Program duration

5 years part-time up to 12 years maximum.

Program requirements

For all combined programs and in accordance with the Combined Degree Principles and Structures Guideline [000992], the core and minimum requirements for each single degree component must be met in each combined program. Consideration is given to overlapping courses and/or content where applicable, but to also ensure that accreditation is not compromised.

In the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Surveying) program, students are required to complete 400 units, 380 units of which are core courses and 20 units of which are directed courses.

The program has a duration of 5 years full time (or part time equivalent).It is possible for a student to 'step out' with a single degree award only and not complete the combined program they are enrolled in. In order to accomplish this, a student would be required to complete the single degree requirements for their preferred degree and may be required to complete any omitted courses. A student wishing to 'step out' with a single degree should contact their program convenor or program advisor for further information.

This program can be completed in five years. However, a student's choice of directed courses may lead to timetabling issues that may extend the duration of their program. Students are advised to consult with their program convenor regarding their academic program.


Program structure

Students are advised to read their program handbook information in conjunction with the program plans for course sequence/enrolment advice. Please refer to the Program Plan for the year that you commenced, or transitioned into, this program - Program Plans are available above.

Special needs

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

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.
