Course overview

The Bachelor of Engineering Science provides you with the foundations for further study in engineering or for a career in an enginering-related field.

The degree offeres specialisations in:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Civil Engineeering
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Software Engineering

A general engineering specialisation has been developed to allow you to pursue a stream of topics oriented towards other disciplines.

There are no prerequisite topics for entry into the Bachelor of Engineering Science, and additonal topics and support in mathematics and physics are provided if you do not have a background in these areas.

In addition, the Bachelor of Engineering Science is a good option if you are yet to make up your mind as to which field of engineering you wish to specialise in.

By performing well in this degree you can apply to Flinders University directly to transfer to any of our 4 year Bachelor of Engineering courses and, depending on the topics you have chosen, can do so with minimal loss of time.
