Engineering and Advanced Engineering - E6003

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is also now available in a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Masters vertical double pathway. This is an accelerated program for high-achieving students to be on track to earn, in just 5 years, both a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and an expert master’s degree in Advanced Engineering.

You will have an outstanding practical and theoretical preparation for a career in engineering, with a rich selection of specialist electives and strong links to industry. The expert master’s degree will extend your knowledge and provide you with advanced leadership and complex problem solving skills.

An Honours Weighted Average of 70% must be attained by the end of level 3, to use two Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) electives in 4th year to take units from your chosen master’s. You will graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) as a fully qualified engineer after 4 years, and will be able to cross credit the master’s units towards your destination master’s course.

Successful completion of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) with a minimum 70% average will enable direct entry to the Master of Advanced Engineering with only one year (36 credit points) of study to complete.

The Masters Accelerated Pathway option is available for the following specialisations: Aerospace, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Computer Systems, Materials, Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering.

Engineers have forged some of the greatest developments in modern society. Clean water, advances in medical equipment and the increased quality of food supplies are all a result of engineering. Engineers improve life for everyone on our planet.

Your degree will kick off with the common first year which introduces you to engineering and its disciplines, informing your choice of future studies and career.

Monash Engineering is known for its integration of practical and theoretical learning. The Work Ready Program or competitive entry programs like the Monash Engineering Leadership Program, or Monash Industry Team Initiative (MITI) can give you the chance to meet engineers in industry, be job ready  and start building your professional networks.

We also boast a diverse student community, strong industry links and a range of exciting scholarship opportunities.

On graduation, you will be highly sought-after across many industries, known for your creative thinking, problem solving and ability to excel in team-based environments.
