With a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), you will learn how to apply mathematics and
science to find creative solutions to complex problems and bring exciting innovations to life. Combine this degree with a number of complementary programs to further enhance your skills – allowing you to complete two degrees in a five-year study program.
With two separate degrees, you will be able to pursue careers in either area.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Business: Complement your robust technical engineering skills with business acumen and entrepreneurism. Learn how to manage people, projects and finances, propose new business opportunities and market your product.

You will be well positioned to bring technical insights into a business context or take a leadership role in engineering.

You can combine the Bachelor of Business with an engineering specialisation in chemical, civil, electrical and electronic or mechanical.

The engineering component of this program is offered from the Newcastle (Callaghan)
campus. The business component of this degree is offered from the Newcastle City campus.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science: Pair creativity with technology to develop both hardware and software for electronic and microprocessor-based systems. Your studies will open opportunities to work in fields including artificial
intelligence, robotics, computer graphics, digital forensics, bioinformatics, web development and data security. The Bachelor of Computer Science is combined with a Bachelor of Computer Systems Engineering (Honours).

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours): Combine two different fields of engineering to broaden your expertise and open a wider range of career opportunities:

  • Bachelor of Aerospace Systems Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Aerospace Systems Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours) Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Environmental Engineering (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Surveying (Honours)Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Systems Engineering (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours).

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Mathematics: Mathematics is fundamental to many breakthroughs in engineering. Expand your knowledge in maths-based areas like data mining, mathematical modelling, statistics and predictive analysis and discover how these skills can be used across various engineering fields.

You can combine the Bachelor of Mathematics with: Chemical Engineering (Honours), Civil Engineering (Honours), Computer Systems Engineering (Honours), Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours), Mechanical Engineering (Honours) or Mechatronics Engineering (Honours).

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Science: Combined with engineering, a
Bachelor of Science can open up a diverse range of employment opportunities in both private industry and government organisations. You could pursue a career in areas like nanotechnology, telecommunications, fibre optics, laser technology, medical physics, organic electronics or photovoltaics. Note: Not all science majors can be studied with the engineering program.

You can combine the Bachelor of Science with: Chemical Engineering (Honours), Computer Systems Engineering (Honours), Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours), Environmental Engineering (Honours) or Mechanical Engineering (Honours).

To ensure that students meet the core disciplinary content for both degrees, the structure of these combined degree programs is prescribed. Usually, combined degrees can be completed in five years of full-time study, however for some combinations, timetable restrictions may mean programs take longer to complete.

Students wishing to complete two degrees that are not listed as combined may do so by making use of the university’s concurrent enrolment process. Once a student has demonstrated sound progress in their first degree, a second degree may be commenced. A student electing concurrent enrolment will require additional study time over and above the normal five years of an engineering combined degree program.

Areas of study

Refer to the relevant single degrees – not all majors offered within 482200 Bachelor of Business, 483200 Bachelor of Mathematics and 484020 Bachelor of Science are available within a combined degree.

Elective pathways: All University of Newcastle Engineering (Honours) programs facilitate the study of a wide range of elective pathways to customise our students' learning experience. These can deepen or broaden the knowledge base of the core program, depending on the student's desires and interests.

Career opportunities

Refer to the relevant single degrees.

Professional recognition

Combined Engineering (Honours) degree programs offered by the University of Newcastle are fully accredited by Engineers Australia and qualifies you as a professional engineer. Graduates have greater opportunities for international mobility.

Practical experience

All University of Newcastle engineering students complete 12 weeks of industrial experience during their degree. Through your work placement, you’ll build important professional networks and put your learning into practice.


All graduates will be awarded Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), with graded honours awarded based on merit.

Fees and charges

Refer to University of Newcastle current fee information.

Admission criteria

Applicants with recent secondary education

Assumed knowledge: Mathematics Advanced (Band 5 or above). Applicants who achieve less than Band 5 may need additional study or assistance to successfully complete the mathematics requirement of the program.

Recommended studies: Mathematics Extension 1 or higher, any 2 units of science.

Also refer to single degree information.

If you have not previously studied one or more of these subjects or your knowledge is limited, we encourage you to undertake bridging courses. NUPrep Bridging offers academic preparation and support short courses, which are free and can be completed on campus or online before you start your degree.

Applicants with higher education study

If you completed or partially completed higher education studies, your grade point average can be converted to a selection rank for admission purposes.

Applicants with vocational education and training (VET) study

If you completed or partially completed competency-based vocational education and training (such as TAFE, a private Registered Training Provider, or vocational studies undertaken in high school), this can be used to determine your eligibility for admission.

Studies completed at an AQF Level 4 (Cert IV) or higher provide Guaranteed Entry into many of our undergraduate programs.

Applicants with work and life experience

If you do not have an ATAR (or equivalent) or formal qualification, Newcastle University offers a range of pathways toward your dream degree. No matter what your age or experience, there is a place for you.

ATAR profile

ATAR-based offers only (semester 1, 2023)

Use all ATAR profile data as a guide only; it provides a broad overview of the ATARs and selection ranks of previous Year 12 students admitted into that course. ATARs and selection ranks required for entry in 2023 may be different. If you are unsure about including a course among your preferences, contact the relevant institution.

  1. This ATAR profile table is in line with Commonwealth Government transparency requirements. It is based on offers to recent school leavers (ie completed Year 12 in the last 2 years) who were selected solely or partly on their ATAR. Note that some institutions further differentiate this information on their websites.
  2. The ATAR values exclude any adjustment factors.
  3. The selection ranks include the ATAR and any adjustment factors.


– = data is not available.
<5 = less than 5 ATAR-based offers were made.
N/A = no offers were made on the basis of ATAR.
NC = new course
NP = Not provided by institution
NR = No reportable profile
NS = No Semester 1 offers
NN = Unavailable (other)
