Expected time to complete
5 years full-time or equivalent part-time
Maximum time to complete
Maximum leave of absence
Course progression requisites
Must successfully complete all level 1 and level 2 subjects before attempting any level 3 subject
Where there is overlap between the core subjects for the course and for the chosen major, candidates are required to contact the Faculty office to add substitute subjects to their study plans.
It is strongly recommended that in this situation candidates take extra engineering subjects as listed under the corresponding major in the Bachelor of Engineering single degree.
Course includes mandatory professional placement(s)
Special assessment requirements
The engineering thesis topic must be specific to the candidate’s chosen engineering major.
Maximum allowed Pass Conceded (PC) grade
Supplementary exam for final subject
Candidates may apply for advanced standing for previous tertiary study in accordance with the Advanced Standing for Previous Studies and Recognised Prior Learning policy associated procedures.
63 credit points
Advanced standing will be granted only for studies completed in the 10 years prior to the commencement of this course.
Advanced standing gained for any subject shall be cancelled 20 years after the date of the examination upon which the advanced standing is based if, by then, the candidate has not completed this course.
A minimum of 18 credit points (including 6 credit points of fourth year thesis) should be completed at James Cook University for each of levels 3 and 4.
If the candidate requests advanced standing approaching the maximum level, then the advanced standing should be predominantly from the first two levels of the Bachelor of Engineering program.
Inclusion of majors on testamur
The major studied shall appear on the testamur.
Exit with lesser award
Engineering honours is available within this course.
The award of Honours (I, IIA, IIB) or Pass degrees in Engineering will be determined by the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences after a candidate has completed the Credit Point requirements for their degree, by:
