Engineering and Arts - E3002

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.
