Combined undergraduate programs

Combined degrees enable you to gain two qualifications in less time than studying them sequentially. Many Petroleum Engineering students choose to a combined degree to broaden their career prospects, especially those with an eye on management and consulting positions.

Combined degrees take at least 5 to 6.5 years to complete, depending on the field of study chosen. The BE (Honours) degree is able to be combined with bachelors degrees in:

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Commerce (3764)

This five and a half year program leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Commerce (BE BCom). Students undertaking this program take the core part of the Petroleum Engineering program (i.e. not Professional Electives and General Education) and 96 UOC from the Australian School of Business.

The Commerce component of the program comprises of:

  • 42 UOC prescribed level 1 compulsory and flexible core courses
  • a major of at least 48 units of credit in an approved disciplinary stream
  • additional ASB courses to make up the full 96 UOC

Students enrolled in this program the dual BE/BCom program are not required to take either ECON1202 or ECON1203 in lieu of the mathematics courses in the Petroleum Engineering program.

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Science (3767)

This five year program leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Science (BE BSc). Students undertaking this program take the core part of the Petroleum Engineering program (i.e. not Professional Electives and General Education) and 96 Units of Credit (UOC) from the Faculty of Science (including the 4 compulsory Science courses in the first year of engineering).

A printable version of this schedule is also available here. More information about this program can be found on the University's Handbook page.

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Arts (3763)

This five and a half year program leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Arts (BE BA). Students undertaking this program take the core part of the Petroleum Engineering program (i.e. not Professional Electives and General Education) and 96 UOC from the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences. The program may be reduced to 5 years if Mathematics is taken as the minor stream in the BA component.

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Law (3765)

This six and a half year program leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Law (BE LLB). Students undertaking this program take the core part of the Petroleum Engineering program (i.e. not Professional Electives and General Education) and 144 UOC from the Faculty of Law. With judicious choice of Law electives and final year thesis topic, this may be reduced to six years.

The Law component of the program comprises

  • Compulsory Law courses (96 UOC),
  • Prescribed Law course (6 UOC), and
  • Elective Law courses (42 UOC).

A printable version of this schedule is also available here. More information about this program can be found on the University's Handbook page. The Handbook also outlines approved sequence of Engineering and Law courses.

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Music (3766)

This six and a half year program (3766) leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Music (BE (Hons) BMus). Students undertaking this program take the core part of the Petroleum Engineering program (i.e. not Professional Electives and General Education) and 144 UOC from the Bachelor of Music program.

Students with a minimum WAM of 70 for their Music courses may elect to transfer into the double honours program (3769) which leads to students being awarded honours in Engineering and Music (BE (Hons) BMus (Hons)).

The Music component of the standard program comprises:

  • Musicology Core (42 UOC)
  • Musicianship Core (24 UOC)
  • Performance Laboratory Core (48 UOC)
  • Stream Gateway Course (6 UOC)
  • Stream Courses (12 UOC)
  • Prescribed Music Electives (12 UOC)

More information about the BE(Hons) BMus program can be found on the University's Handbook page including the recommended sequence of study.

Students undertaking the BE(Hons) BMus(Hons) program replace 12 UOC of the musicology core, 12 UOC of the performance laboratory core and the 12 UOC of prescribed music electives with 36 UOC of a Research thesis and/or Creative Practice Project. More information about the BE(Hons)/BMus(Hons) program can be found on the University's Handbook page including the recommended sequence of study.

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Advanced Science (3761)

This six year program leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Science (BE BSc). Students undertaking this program take the core part of the Petroleum Engineering program (i.e. not Professional Electives and General Education) and 120 UOC from the Faculty of Science (in addition to the 4 compulsory Science courses in first year).

The Advanced Science component of the program comprises:

  • An approved major from the Bachelor of Science (Advanced) program
  • 48 UOC Honours Year
  • Science elective courses

Honours is a core part of the Bachelor of Science (Advanced) program. This will typically be completed in the final year of a student’s program. Students are required to attain a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 70 in each semester to remain in the Advanced Science program. Students who do not maintain this standard of performance will be transferred to the regular BE BSc program.

More information about this program can be found on the University's Handbook page.

BE (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering / Bachelor of Advanced Mathematics (3762)

This six year program leads to the award of bachelor's degrees in Petroleum Engineering and Science (BE BSc).
