Trimester 1 and Trimester 2
This double degree is focused on the future, combining a cutting-edge blend of computer science and engineering. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) gives you the opportunity to make your mark on major global systems and infrastructure or be at the leading-edge of local urban projects. You'll be involved in hands-on projects from year one, planning and creating clever solutions to real challenges.
Your engineering skills are complemented with the future-proofed skills of computer science. You'll gain a broad knowledge of the subject learning the principles and concepts behind computer science problem-solving. For example, using modelling methods and processes to understand core problems and designing solutions that match.
From year one, you'll learn from industry experts and like-minded teachers. Hands-on experience is key to this double degree, and in your final year you can enhance your employment opportunities through an industry-based project or placement.
The future is promising for dual computer science and engineering professionals. With these complementary degrees, you'll be prepared for engineering roles across varied industries that require design, innovation and creative development applied with the latest technology.
Changes effective for students commencing from Trimester 2 2020 onwards:
Tailor your timetable - Even if you study full-time on-campus, you may still be able to customise your degree to suit your needs. From a range of tutorial times to online access to lectures and other course material, we're here to help you fit study in with your work and life commitments.
Students may be eligible to do an international field trip, organised by the academic staff. This may count towards a component of the degree, depending on its structure.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science is offered full-time and part-time on-campus.
The University's Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination or Testing policy is under review and consultation and will be suspended from 14/4/2022, for four weeks. Please visit Studying amid COVID-19 for more information.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
Engineering (Honours): An integrated program of exposure to industry practice will be built into the program. Practising engineers will be directly involved in the learning and teaching process, particularly through involvement with laboratory and tutorial sessions. Staff will draw upon their industry/professional experience in choosing their laboratory activities, their projects and/or case studies and problems. Field trips will enhance awareness of the current industry/professional practice. The final year Professional Practice course provides a WIL experience, integrating technical expertise with the practical issues of professional/industry practice. A co requisite of this course is the completion of a minimum of 12 weeks (60 days) of approved experience in an engineering practice environment (or a satisfactory alternative).
The pinnacle of our work-integrated learning experience is the 30 credit point Industry Affiliates program (IAP) wherein students will undertake a trimester-long capstone project. Students are encouraged to conduct their IAP-Thesis project in industry and our IAP office will assist in finding placements for students who might have been unable to find their own placement. Total work placement (hours): 408.
Computer Science: Students must complete at least 20 credit points of Work Integrated Learning in their fourth year. The Work Integrated Learning course is taken through the Industry Affiliates Program (IAP). The IAP has been designed to integrate students into the workplace through the completion of an industry based software development project. It is designed to benefit both the student as well as the industry partner. The IAP requires both an industry professional supervisor and an academic supervisor. The maximum workplace attendance requirement will be 3.5 days a week (20 hours) over 12 weeks (that is, 240 hours).
The inclusion of work-integrated learning in this degree demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
