If you are passionate about a particular subject, an Honours program will enable you to explore this area of study in greater depth, as well as build your research experience and further develop the skills from your undergraduate studies.
In most programs, Honours is an additional year of study (a fourth year) at undergraduate level, and includes some coursework units and a research thesis or project.
In certain four-year degrees, such as Engineering, dependent on the student's total weighted course average and the final year project mark, students may be automatically awarded an Honours degree.
An Honours year normally consists of:
Honours will give you the first big chance to 'stretch your legs' on your very own research project. Participating in research while you’re studying your Bachelor degree is an excellent opportunity to find out what's involved in Higher Degree by Research (HDR), such as Masters by Research or a doctoral qualification (PhD), and whether it suits your aspirations and career ambitions.
An Honours degree will:
Postgraduate coursework programs (e.g. Graduate Diploma and Master by Coursework courses) are valuable for professional development, career change and career development.
Entry to most postgraduate coursework programs usually require a undergraduate degree and/or industry experience.
Honours programs provide high calibre undergraduate students with an opportunity to develop and extend their research skills.

Includes a range of studies in Civil Engineering combined with a special focus on the impacts that engineering projects have on the environment.
Civil engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the human-made environment, including buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, dams and other large physical structures.
Computer systems engineering is the synergistic combination of electronic engineering and computer science.
While specialising in the engineering discipline areas of electronic systems, computer systems and communication systems, this double degree broadens the overall knowledge of students in areas which are complementary to their engineering skills.
Electrical power engineering is a well-established engineering discipline encompassing electrical power generation, transmission and distribution, power electronics, electromechanical systems, and renewable energy.
This course combines the fundamental engineering disciplines of electronic systems and communication systems to provide graduates with skills in all aspects of analogue and digital circuit design, and communications systems development.
Instrumentation control and automation engineering is the integration of electrical, electronic and computing engineering, with control engineering for the development of intelligent control systems to automate monitoring, processing, and production.
Mechanical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, manufacture and maintenance of mechanical components and moving systems.
This double degree program combines the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) Honours course with the Bachelor of Technology (Motorsports) course.
This double degree program provides students with the opportunity to become qualified engineers with a strong background in a complementary branch of applied science.
