Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) students must complete ONE of the following two research options:
ENGG452Thesis A12Annual, Spring 2017/Autumn 2018
ENGG453Thesis B18Annual, Spring 2017/Autumn 2018
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Scholar) students must complete ENGG453
ENGG453Thesis B18Annual, Spring 2017/Autumn 2018

Please note that this double major in Mechanical and Mining  Engineering requires students to complete more credit points (cp), that the 240 cp for a standard engineering double major - it will require 246 cp, when students complete ENGG453. Any questions should be directed towards the Academic Program Director.

* 18 credit point thesis is equivalent to the 12 credit point thesis and one 6 credit point elective.

Credit Arrangements

Refer to UOW's credit arrangements for information on how to apply for credit.

Professional Recognition/Accreditation
