree at a tertiary institution

or

b commenced study for this degree at a tertiary institution before 1 January 2006

or

c been admitted to this degree having completed 120 points or more of degree-level study at another tertiary institution

or

d been admitted to this degree with credit from another tertiary institution for the entire Part I of this degree.

6 A student who has been exempted from the requirement to pass courses offered in the General Education Schedules must substitute 15 points from courses offered at this University.

7 A student who has been fully or partially exempted from the requirement to pass courses offered in the General Education Schedules is nonetheless required to complete the Academic Integrity course.

Conjoint Degrees

8 Special arrangements apply where this degree is taken as a component degree of an approved conjoint combination. The specific requirements and a complete list of the conjoint degrees available are set out in the Conjoint Degrees section of the University Calendar.

Practical Requirements

9 a A student enrolled for this degree must carry out satisfactorily such practical work in ENGGEN 299 and ENGGEN 499, field trips and laboratory requirements, as prescribed by the Faculty of Engineering.

b A student will not be considered to have completed the requirements for this degree unless Academic Services has received from the Dean of Faculty of Engineering confirmation that the student has complied with the requirements of Regulation 9a.

English Language Requirements

10 a A student enrolled for this degree must demonstrate competence in the English language, in ENGGEN 199, as prescribed by the Faculty of Engineering.

b A student will not be considered to have completed the requirements for this degree unless Academic Services has received from the Dean of Faculty of Engineering confirmation that the student has complied with the requirements of Regulation 10a.

Honours

11 The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) may be awarded with First Class Honours or with Second Class Honours in either First Division or Second Division. The class of honours shall be determined by the student’s weighted average grade over Parts II, III and IV. Students who have passed all courses and completed all other requirements for a BE(Hons) but whose performance in the courses is deemed by the Dean of Engineering to be not of Honours standard will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Engineering.

Variations

12 In exceptional circumstances Senate or its representative may approve a personal programme which does not conform to these regulations.

Commencement

13 These regulations came into force on 1 January 2008. The 2000 regulations for the Degree of Bachelor of Engineering were thereby repealed.
