BB-CSECMP v.1 Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems Engineering), Bachelor of Science (Computer Science)
BEng(Curtin) OR BEng(Hons)(Curtin), BSc(Curtin)
Course CRICOS Code: 043754B
Registered full-time Duration: 5 Years
Bachelor Double Degrees prepare students to develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills in more than one discipline for professional work and further learning corresponding to AQF level 7 qualifications.
This double degree provides graduates with a background in computer science and its application in computer systems, electrical and electronic and communication engineering. The combination of the two degrees provides graduates with versatility, which opens up a wide range of employment opportunities. On completion of the program, students are awarded both the Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems Engineering) and Bachelor of Science (Computer Science).
The Bachelor of Engineering meets the academic requirements of Engineers Australia for Graduate Membership. Graduates receive level one accreditation from the Australian Computing Society.
The combination of the two degrees provide graduates with versatility, which opens up a wide range of employment opportunities.
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
Course Entry and Completion Details
Applicants for a Bachelor Double Degree are required to meet University academic and English language entry standards; details are provided at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au and include flexible entry pathways. Any specific course entry and completion requirements must also be met.
Applicants require an ATAR ≥80; Mathematics Methods ATAR; and at least one of the following: Physics ATAR; Chemistry ATAR; Engineering Studies ATAR. Desirable: Mathematics Specialist ATAR. STAT is not accepted for mature age entry but may be used to demonstrate English Competence requirements.
Credit for Recognised Learning
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au.
Pathway to Further Study
Graduates with a Bachelor Degree may qualify for entry to some Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Master by Coursework degrees. Graduates with a Bachelor Degree with Honours may also qualify for entry to a Master or Doctorate by Research. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Specific Course Completion Details
To satisfy professional requirements, students must complete 12 weeks of approved work experience associated with the engineering industry. Students may make their own arrangements for employment or seek assistance from the University's Prospective Students Services. Students are expected to gain a Senior First Aid Certificate prior to graduation.
Course Entry/Completion Note
In certain cases, the need to undertake an additional program of preparatory studies may result in an extension of studies beyond the normal length of the course.
Bachelor Double Degrees include a combined degree study program leading to two awards. The duration of the double degree may vary among disciplines, but typically requires less time to complete than if the two undergraduate degrees were studied separately.
Students enrolled in the double degree program may elect to transfer to a single degree course in one of the two disciplines. In this event, the relevant Head of Department shall determine the amount of credit to be transferred to the single degree. The structure of Engineering, Science and Computing owned double degrees is such that students have the option of completing the component Engineering, Science or Computing degree in the minimum time, provided they elect to change from the double degree within the first two semesters of the course.
Duration and Availability
5 years' full-time study or part-time equivalent.
