What is changing?

The new Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) program will offer these options:

The course lists have also changed – some courses are no longer offered, and new courses have been developed.

What has been discontinued?

  • Mining Engineering and Mining and Geotechnical Engineering majors have been discontinued – unless you declared one of these majors by 31 August 2020, you will not be permitted to undertake these majors if you remain in the pre-2021 program structure. Students currently enrolled in Mining Engineering and Mining and Geotechnical Engineering will be able to complete their program.
  • ENGG1200 was last offered in Sem 2, 2020 and has been discontinued – What is the replacement course for ENGG1200?
  • ENGG1700 replaces ENGG1400 – some dynamics content is moving to MATH1052. *If you commenced prior to 2021 and are intending to study Mechanical or Mechatronics and have NOT completed ENGG1400, please seek advice from your academic advisor.

I want to change to the new program

In some instances, pre-2021 students may choose to change to the new program structure. To do this, you will be required to submit a program change request via mySI-net during the program change request window. You are strongly advised to complete the transition checklist and seek academic advice before requesting a program change. Once a program change is approved, you will not be permitted to return to the discontinued structure.

If you choose to change, you will be required to follow the 2021 program structure and program requirements. Please note that in some instances, there are no existing substitutions for new compulsory courses in the new program.

This may mean that you will be required to complete additional courses above the minimum program requirements. In addition, due to the progressive rollout of some new course offerings, this may also result in a potential delay to your graduation.

It is very important that existing students seek academic advice before requesting to change into the new program.
