Description

This program provides an opportunity to combine studies in many areas of science with a specialisation in one of the following branches of engineering: chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical and computer systems engineering, materials engineering and mechanical engineering.

Objectives

This course enables students to complement studies in one of five branches of engineering by selecting units from the very wide range of disciplines offered by the Faculty of Science.

Vacation work/industrial experience

In order to fulfil the requirements of the various degree regulations and Engineers Australia, all engineering students must complete 12 weeks of approved engineering work experience and submit a report on that work. Such work is normally undertaken in the vacations between second and third years and/or between third and fourth years (but may also be taken between first and second years). Students who have completed all academic requirements for their degrees are not eligible to graduate until this work experience has been completed and a satisfactory report submitted.

Professional recognition

Structure

The first two semesters of the course are largely common to all branches of engineering studies, with all students studying mathematics, some engineering units and either chemistry or physics. Normally students must identify which branch of engineering they plan to study at the commencement of level one, but those who are unsure of which branch to pursue are advised to consider enrolling in CHM1011, MTH1030 (or MTH1020) and PHS1011 (or PHS1080) and either ENG1060 or an engineering unit in a branch of interest in their first semester, and to consult the academic adviser prior to second semester for further unit selection.

The large majority of students entering the faculty have completed the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), and references in the following paragraphs are to the prerequisite VCE subjects. Some domestic and international students enter the faculty with equivalent qualifications, and advice about unit choice for students with qualifications other than the VCE may be obtained from the faculty administration offices. Selected units are specified for students who have not completed appropriate VCE studies.

Core studies

Students must complete major and minor sequences towards the science component of this double-degree. Students in all engineering branches may pursue a science major sequence in:

  • astrophysics
  • mathematics
  • physics
  • computer science

There are additional science sequences offered in some streams, including:

  • physiology (leading to biomedical engineering in the electrical and computer systems engineering and mechanical engineering branches, and biomaterials engineering in the materials engineering branch)
  • geosciences, atmospheric science, biology/ecology and materials science in the civil engineering branch.
  • atmospheric science, biochemistry, geosciences, chemistry, materials science, chemistry and life sciences in the materials engineering branch.

In order to pursue a particular sequence, students must take the necessary science prerequisites in their first level of study. For details of major and minor sequences in science disciplines refer to the 'Science areas of studies and sequences - Clayton' in the Faculty of Science section of this handbook at http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/undergrad/sci-aos-clayton.html.

Students should contact the appropriate science or engineering course adviser before enrolling in any level of the double degree program, to ensure that the program they wish to follow will satisfy prerequisites necessary for higher levels. In some special cases, students may choose to overload at levels two or three if they have not completed all of the prerequisites for their chosen science major sequences.

In this double degree course structure, restrictions have been imposed in terms of prescribed units to ensure that students pursue studies that suitably equip them for the subsequent levels in science and engineering.

The award of an honours degree in engineering is based on academic achievement.

Requirements

Students must complete 240 points of units as listed for each sequence below.

The choice of either MTH1020 and MTH1030 or MTH1030 and MTH2010 at level one is determined by the level of preparation from VCE studies, and students who have not completed year 12 physics should take PHS1080 rather than PHS1011.

Depending on the engineering stream, students in the double-degree must complete two major sequences in different science disciplines, or a double major and a minor sequence in a different science discipline, or a major and three minor sequences.

Chemical engineering

The engineering component requires not less than 132 points that must be obtained in units prescribed by this course list, and the science component requires no less than 108 points, including at least 24 points of level three science units.

In some cases, students may elect to seek approval for an overloaded course of up to 12 points at level two or three to enable these requirements to be completed in addition to the required science units at level two.

Progression to further studies

Students may apply for admission to an honours level in science, following the completion of an approved combination of at least 144 points of units including all of the normal science requirements for that branch of the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering, with at least 96 points of science units and no more than 48 points of level one science units. Students who are considering doing honours in science prior to completing the double-degree should consult with the Faculty of Science regarding their unit selection prior to re-enrolling for level three.

Alternative exit(s)

Students may graduate with a Bachelor of Science, following the completion of an approved combination of at least 144 points of units including all of the normal science requirements for that branch of the Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Engineering, with at least 96 points of science units and no more than 48 points of level one science units.

Students may exit from the double-degree program and graduate with the single engineering component providing all requirements for the engineering degree have been met.
