Bachelor of Engineering Science

Course code K94

Provides a high-quality and broad-based coverage of multi-disciplinary engineering.

In the modern engineering environment, large-scale engineering projects are increasingly likely to be of a highly multi-disciplinary nature, requiring engineers from diverse backgrounds to be able to work effectively as a team to deliver the outcomes. In such environments, a broader understanding of engineering, beyond one specific area of specialisation, is highly desirable and advantageous.

Developing such breadth in four-year engineering courses is a challenge as it compromises the level of specialist knowledge that is also required from a graduate engineer. Successful completion of this three-year program guarantees entry into ECU's Master of Engineering course, affording the opportunity to develop a chosen discipline specialisation building on this strong multi-disciplinary knowledge base.

Applicants from South West WA will be able to study only the first year (up to eight foundation units) of this degree at ECU's Bunbury Campus, which may include attending a short set of lab sessions at Joondalup Campus by the end of each semester. After completing these eight units, Bunbury students will need to attend ECU's Joondalup Campus to complete the rest of their course. This option is only available for domestic students living in the South West region of WA.

Course Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply systematic engineering synthesis and design processes to conduct and manage engineering projects, with some intellectual independence.
  2. Demonstrate a global outlook and knowledge of contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline, including respect for cultural diversity and indigenous cultural competence.
  3. Demonstrate advanced knowledge of theories, principles and technical applications in engineering.
  4. Demonstrate clear and coherent oral and written communication in professional and lay domains.
  5. Demonstrate conceptual understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline and fluently apply engineering techniques, tools and resources.
  6. Demonstrate effective team membership and team leadership to implement engineering projects according to relevant standards of ethical conduct, sustainable practice and professional accountability.
  7. Demonstrate responsibility for own learning, professional judgement and an understanding of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of the engineering profession.
  8. Think critically, and apply technical and research skills to analyse and provide solutions to engineering problems.
