Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) Degree
A degree in engineering opens up a wide range of exciting career opportunities that can contribute to advancement in both the business and technological worlds. If you are interested in using engineering practices to design and develop solutions to real-world problems, the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to integrate, synthesise and evaluate technological opportunities in a commercial context.
At UOWD, the BEng program will provide you with the theoretical background you will require as a professional engineer, combined with the teamwork and managerial skills needed to design and develop engineering solutions that can address real workplace challenges. The program offers three different majors in Computer, Electrical or Telecommunication Engineering, allowing you to develop in-depth technical knowledge in your chosen specialisation.
The Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree is an applied program that produces career ready graduates in various fields of engineering. Students undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering program enter professions such as:
- System Designers
- Engineering Managers
- Engineering Analysts
- System Developers
- Network Engineers.
Accreditation and Recognition
This program is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs and is fully recognised within the UAE, in GCC nations and internationally for further education and employment in the private and public sectors. The program is also recognised by the society of Engineers Australia, providing professional recognition in the field of engineering in Australia and globally.
In addition, the program is quality assured by UOW, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). the national regulator of the higher education sector in Australia. UOWD graduates have the opportunity to exchange their UOWD degree for the equivalent UOW degree after completion.
The program structure outlined below is effective for new entrants from Summer Semester (June 2013) onwards. The previous program structure applies for all enrolments prior to this time. Please consult the UndergraduateDegree Planner for information on the previous structure.
All students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering program should sit the Challenge Tests for Mathematics and Physics and, if necessary, may be requested to complete foundation subjects in Mathematics and Physics. Challenge tests are usually scheduled in the first week of your joining semester and students should contact the Faculty Office to apply for the test.
To complete the Bachelor of Engineering program you should accrue an aggregate of at least 220 credit points by satisfactory completing:
2. The following are the core subjects
Professional Practice and Ethics
Note: All B.E students need to take the Engineering Placement Tests on their first semester of study at the university. The Placement tests are conducted to assess the student’s capabilities in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics. Based on the results, students that require additional knowledge are identified and advised to enrol for foundational level subjects MATH020 and PHYS030 which do not account for any credits towards to B.E Program but would help them strengthen their fundamentals to continue in the program.
