Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This combined degree is the same as the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Medical Science, except for the additional requirement of two internships and completion of the professional engineering practice program. Students can transfer to this program if they wish to complete the Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice. There is a strong interrelation between the progress of engineering and developments in science, and a demonstrated need for professionals with a strong understanding and experience in both areas. A strong professional focus ensures graduates of this course learn the skills employers want with a solid link between theory and practice, and the benefits of hands-on experience. This combined degree can be completed in less time than would be required to complete the two degrees separately.
The program comprises a total of 288 credit points, made up of 210 credit points from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice and 78 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Medical Science. The engineering component of this course is made up of subjects selected from the engineering core, the professional engineering practice program and the engineering fields of practice (majors). The medical science component represents a specific medical science strand. Graduation from the medical science component of the combined degree is not possible prior to completion of all components of the combined degree.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is professionally accredited by Engineers Australia. Under the Washington Accord the degree is internationally recognised by the following countries: Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong China, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States. The Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice allows students to accelerate their entry into the engineering profession as a chartered professional engineer by reducing the time required for professional experience after graduation.
Students who have previously undertaken study at a university or other recognised tertiary education institution may be eligible for some academic credit recognition for their prior study if the subjects previously completed are deemed by the faculty to be equivalent to subjects in the course. The prior study must have been completed before commencement of this course, but no earlier than 10 years before commencement. Students must be able to demonstrate that their knowledge is current. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice may be awarded with first or second class honours, which does not require an additional honours year. An honours program in medical science is available, which involves an extra year of full-time study. The honours program is designed to introduce students to more advanced coursework and to research work in medical sciences.
|Mid year intake
This course produces graduates with professional qualifications in medical science and engineering who are well prepared to pursue a career in either field or one that combines the skills of both.
