This course combines core technology-based engineering skills with those from the humanities and social sciences. You can take any Engineering specialised stream as a component of a combined degree, provided your ATAR is above or equal to the lowest selection rank for the specific Engineering specialisation. You will undertake one major from 513200 Bachelor of Arts Table A and may take a minor or electives from Table S and units from the Open Learning Environment.

You may apply to change your chosen Engineering stream after enrolment. Any change should be made as early as possible in the program to limit the need for catch-up work and to ensure satisfactory completion of the requirements for the new stream.
