This combined degree is the same as the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Bachelor of Medical Science (C09074), except for the additional requirement of two internships and completion of the professional engineering practice program. Students can transfer to this program if they wish to complete the Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice.
There is a strong interrelation between the progress of engineering and developments in science, and a demonstrated need for professionals with a strong understanding and experience in both areas.
A strong professional focus ensures graduates of this course learn the skills employers want with a solid link between theory and practice, and the benefits of hands-on experience.
This combined degree can be completed in less time than would be required to complete the two degrees separately.
