Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours)/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

The University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney)

Program Overview

Combine your interest in mathematics with engineering. Choose from a wide range of engineering specialisations, from traditional disciplines such as civil engineering and electrical engineering, through to those tailored to modern challenges, such as renewable energy engineering. Pairing this with the advanced mathematics degree allows you to gain a deep understanding of the mathematics and statistics that underpin all engineering. In this double degree, you will have access to advanced facilities combined with innovative teaching.

The engineering degree is designed to equip you for a career as a professional engineer, where you will get the chance to apply yourself to engineering design and enquiry projects, professional engineering practice, engineering and technical management, and research. The advanced mathematics component involves advanced coursework with an honours-level research project.

Double Degree Structure

Students must complete 288 UOC (after the 24 UOC reduction from double counted courses).

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (168 UOC)

  •  A 168 UOC Engineering stream consisting of the following:  


  • At least 48 UOC Disciplinary Knowledge and Enquiry-based Courses

  • 30-42UOC Introductory Knowledge core courses

  • At least 12 UOC of elective courses

  • The balance of stream to consist of Foundation Disciplinary Knowledge Courses

  •  Students must also complete at least 60 days of approved Industrial Training experience.

  • Bachelor of Advanced Mathematics (Honours) (144 UOC)

  • An approved Advanced Mathematics (Honours) major and

  • SCIF1131;

  • 48 units of credit Honours Year; and

  • Science elective courses

  • In this dual degree students take 168 UOC for the Bachelor of Engineering (Hons), and 144 UOC for the Bachelor of Advanced Mathematics (Hons), for a total of 312 UOC. Because the Science courses required for both degrees overlap, the total minimum UOC required for the dual degree is reduced by 24 UOC to 288 UOC. Depending on the chosen combination of Engineering stream and Advanced Mathematics major there may be more than 24 UOC of overlapping courses. When a student meets all the requirements for both degrees in less than 288 UOC, students must complete additional elective courses to bring the total to 288 UOC. Those electives must be taken from the Faculty of Engineering and/or the Faculty of Science.  

    In some cases, course overlaps will require students to replace the usual course in one core or major with a more advanced course required in the other program. Specifically,

  • Students completing a Vision Science major count DESN1000 in place of SCIF1131

  • Students completing a Maths major should replace the upper level math course in Engineering as follows:

  • Civil Engineering: CVEN2002 or CVEN2702 - replace with MATH2301 and MATH2801 or higher versions

  • Mechatronic Engineering: MATH2089 - replace with MATH2301 and MATH2801 or higher versions

  • Electrical Engineering: MATH2069 - replace with MATH2011 and MATH2521 or higher versions, and MATH2099 -- replace with MATH2501 and MATH2801 or higher versions

  • Software Engineering: MATH2859 + MATH2400 - replace with (MATH2801 or MATH2901) and MATH3411
