Monday 12 October 2020
- Re-enrolment opens for the following year
- Select your specialisation via WES at this time.
Which specialisation can I choose for my course?
All specialisations are available with the BE(Hons) single degree.
The following combinations are available for the double degrees. Doubles with Architectural Design, Design and Pharmaceutical Science are only available in one specialisation. If you are enrolled in one of these three courses, you do not need to undertake the specialisation selection.

Entry requirements for engineering specialisations
Some specialisations require students to meet specific academic criteria:
Most specialisations require you to have passed ENG1005 and the relevant specialisation design unit/s (ENG1001, ENG1002, ENG1003) to undertake their level 2 units as these units are prerequisites for level 2 units eg ENG1001 is a prerequisites for many level 2 civil engineering units. Check the specialisation course map for information on the prerequisites for level 2 units.
Students who have not completed all unit requirements in engineering at level 1 may not be allocated into their selected specialisation until completion of relevant first year engineering units e.g. single degree <36 credit points, double degree <30 credit points. In this case, students should seek course advice undertake specialisation selection at the end of the next semester.
