How to study Engineering through the Bachelor of Commerce

To become a professionally accredited engineer you’ll need to complete the Master of Engineering. Commerce students who wish to undertake graduate engineering at the Melbourne School of Engineering will need to successfully complete 4-breadth subjects to meet the entry requirements for the three-year Master of Engineering (MC-Eng). These subjects are:

  • MAST10006 – Calculus 2, 12.5 points
  • MAST10007 – Linear Algebra, 12.5 points
  • 2 x First year level 1 science (relevant to engineering stream e.g. Electrical, Mechanical etc), 12.5 points each

These subjects are all level 1 subjects. As the University’s breadth rules do not allow completion of more than 37.5 points of level 1 subjects, the Melbourne School of Engineering will cover the cost of one subject to be undertaken via the Community Access Program (CAP). At present, this offer only applies to students who are commencing the Bachelor of Commerce 2017 and 2018.

  • To qualify, Commerce students must have completed Calculus 2 and their two relevant science subjects, and have a minimum course weighted average of 65%.
  • Please speak to Stop1 if you’re interested in applying.

Professional recognition for the Master of Engineering is the first degree in Australia to be accredited by both Engineers Australia and EUR-ACE® in Europe*.
