University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Science

University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00099F

This combined degree is designed to provide opportunities for students interested in science, the scientific basis of engineering and technology, and the technology itself. Graduates of this course work as cutting edge professionals where science and engineering interact dynamically. 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. Students have the option of undertaking honours in science, or an additional two internships to gain the Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice, or both. 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 246 credit points, made up of 168 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and 78 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Science. The engineering component of this course is made up of subjects selected from the engineering core, engineering fields of practice (majors) and professional engineering practice. The science component represents a specific science major. Graduation from the science component of the combined degree is not possible prior to completion of all components of the combined degree. Students wishing to graduate with a Bachelor of Science prior to completion of the engineering component of the combined degree must apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Science single degree program where they must complete all requirements for the stand-alone single degree version.
