Dual degrees broaden your opportunities and allow you to study different areas simultaneously

The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering offer a dual degree program which qualifies students for two degrees after the equivalent of five years of successful full-time study leading to the award of the degrees Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering. On completion of this program, students will have attained a sound knowledge base in both their Science and Engineering specialisations. A total of 240 units of credit is required to complete this dual degree program. Students must satisfy the requirements for the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering components.

Bachelor of Science
Our flagship three-year degree with 24 majors and plenty of room to try out different areas of science.

The Bachelor of Science allows you to study a wide range of science subjects as well as many other areas of interest. This degree is ideal if you know you love science, but you aren't sure what field you would like to specialise in. You are encouraged to choose a broad range of courses in your first year, to expand your general understanding of science and enable you to choose from wide selection of major options in your second and third year. This gives you time to become more familiar with the different areas of science and to discuss possible majors with staff and other students along the way. However, if you already know what you want to specialise in, the Bachelor of Science program can also be tailored for you right from the start.

Bachelor of Engineering
An engineering degree at UNSW sets you up for a rich and challenging experience on all levels. Be surrounded by engineering students and teaching staff who are inspiring, passionate, and driven.

The dual degree is offered in the following Engineering disciplines:

Assumed knowledge for Science 
Mathematics and Chemistry plus one or more of Biology, Earth & Environmental Science, Physics, HSC Mathematics Ext 1 (depending on chosen area of study)
Assumed knowledge for Engineering 
HSC Mathematics Extension 1, Physics and Chemistry (depending on chosen area of study)
