Entry requirements

Admission to this program requires: * A 4-year Bachelor of Engineering degree in a relevant discipline of engineering with a minimum 65% average. Those without a recognised four year Bachelor degree in a relevant discipline of engineering with a minimum 65% average may submit a detailed statement outlining how their prior learning may be considered equivalent to this qualification. For example, a 3- or 4-year Bachelor of Engineering or Science combined with relevant discipline experience (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant to be decided by each specialisation) may be recognised. A student may apply for advanced standing.

    1. 2021 Lowest Selection Rank
      The 2021 Lowest Selection Rank (LSR) is the adjusted rank (ATAR plus adjustment factors) you would have needed to gain entry to this degree in 2021.
    2. 2021 A levels
      The 2021 A levels score is based on four Advanced Level (A2) subject. Entry scores are calculated from the best three or four A2 subjects (excluding repeated subjects) using the following values: A*=6, A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1. At most one Applied A Level subject may be included in the best four subjects used to calculate the aggregate.
    3. 2021 IB Diploma
      The 2021 IB Diploma is an indication of the IB you would have needed to gain entry to this degree in 2021. It is to be used as a guide only.
    4. 2021 Lowest ATAR
      The 2021 Lowest ATAR is the lowest ATAR (before adjustment factors were applied) to which an offer was made. Where <5 is listed, this indicates that less than 5 ATAR-based offers were made and so the score has not been published. N/A indicates no offers were made on the basis of ATAR.

Credit transfer

A student may apply for credit towards the program. For example, a student with a 4-year engineering honours degree could obtain a maximum of 24UOC of advanced standing. Applications for credit should be addressed to the Stream Authority (see relevant school site for further details).
