Why study with us?

Computer Engineering and Science at the University of Newcastle

Engineering (Computer) and ScienceStudying the combined Bachelor of Engineering (Computer)/Bachelor of Science degree will qualify you with two degrees after just five years of full-time study.

Computer engineering and physics are closely linked specialisations. When you study a computer engineering and science degree at the University of Newcastle you will develop a strong foundation in both fields, along with a deeper understanding of physical phenomena in areas such as quantum mechanics, semiconductor physics, optics and electromagnetism. 

The Bachelor of Engineering (Computer)/Bachelor of Science degree offers a diverse learning environment combining practical laboratory exercises, traditional lectures and industry-based work placement.

As a graduate of the computer engineering and science degree, you will have the necessary academic and professional skills suitable for a career in computer engineering. The additional study of physics offers you a better theoretical preparation for developing, understanding and using new electronic devices likely to be created in future years.

For more information about the course structure, assumed knowledge and work placement requirements, please visit our handbook page.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Computer)/Bachelor of Science is accredited by Engineers Australia and many other affiliated international organisations. You will be eligible to apply for membership of these organisations upon graduation.
