The BE(Hons)/LLB(Hons) is an 885-point conjoint can be completed in 6.5 years (13 semesters). You will be required to complete:
- 420 points from the BE(Hons) in your first four years
- 465 points from the LLB(Hons) within 6.5 years
The first year of your degree will comprise Engineering core courses, CHEMMAT 121, ENGSCI 111, ENGGEN 115, 121, 131, 140, 199 and ELECTENG 101, as well as three law courses. The latter will include LAW 121G, which also doubles as the mandatory General Education course to fulfil the requirements of the BE(Hons). You’ll also need to complete the University’s Academic Integrity course.
To complete in 6.5 years (13 semesters), you could enrol in eight 15-point courses in your first year (120 points), nine 15-point courses (135 points) in each of the next five years, and then five 15-point courses in your final semester. This is a higher load than the standard enrolment of 120 points a year.
You need to maintain a Grade Point Average of 3.5 each year to continue with your conjoint.
Your overall programme structure for the subsequent years is dependent on your chosen Engineering specialisation – this is a decision made at the end of your first year. A conjoint planner is available for each BE(Hons) specialisation to ensure that you’re enrolling in the courses required to complete your programme over the subsequent years. You will also undertake a 40-hour workshop practice course in your second year and 800 hours of practical experience to fulfil the requirements of the BE(Hons).
You can choose from a wide range of Law elective courses, including Corporate and Commercial, Public, Criminal, International, Family, and Environmental Law.
As per the requirements of the LLB(Hons), you’ll have to take an additional 20 points of Law seminar courses, and submit a 40-point dissertation in your final year of study.
