BE (Electrical Engineering)/LLB

This page describes a typical enrolment for the B.E. (Electrical Engineering) combined with the Bachelor of Laws. It is up to date for 2012.

This combined degree involves a total of six years of study. Only the first four years are shown here; years 5 and 6 are completed entirely in the Faculty of Law and involve no Engineering units.

During the first four years, you must:

  1. Complete 144 credit points of Engineering core and recommended units of study as described in the Faculty of Engineering Resolutions.
  2. Complete the 48 credit points of LAWS units shown in the tables below.

The unit LAWS1008 Legal Research is shown in semester 1 but may be taken in either semester.

Many of the Science units in these tables have advanced level equivalents. The normal units are shown here.
