Honours merit calculation
Honours merit calculation will be based on the averaged results of 12 units in the final two years of the course with the following descriptive outcomes:
- BEng (Electrical and Electronic) (Hons) with High Distinction; for students who achieve ≥ 80
- BEng (Electrical and Electronic) (Hons) with Distinction; for students who achieve 70 – 79
- BEng (Electrical and Electronic) (Hons) with Credit; for students who achieve 60 – 69
- BEng (Electrical and Electronic) (Hons); for students who achieve < 60
Students who transfer with advanced standing are required to undertake at least nine of these units at Swinburne, including all six Engineering Outcome units, to qualify for an honours merit calculation. This honours merit calculation will be based only on units completed at Swinburne. If a student has not completed at least nine of the specified units, they will graduate with a BEng (Electrical and Electronic) (Hons) as an award title, but will not be eligible for a merit based honours description.
Course learning outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
- Apply coherent and advanced knowledge of chosen specialisation in electrical and electronic engineering in diverse contexts and applications using critical thinking and judgment.
- Apply knowledge of research principles and methods to plan and execute a piece of research with some independence, as preparation for research higher degrees.
- Apply problem solving, design and decision-making methodologies to identify and provide innovative solutions to complex problems within their chosen specialisation with intellectual independence.
- Apply abstraction, mathematics and electrical and electronic engineering fundamentals to the analysis, design and operation of a model, using appropriate engineering methods and tools.
- Communicate proficiently in professional practice to a variety of audiences, function as an effective member or leader of a diverse team, and use the basic tools and practices of project management within project work.
- Demonstrate professionalism, integrity, ethical conduct, professional accountability and cultural sensitivity, and an awareness of professional engineering and business practice in a global and sustainable context.
- Reflect on and take responsibility for their own learning and self-management processes, and manage their own time and processes effectively by regularly reviewing of personal performance as a means of managing continuing professional development and lifelong learning.
Graduates can take up careers in a wide spectrum of industries, including automotive, robotics, aerospace, power industry, electronic appliances, manufacturing, and industrial research. Contributions can be made to these industries in a variety of roles including design engineer, project planner, product designer and project manager.
