Attendance information

This program is offered full-time on-campus.

Student Income Support

From 2017, 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.

Work-integrated learning

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).

My career opportunities

You will find employment in civil construction projects, consulting engineering firms, specialist high technology companies, government authorities, manufacturing, mining, oil, corporate IT, research.

Program accreditation

In Australia, professional accreditation of entry to practice engineering programs is the responsibility of Engineers Australia and is normally carried out on a five-yearly cycle. Griffith University underwent this review in August 2015.

Accreditation ensures academic institutions consistently meet national and international benchmarks and engineering graduates of an accredited program are assured membership with Engineers Australia at the relevant career grade and enjoy reciprocal privileges by equivalent professional bodies overseas.

Countries such as the United States of America, United Kingdom, Hong Kong (SAR), New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and others that are co-signatories to international agreements on joint recognition offer international recognition.

The Washington Accord, the Sydney Accord and the Dublin Accord recognise the substantial equivalence of accreditation systems and accredited programs across international boundaries at the Professional Engineer, Engineering Technologist and Engineering Associate levels respectively. Please refer to theInternational Engineering Alliance (IEA) website for more details.

Please see the Engineers Australia website for the most recent list of accredited programs.

Pathways to further study

Students completing the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree may be eligible to proceed to Higher Degree Research (HDR) study.

Commonwealth supported students

  • The fee is indicative of an annual full-time load (80 credit points) in a program categorized to one of the Australian Government's three broad discipline areas (student contribution bands).
