Major Overview

Description

Note: this major is only available to re-enrolling students.

Engineering is the creative application of science and mathematics to design solutions for global challenges. From building the world's largest structures to its smallest electronic devices, from moving people across the globe to sustaining their local environment, engineering affects every aspect of our lives. Successful completion of this major prepares you for further study in the Master of Professional Engineering, leading to professional accreditation as an engineer. Students who choose to become an engineer work with others to understand social needs and create solutions that are delivered on time, safely and within budget.

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) apply the natural and physical sciences applicable to the broad engineering discipline; (2) apply the mathematical, numerical, statistical and computational sciences that underpin the broad engineering discipline; (3) explain the ethical, social, environmental, and financial accountabilities, opportunities and constraints of contemporary engineering practice; (4) demonstrate effective team membership and team leadership; (5) communicate effectively in oral and written formats in professional and lay domains; and (6) demonstrate a strong grounding in discipline-specific sciences and design principles including their practical implementation.

Broadening guidelines

All students studying towards a Bachelor's Degree at UWA are required to Broaden their studies by completing a minimum of four units (24 points) of study outside their degree specific major. Broadening is your opportunity to explore other areas of interest, investigate new disciplines and knowledge paradigms and to shape your degree to suit your own aspirations and interests. Many of you will be able to undertake more than this minimum amount of broadening study and we encourage you to do so if this suits your aspirations. Over the next few months you will find here some broadening suggestions related to your degree-specific major. While we know that many students value guidance of this sort, these are only suggestions and students should not lose sight of the opportunity to explore that is afforded by your Broadening Choices. Advice can also be sought from your Allocated Student Advising Office.

Prerequisites

Mathematics Specialist ATAR, Mathematics Methods ATAR, Chemistry ATAR and Physics ATAR OR Mathematics Methods ATAR with additional specified bridging units taken in the first year depending on the number of missing prerequisites.
