CRICOS: 00102E

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Scholar) program is designed to provide an enriched educational experience and to encourage high achievers to continue on to further studies and research. The common first year allows students to explore and consider the various engineering disciplines before selecting a major area of study. After completion of the first-year subjects, students can transfer into their chosen field of engineering.


4 years full-time or part-time equivalent. Total of 192 credit points. This consists of 48 credit points of common core subjects and at least one major and elective subjects to bring the total of 192 credit points. All UOW Engineering students undertake 12 weeks of practical hands-on industry experience prior to the conclusion of their academic studies.

Standard entry requirements

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12 The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 95 or an IB of 37. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. Find out more about UOW adjustment factors here: ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English, Mathematics Advanced (not Mathematics Standard 2). Ideally, students will have studied Engineering Studies, Mathematics Extension 1, Physics, and Chemistry (Chemistry not necessary for biomedical, computer, electrical, mechatronic or telecommunications engineering). INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.


UOW engineering programs are accredited by Engineers Australia and relevant world engineering bodies through the Washington Accord. This ensures recognition by equivalent professional engineering bodies in the USA, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and other countries. This recognition ensures that graduates from this course are admitted, on application, to the grade of Graduate Membership of Engineers Australia.
