Description (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

This program will be discontinued at the end of 2014, with a new Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemistry)/Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Major program commencing from Semester 1, 2015.

Existing students continuing to study with the University of Newcastle in 2015, will automatically be transferred into the new program.

All existing students affected by this change, will be advised prior to enrolment for 2015.

Prospective students looking to commence in 2015, please view the handbook entry for our new program: Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Chemistry)/Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Major.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical)/Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Major combined degree program is offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment and the Faculty of Science and Information Technology.

This program provides students with the opportunity to undertake concurrent study in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry and complete two awards. In general, a combined degree program offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with muiltidisciplinary skills.


Admission Requirements (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

Admission to this program is available to Australian students and residents. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/what-can-i-study/undergraduate-programs/how-to-get-in/ for information on how to gain entry.

You may also be eligible to receive bonus points if you will be receiving an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). Please visit

http://www.newcastle.edu.au/what-can-i-study/undergraduate-programs/how-to-get-in/domestic-students/options-for-entry/bonus-points.html to see if you may be eligible.

Please Note: This program is not available to International Students.


Assumed Knowledge (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

There are no prerequisite courses but it is assumed that students will have studied Mathematics (Band 5) or HSC Mathematics Extension 1 (Band E1 or above) or equivalent. Study of one science-related subject would also be an advantage.


Credit Transfer (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

If you wish to apply for credit for studies completed at another institution or if you are changing programs within the University and wish to transfer your credit to a new program go to http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/credit-transfer/ and click on How to apply for credit.


Honours (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

The B Engineering component of this combined program uses the WAM as a measure for determining honours in accordance with the Embedded Honours Models Structures Policy - 000743). Refer to the relevant Bachelor of Engineering handbook.

A Bachelor (Honours) may also be available for the other combined component of this program, to meritorious students as an extra year of full-time or equivalent part-time study.

For further information on Honours please contact the Program Convenor or Student Hub.


Practical Experience (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

Students have the opportunity to undertake an industry-related project in their final year of study and must also complete 12 weeks of industrial experience throughout the program. Further information is available at: http://www.newcastle.edu.au/about-uon/governance-and-leadership/faculties-and-schools/faculty-of-engineering-and-built-environment/student-resources/industrial-experience


Professional Accreditation (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

This program is accredited by Engineers Australia, and other affiliated international organisations.


International Students (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

Not available to international students.


Special Needs (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

Students who have impaired function in their hands or arms, or a visual impairment may experience difficulty in pursuing this program. It is highly advisable for any prospective student to contact the Program Convenor to discuss the issue.

Students with disabilities who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester commences. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and Faculty staff will work together to ensure adjustments are provided in a timely manner.

NB: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the program and courses they undertake. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.


Additional Information (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

All students can access additional learning development mechanisms provided by the Centre for Teaching and Learning at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/unit/ctl/lsp/.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can draw on the assistance and support provided by the Indigenous Student Support and Development service through the Wollotuka Institute.


Requirements and Structure Back to top

The Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical)/Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Major combined degree program comprises courses with a total value of 400 units and is available at Callaghan Campus. To meet the current requirements of this combined degree program, students must complete the program as set out.

Students complete twelve weeks of industrial engineering experience throughout the program and also have the opportunity to undertake an industry related engineering project in their final year of study.

Note that it may not be possible to complete the combined degree program within five years if selection of electives involves timetable clashes, or where elective courses are not offered in a particular year. Students enrolled in a combined degree program are advised to consult the Program Convenor or Student Hub for further information in relation to their academic program.

Please Note: Special Prerequisites apply to MATH1110 - view the course handbook for information


Transition Arrangements Back to top

As programs are regularly reviewed and updated, some students may experience changes to their program of study during the course of their enrolment, which may require transition arrangements.

Students affected by changes to their program are advised to review any documentation contained in the "Further Information" section (located towards the top of this Handbook page), in the first instance. Any further questions should be directed to the Program Convenor or Student Hub.
