## Stream Outline

## Stream Structure

**Full time students complete four (24 UOC) courses per semester.**

**Recommended plans of study may be found here**

**Year 1**

Choose ONE of:

- MATH1131 Mathematics 1A (6 UOC)
- MATH1141 Higher Mathematics 1A (6 UOC)

- MATH1231 Mathematics 1B (6 UOC)
- MATH1241 Higher Mathematics 1B (6 UOC)

- PHYS1121 Physics 1A (6 UOC)
- PHYS1131 Higher Physics 1A (6 UOC)

**Plus these following 2 courses:**

- ENGG1000 Engineering Design (6 UOC)
- MMAN1300 Engineering Mechanics (6 UOC)

- COMP1511 Introduction to Programming (6 UOC)
- COMP1911 Computing 1A (6 UOC)
- ENGG1811 Computing for Engineers (6 UOC)

**Plus choose up to 2 electives (12 UOC) from the Year 1 Elective List**

**ENGG1811**is the preferred computing course for the MECH Stream.**CVEN1300**is an acceptable alternative for**MMAN1300**- Not all courses are offered in both semesters but students should complete 24 UOC in each semester.
- Students in BE(Hons)/BSc(Computer Science) dual degree should take COMP1521 as one of their first year electives.

**The following courses must be taken to complete the stream:**

- MECH4100 Mechanical Design 2 (6 UOC)
- MMAN4010 Thesis A (6 UOC)
- MMAN4020 Thesis B (6 UOC)

**Disciplinary Electives**

Students should take at least 18 UOC of the following:

- MANF6860 Strategic Manufacturing Mngt (6 UOC)
- MANF9400 Industrial Management (6 UOC)
- MANF9420 Supply Chain in Engineering (6 UOC)

- MECH9420 Composite Materials and Mechan (6 UOC)
- MECH9650 Introduction to MEMS (6 UOC)
- MECH9720 Solar Thermal Energy Design (6 UOC)
- MECH9761 Automobile Engine Technology (6 UOC)
- MMAN4410 Finite Element Methods (6 UOC)

- A minimum of 60 days Industrial Training must be completed.

**Thesis Arrangements**

- MMAN4010 and MMAN4020 must be undertaken in two consecutive semesters which are the final two semesters of candidature.
- A student must not be enrolled in more than 24 units of credit in any semester involving MMAN4010 and MMAN4020.
- A single thesis project is commenced in MMAN4010 and completed in MMAN4020.
- MMAN4010 is a graded course, carrying 25% of the total thesis mark (for Honours weighting purposes). If a student receives a failure (FL) in MMAN4010, a student cannot proceed with MMAN4020, and must reattempt MMAN4010.
- If the project is abandoned during MMAN4020, a completely new topic must be chosen and the student must enrol again in both MMAN4010 and MMAN4020.
- BE/MBiomedE students must take BIOM5001 instead of MMAN4010 and BIOM5003 instead of MMAN4020.
