Applicability of the general provisions
11.1.20.1 The general provisions in 11.1.1 apply to the course.

Course structure
11.1.20.2 The combined course for the degrees of Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Engineering consists of units to a total value of 252 to 258 points comprising a Bachelor of Commerce component to the value of 84 or 901 points and a Bachelor of Engineering component to the value of 168 points.

1 See 11.1.20.3(2).

Bachelor of Commerce component
11.1.20.3(1) The Bachelor of Commerce component consists of units to a total value of 84 or 90 points comprising—

(a) both units in Table 4.2.4a (Bachelor of Commerce Level 1 core units) in the UWA Business School Rules—12 points

and

(b) one unit or two units chosen from Group B in Table 4.2.4b (Bachelor of Commerce Level 1 options) in the UWA Business School Rules or from the Level 1 units offered within the University—6 or 12 points

and

(c) Level 2 and 3 units to make up the remaining number of points required for the component chosen from Table 4.2.2u (Level 2 and 3 units offered by the Faculty) in the UWA Business School Rules or from the Level 2 and 3 units available within the University and including the requirements for at least one of the majors set out in UWA Business School Rules 4.2.4.10 to 4.2.4.21A.1

(2) Students may only undertake 90 points where the final six points accommodate a unit required to complete a major towards which they have previously been studying.

1 Units comprising the Management, Human Resource Management or Corporate Finance majors will be timetabled as far as possible to avoid clashes with prescribed engineering units. Students may choose other majors, but no guarantee can be given that all timetable clashes will be avoided.

Bachelor of Engineering component
11.1.20.4 The Bachelor of Engineering component consists of units to a total value of 168 points comprising—

(a) all foundation core units required under Rule 6.2.2A.6(1)(a) in the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics Rules—36 points

and

(b) units to the value of 90 to 144 points which comprise the core units for the chosen Bachelor of Engineering program as prescribed in the respective rules for the relevant program in 6.2 of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics Rules except that—

(i) Electrical and Electronic Engineering students must take all units in Groups A and D except ELEC3307 Engineering Management and Industrial Practice, one unit from Group B, and are exempt from taking the unit in Group C in Table 6.2.2Ea (Electrical and Electronic Engineering core units)—126 points

(ii) Mechanical Engineering students must not complete a major in Oil and Gas Engineering;

(iii) Petroleum Engineering students must not take MECH4400 Engineering for Sustainable Development;

and

(c) other units from the relevant table(s) in the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics Rules as follows:

(i) for the Chemical and Process Engineering program:

A. the requirements for one of the following majors: the Chemical Engineering major (MJ-ECHEM) as set out in Rule 6.2.2B.2 or the Hydrocarbon Processing major (MJ-EHCPR) as set out in Rule 6.2.2B.3—24 points

and

B. options to the value of six points comprising one unit from Group A in Table 6.2.2Bb (Chemical and Process Engineering options);

(ii) for the Civil Engineering program:

units required to make up either—

A. the Civil Engineering major (MJ-ECIVM) as set out in Rule 6.2.2C.2—30 points

or

B. the Offshore Engineering major (MJ-EOFFM) as set out in Rule 6.2.2C.3—30 points

(iii) for the Electrical and Electronic Engineering program:

options to a total value of six points comprising one unit from Group A in Table 6.2.2Eb (Electrical and Electronic Engineering options);

(iv) for the Environmental Engineering program:

A. all units in one of Group A (Environmental Engineering major), Group B (Ocean Systems Engineering major) or Group C (Water Resources Engineering major) in Table 6.2.2Fb (Environmental Engineering; Ocean Systems Engineering; Water Resources Engineering major units)—30 points

and

B. options to a total value of 12 points comprising one unit from Group A and one unit from Group B in Table 6.2.2Fc (Environmental Engineering options);

(v) for the Mechanical Engineering program:

A. both units in Group A or B in Table 6.2.2Hb (Mechanical Engineering project units)—12 points

and

B. options to a total value of 30 points comprising one unit from Group A and four units from Group B in Table 6.2.2Hc (Mechanical Engineering options);

(vi) for the Mechatronics Engineering program:

options to a total value of 24 points comprising one unit from Group A and three units from Group B in Table 6.2.2Ib (Mechatronics Engineering options);

(vii) for the Mining Engineering program:

options to a total value of 18 points comprising three units from Group A in Table 6.2.2Kb (Mining Engineering options);

(viii) for the Petroleum Engineering program:

options to a total value of 12 points comprising two units from Group A in Table 6.2.2Ob (Petroleum Engineering options);

and

(d) practical experience through a professional practicum as set out in Rules 6.2.2A.10 to 6.2.2A.13 in the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics Rules (GENG4010 Professional Practicum1).
