Engineering and Information Technology - E3011

Engineering and Information Technology

Bachelor degree (honours)/Bachelor degree

In an age of increasing technological advancements the synergy between engineering and information technology will only become stronger. IT underpins engineering practice in all disciplines and industry needs graduates with skills and expertise spanning both.

In this double degree course you will acquire creative and problem solving skills to use IT in engineering applications. This could be anything from designing a stunning visualization of engineering data, to building an app for data collection to setting up the business IT processes to deliver an engineering product via the internet.

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.

Engineering

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.

Part 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.

Part 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.

Part 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.

Part 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 your specialist field of engineering.

Information Technology

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

Part A: Information technology specified study

This will provide you with foundation skills and knowledge for your IT education and ensure a breadth of understanding of IT and its applications in organizations and society.

Part B: Information technology listed major

Only available with the Computer networks and security major for this double degree.
