## Academic Rules

**Requirements for the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) in dual degree mode**

When taken as part of a dual degree, a Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) is comprised of 144 units of credit which includes:

- An approved major from the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) program;
- SCIF1121 or SCIF1131*;
- 48 UoC Honours Year;
- Science elective courses.

**For students completing a Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) with a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons), ENGG1000 Engineering Design and Innovation will be counted towards meeting this requirement (i.e. 3761 students are not required to enrol in SCIF1121 or SCIF1131).*

**Academic rules relating to the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours)**

Where a student undertakes a Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) degree program as part of a dual degree with a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) degree at UNSW, the program rules for the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) are as follows:

**1.**Students must complete a minimum of 144 units of credit.

**2.**Students must complete exactly one approved Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) major, and this must be declared before enrolling in level III courses. Details of approved Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) majors and how to declare a major can be found on the 3956 Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics)(Honours) program page.

**3.**SCIF1121 Advanced Science: Professional Perspective and Practice (6 UoC) or SCIF1131 Science: Technological and Professional Perspectives (6 UoC) must be completed in first year. However, students taking program 3761 Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours)/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) must take ENGG1000 Engineering Design and Innovation

__instead of__SCIF1121 or SCIF1131.

**4.**An Honours Year of 48 UOC must be completed. For information regarding the admission requirements and application process for honours, please see the information under 'Honours' on the 3956 Advanced Mathematics (Honours) program page.

**5.**In addition to the courses required for a student's chosen major, and honours, students must take 'science' courses so that the major plus ENGG1000, plus Honours year plus 'science' courses total 144 units of credit. Details of what courses constitute ‘Science’ courses can be found in Table 1 on the 3956 Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours) program page;

**6.**Students must complete at least 24 UOC of level I 'science' courses.

**7.**Students must complete at least 30 UOC of level III 'science' courses.

**8.**Students may not enrol into level II courses until at least 30 UOC of level I courses have been successfully completed.

**9.**Students may not enrol into level III courses until at least 72 UOC of courses have been successfully completed.

**10.**Progression to stages 2, 3, and 4 of this program is subject to academic performance. Students will be required to attain a weighted average mark (WAM) of 70 in each semester. If a student does not maintain this minimum level of academic performance, they will be transferred to the 3767 Engineering (Honours) / Science program.

**Notes:**

- Students wishing to complete a major in Quantitative Risk, should note that this is a large multi-disciplinary major, and when taken in a dual degree program where there is little or no overlap of courses with the other degree program, may involve extra time and cost to complete, and may have visa implications for international students. Typically students wishing to complete a Quantitative Risk major with a Bachelor of Engineering program will require a minimum of 6.5 years of study.
- Students will need to replace one or two of the second year Mathematics courses in their Engineering program with second year Mathematics courses required for the relevant Advanced Mathematics (Honours) major. For further information regarding this, students should read this document: Mathematics in BE / BSc (AdvMaths) Programs, or see staff in the Science Student Centre or School of Mathematics and Statistics.
- COMP courses do not count towards the Advanced Mathematics (Honours) component and will not contribute to the minimum 144 UoC of required ‘Science’ courses described in rule no. 5 above.

**Note:**

*Pure Mathematics major:*students will need to take MATH2301 along with MATH2901 as a replacement for MATH2089, CVEN2002 or CVEN2702 where included in their Engineering program. MATH2301 is additional to major requirements but required to ensure necessary content is covered for the relevant Engineering degree. Completion of MATH2301 will not add time or cost to the program as it can be counted as part of the elective space generated by overlapping content between the Engineering and Advanced Mathematics(Honours) programs.

*Quantitative Risk major:*depending on the Engineering program selected, students will need to take Mathematics courses additional to major requirements according to the substitution document above, to ensure necessary content is covered for the relevant Engineering degree. Completion of a Quantitative Risk major will ordinarily take 6. 5 years to complete in combination with an Engineering program, taking into consideration this requirement.

*Advanced Statistics major:*students will need to carefully choose whether they complete MATH2221 Higher Differential Equations or MATH2621 Higher Complex Analysis as part of their major depending on the substitutions required for the Mathematics in their Engineering program. Students will also need to take MATH2301 along with MATH2901 as a replacement for MATH2089, CVEN2002 or CVEN2702 where included in their Engineering program. MATH2301 is additional to major requirements but required to ensure necessary content is covered for the relevant Engineering degree. Completion of MATH2301 will not add time or cost to the program as it can be counted as part of the elective space generated by overlapping content between the Engineering and Advanced Mathematics (Honours) programs.

- Students majoring in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics or Statistics have a requirement to take 6 UoC of level 1 computer science. ENGG1811 Computing for Engineers, COMP1911 Computing 1A, and COMP1917 Computing 1 taken as part of the Engineering degree counts towards meeting this requirement.
- Students wishing to combine their Mathematics program with a Bachelor of Engineering in Software Engineering should note that this combination will typically require extra time and money to complete.
- Where students complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours) in less than 288 units of credit, the remaining elective courses taken to bring the total to 288 units of credit must be taken from the Faculty of Engineering or the Faculty of Science.

**Requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in concurrent mode**

To obtain the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) a student must successfully complete courses making up at least 168 units of credit described in the stream requirements for the BE (Hons) specialisation for which the student is enrolled. Students must also complete 60 days of Industrial Training.

Students may not count more than 60 units of credit of level 1 courses in this 168 units of credit

**Progression**

To ensure that all students who complete the program attain the honours level learning outcomes of the program, the progression rules for the program are as follows:

- No level 4 BE (Hons) course until 102 UoC of BE (Hons) stream passed
- No level 3 BE (Hons) course until all Introductory core passed
- If any of the conditions below apply, students will be transferred to the Bachelor of Engineering Science program, with such transfer subject to appeal:
- 2 fails in any given core course
- After half or more of the BE (Hons) stream attempted (more than 84 UoC), 50% or more of BE (Hons) stream courses have been failed
- Prior to the final 48 UoC of the stream (120 UoC or more of the BE (Hons) stream completed), a WAM of less than 50%

**Substitution**

Students may substitute up to 12 UoC of Advanced Disciplinary courses (Level 5) in place of Disciplinary Knowledge courses from a school specified stream list of courses with the approval of the Program or Stream Authority.
