Course CRICOS Code: 072467B
Registered full-time Duration: 4 Years
Bachelor honours degrees prepare students to develop broad, coherent and advanced knowledge and skills in a discipline for professional work, research and further learning corresponding to AQF level 8 qualifications.
Students undertake the Bachelor of Engineering Pre-Major in their first year and on successful completion proceed in their second year to one of the following Engineering disciplines: Chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Electronic and Communication Engineering, Electrical Power Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering, Civil and Construction Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Mining Engineering or Environmental Engineering. Environmental Engineering major will only be available at Curtin Sarawak. Students are not required to choose a discipline at the start of the degree but must make this decision either prior to or at the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering Pre-Major.
The Bachelor of Engineering has been accorded full recognition by Engineers Australia exempting graduates from all academic requirements for corporate membership. To qualify for corporate membership of Engineers Australia a graduate also requires a minimum of four years approved experience following the award of the Bachelor of Engineering degree.
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
Course Entry and Completion Details

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 may qualify for entry to Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas, Master by Coursework and Research degrees and Doctorates. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Specific Course Completion Details
To satisfy requirements, students must complete at least 12 weeks or equivalent of exposure to professional practice. This requirement can be met by appropriate work experience. Students must demonstrate that they have met these requirements by using a formal log book to record their professional experiences during the period of their degree study.

Bachelor degrees with honours typically contain a series of units which may include compulsory (core), optional or elective units to cater for student preferences. They may contain a range of majors/streams for students to choose from to pursue learning in a specialised area of study. They comprise honours-level research within the coursework of the course and are at least four years in duration.
