Why choose this program?

For a more specialised career path, this dual degree allows students to complement their engineering knowledge with a range of supporting computer science skills and understanding. The degree provides a broad knowledge of computer science, as well as depth in the underlying principles and concepts of CS problem solving, i.e. how to use modelling methods and processes to understand problems, handle abstraction and design solutions. Students will develop knowledge and practical skills in planning, management, design and build of engineering projects as well as communication, research and critical analysis skills.

In the final year, students' employability is enhanced through industry experience. With an internationally recognised qualification, graduates are prepared for work on large complex systems and projects here and overseas.

Attendance information

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science is offered full-time and part-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

Engineering (Honours): An integrated program of exposure to industry practice will be built into the program. Practising engineers will be directly involved in the learning and teaching process, particularly through involvement with laboratory and tutorial sessions. Staff will draw upon their industry/professional experience in choosing their laboratory activities, their projects and/or case studies and problems. Field trips will enhance awareness of the current industry/professional practice. The final year Professional Practice course provides a WIL experience, integrating technical expertise with the practical issues of professional/industry practice. 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).

The pinnacle of our work-integrated learning experience is the 30 credit point Industry Affiliates program (IAP) wherein students will undertake a trimester-long capstone project. Students are encouraged to conduct their IAP-Thesis project in industry and our IAP office will assist in finding placements for students who might have been unable to find their own placement.

Computer Science: Students must complete at least 20 credit points of Work Integrated Learning in their fourth year. The Work Integrated Learning course is taken through the Industry Affiliates Program (IAP). The IAP has been designed to integrate students into the workplace through the completion of an industry based software development project. It is designed to benefit both the student as well as the industry partner. The IAP requires both an industry professional supervisor and an academic supervisor. The maximum workplace attendance requirement will be 3.5 days a week (20 hours) over 12 weeks (that is, 240 hours).

The inclusion of work-integrated learning in this degree demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.

My career opportunities

Graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science will be engineers who possess the technical skills for design, innovation, and creative development in their chosen engineering discipline.

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). A student's actual annual fee may vary in accordance with his or her choice of majors and electives. The Australian Government sets student contribution amounts on an annual basis.
