This course is an Engineering Technologist-level program which is similar in nature to the Bachelor of Engineering but does not provide full professional engineering status. It provides students with the skills required at an engineering technologist level and the ability to work with professional engineers without developing full professional engineering competencies.


A total of 144 credit points is required for graduation, distributed in the following way: core program (including the Project BEngSc): 42 credit points fields of practice (including a major BEngSc project): 84 credit points, and electives: 18 credit points. The degree may be taken with a designated major which students usually select at entry. Opportunities exist in later years for students to apply to change majors. Students may choose not to take a major, instead taking a general program comprising subjects from different areas of engineering as approved by the director of UTS: Engineering Undergraduate Programs.
