ENGG454Professional Experience0Annual, Autumn, Spring
Students must complete ONE of the following two subjects:
ENGG452Thesis A12Annual, Spring 2017/Autumn 2018
ENGG453Thesis B*18Annual, Spring 2017/Autumn 2018
Plus, for students in ENGG452: ONE elective from List A of the Mining or Environmental Engineering elective subjects.

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

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

Credit Arrangements

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

Professional Recognition/Accreditation

UOW's engineering programs are accredited by Engineers Australia and relevant world engineering bodies through the Washington Accord. This ensures recognition by equivalent professional engineering bodies in the USA, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and other countries. 

UOW is a member of the Group of Eight (Go8) Deans of Engineering and Associates, in recognition of its being among the top Australian engineering faculties. This achievement is a direct result of our world class reputation in teaching and research.
