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) (Surveying)/Bachelor of Business program, students are required to complete 410 units.For the Leadership and Management Major, 350 units are core courses, 30 units are compulsory courses and 30 units are directed courses.  For the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Major, 350 units are core courses, 40 units are compulsory courses and 20 units 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.

Please note that if you undertake courses that are not in your approved program, you will be liable for additional fees for those courses. This is in addition to the HECS fees associated with your normal program of study.

 

Students with a Band 1 or 2 in the NSW HSC course Extension 1 Mathematics OR who have completed NSW HSC Extension 2 Mathematics (or their interstate/international equivalents) are able to complete the higher level MATH1210/MATH1220 Mathematical Discovery 1/Mathematical Discovery 2 course in lieu of MATH1110/MATH1120. Please contact your program advisor if you wish to discuss this option.  

Students may choose to undertake PHYS1210 Advanced Physics 1 in lieu of PHYS1205 with program convenor approval.
