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

This program is only available to students who have already commenced their studies. Prospective students should refer to the single Bachelor of Surveying program at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/program/10374.html or the single Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental) program at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/program/10694.html

This combined degree program provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in surveying and environmental engineering and complete two awards. In general, it offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for student to graduate with multidisciplinary skills.


Study a language (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

All students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

Australian Year 12 students:

Apply for entry through UAC.

Entry based on UAI or equivalent.

Non school leavers and previous Australian Year 12 students:

Apply for entry through UAC.

Entry based on:

previous Year 12 studies and/or

Higher education, tertiary or post-secondary qualifications and/or

Overseas qualifications considered equivalent to Australian qualifications.

International Students:

UAI Cut-offs: The minimum UAI for admission to combined degree programs is 90.25 The UAI cutoffs for University programs are provided at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/study/undergraduateadmissions/uaiscores.html


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

Assumed Knowledge for both Environmental Engineering and Surveying:

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. Applicants who have achieved less than Mathematics Band 5 or have not completed a science related subject may be admitted to the program but may need additional study and/or assistance to successfully complete the requirements of the program.


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

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

Honours are embedded in the Bachelor of Surveying/Engineering(Environmental), based on outstanding performance throughout the duration of the program. Honours grades will normally be awarded by Faculty Board on the basis of a graduating student's performance in the program as a whole, as measured by the WAM according to the following schedule: Minimum WAM = Honours 77 = Class I. 72 = Class II Division 1. 67 = Class II Division 2. 50-66 = Pass Degree. A Head of School may recommend to Faculty Board that a grade of Honours be awarded to a student who has achieved a WAM of other than indicated or not be awarded to a particular student. In such a case Faculty Board may either make an award of Honours in accordance with the recommendation of the Head of School or in accordance with the schedule. For further information 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/faculty/engineering/for-students/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 will have difficulty pursuing this program. It is highly advisable for any prospective student with such a disability to contact the Program Convenor to discuss the issue. The Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment accepts responsibility, in liaison with the student Support Unit, for providing reasonable accommodations to allow students with disabilities to complete the program.


Requirements and Structure Back to top

The surveying and environmental engineering combined degree program comprises a minimum of 400 units. This program is available at Callaghan Campus, however students do have the option of undertaking their first year of study at Ourimbah Campus, (with the remaining years to be undertaken at Callaghan Campus). 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 semester or 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 the program or experiencing transition problems are advised to contact the Program Convenor or Student Hub for further information.
