Engineering and Arts - E3002

Engineering and Arts

Bachelor degree (honours)/Bachelor degree

The engineering/arts double degree offers diversity, flexibility and more career choices.

The common first year provides the scientific and design foundations for engineering, focuses on real life problems so you begin to understand the interaction between engineering and society, and introduces the range of engineering disciplines available to you. You then pursue your specialist engineering discipline from year two.

Add to this, Arts at Monash, which provides your comprehensive gateway to around forty fascinating areas of study across the arts, humanities and social sciences and you will have a portfolio uniquely tailored to meet your interests and aspirations.

This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation, you will be awarded one of:

  • the Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Environmental Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Materials Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours), or
  • the Bachelor of Software Engineering (Honours),


and also

  • the Bachelor of Arts.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Arts) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either or both in combination.

Combining an engineering degree with an arts degree provides complementary skills in technology and communications.  You will develop the transferable skills employers are looking for: communication, teamwork, research and critical thinking. You will have the flexibility to create a course  that's tailored to your academic interests while exploring different career options. Possible areas include communications, safety, regulation, and policy analysis and development.

This course requires students to complete a total of 420 hours of continuous professional development, in order to graduate. This professional development may be in the form of 12 weeks of relevant vacation employment or an equivalent combination of approved professional development and/or engineering employment, taken throughout the duration of the course. Students are required to submit a series of reflections on their experience, with particular reference to development of each of the key Engineers Australia Stage 1 competencies.

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is a specialist course that develops through four themes that combine to underpin engineering practice: Fundamentals and foundational skills, Design, Knowledge and applications, and Professional Practice.

A. Engineering fundamentals and foundational skills

These will develop your understanding of natural and physical sciences, mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences that underpin all engineering disciplines.

B. Engineering design

This will develop the engineering techniques, tools and resources for the conduct, design and management of engineering design processes and projects, both in the industrial setting and in the development of research experiments.

C. Engineering knowledge and application

This will provide in-depth knowledge of the specific engineering methods of a branch of engineering, and will integrate the specific engineering methods and discipline knowledge into practice. You will develop skills to identify and apply knowledge of contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline. Additionally, your studies will focus on your understanding and application of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in your discipline.

D. Professional practice

This will develop your skills in readiness for the engineering workplace. You will develop skills in effective team membership and team leadership, the use and management of commercially relevant data, and the legal responsibilities of engineers. This study will integrate the theme 'Engineering knowledge and application' with your specialist field of engineering.

The Bachelor of Arts is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete:

A. Arts specified study

This will expose you to several Arts disciplines areas of study contributing breadth to your knowledge of the arts, humanities and social sciences. It will also give you the opportunity to learn about several areas of study before finalising your choice of major and minor.

B. Arts listed major

This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your practical and theoretical skills and knowledge in one Faculty of Arts listed major area of study. You will learn to critically analyse, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of the area of study.

Making the application

Future students

Semester one (February)

Applications for on campus studies should be made online through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre.

Current Monash students

You may apply to transfer from another Monash course. Transfers are a competitive process. You may apply mid-year for available courses however consideration will be given as to whether you will be able to follow your course progression.

Please note that if you apply for a course transfer, you should still enrol in your current course as if you were continuing so as not to jeopardise your enrolment in the Faculty if your transfer application is unsuccessful. More about Course Transfer...
