Specialisation Requirements for Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics)

This page describes the rules concerning the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) and associated combined degrees. This is a new degree starting in 2011. 

 

Table of Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) core units of study

 

All candidates for the Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) degree (including those enrolled in a combined degree) must satisfy the requirements described in the table of core units of study.

Candidates will also need to choose a number of recommended units of study for Bioelectronics Engineering, which consist of:

  • all level 3, 4 and 5 ELEC units which do not appear in the table of core units;
  • the units of study listed in the table of additional recommended units of study; and
  • such other units of study as may be so designated by the Head of School.

Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics)

Candidates for the 4-year Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) degree are required to complete a total of not less than 192 credit points including at least 168 credit points made up of units from the table of core units and recommended units of study. The additional 24 credit points may consist, in whole or in part, of free elective units of study approved by the Head of School.

Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) in a combined degree course

Candidates in the combined degree course of Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) with the Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of Laws are required to complete at least 144 credit points made up of units from the table of core units and recommended units of study.

Candidates in the combined degree course of Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) with the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts are required to complete at least 156 credit points made up of units from the table of core units and recommended units of study.

Candidates in the combined degree course of Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) with the Bachelor of Medical Science are required to complete at least 156 credit points made up of units from the table of core units and recommended units of study, but may choose to replace up to 12 credit points of recommended units with CHEM1101 Chemistry 1A and BIOL1001 Concepts in Biology.

Candidates in all combined degree courses shall also satisfy such other requirements for the combined course as are prescribed in the joint resolutions of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies and the second faculty concerned.

Notes:

  1. The Mathematics, Physics and Information Technology units of study offered by the Faculty of Science may be replaced by equivalent advanced level units of study (if available) subject to prerequisite conditions being met. 
  2. While MATH1001, MATH1002, MATH1003, and MATH1005 are the requisite first year MATH units for the degree, there is an alternate pathway for Mathematics units for those students who have not done HSC MATH extension 1 and are having great difficulty with these units. They can alternately do MATH1011 (replacement for MATH1001), MATH1014 (replacement for MATH1002), MATH1003 (no replacement), MATH1015 (replacement for MATH1005). The contents of these units should be enough to prepare them for second year Mathematics units. The sequence of the units in this case would be MATH1011 and MATH1015 in Semester 1; MATH1003 and MATH1014 in Semester 2. Students cannot do these changes themselves and need approval from the school. 
  3. Students gaining an entry in the Honours degree shall replace ELEC4710 and ELEC4711 by ELEC4712 and ELEC4713: Honours Thesis A and B.
