Overview

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Computer Engineering (Major)

The future of engineering is changing. And so are we. You’ll benefit from a new flexible first year with hands-on experiences across all aspects of engineering, more study options for greater career opportunities, and direct contact with industry – your future employers – threaded throughout your degree.

You’ll develop technical skills through a core specialisation, which will form the basis of your career. Choose from either chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronic engineering or software engineering.

You’ll also have the option to complement your engineering specialisation with a major or minor in one of the new and emerging areas of engineering. Our broad range of majors allows you to further tailor your studies to match your career aspirations and deep dive into your interests.

Not sure what you want to study? No worries – our flexible first year allows you to try out introductory courses from our 6 core specialisations to see what you like best. Or, if you prefer, you can enrol directly in your chosen study area from day one.

You'll graduate with a respected honours qualification, with advanced knowledge and skills that will set you apart in a competitive job market, prove your leadership potential and provide a pathway to future research or learning.

Computer engineers design and manage computer-based systems, including any device that has a computer embedded in it. That's almost every device these days – ranging from smart watches and devices, network routers and conventional desktop and laptop computers to the hundreds of computer chips that can be found in modern cars and more that will be found in future self-driving cars.

This major will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to claim your place within a high-growth industry. During your studies, you'll gain skills in digital logic design, computer networks, embedded and desktop operating systems, microcontroller selection and programming, electronics, telecommunications and signal processing.

To study this major, you'll have to choose an engineering specialisation first. The computer engineering major is available in the following specialisations.

  • the BE(Hons) Specialisation in Electrical Engineering,
  • BE(Hons) Specialisation in Software Engineering, or
  • BE(Hons) Specialisation in Mechatronic Engineering.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

The Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE) offers English language courses that can help you meet UQ's English language requirements.

Package offers:

If you meet all the academic entry requirements for your preferred UQ program, but need help to meet the English language requirements, you may be eligible for a package offer.

A package offer includes:

  • an English language course at UQ's Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE), and
  • a conditional offer of admission to a UQ program.

When you apply for your UQ program, indicate that you want to apply for a package offer. Don't apply directly to ICTE.

You still need to provide evidence of your current English language ability (e.g. IELTS or another recognised test). We will assess your skills and place you in the best English course for your level.

Depending on your current English level you will be offered a place in one of the following English language pathways:

  • Bridging English (BE) – study for between 10 and 30 weeks. You can use the final assessment to satisfy the English language entry requirements for your UQ program.

Entry requirements:

You need to meet the academic requirements for entry to the UQ program and be within the specified range of English language proficiency for that program. Minimum entry is IELTS 5.0 or recognised equivalent for most programs, with some programs requiring a higher level.

  • General English (GE) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP) – study for between 5 and 45 weeks. Take an approved English language test at ICTE at the end of the course to show you meet UQ's English language entry requirements.

Entry requirements:

General English (GE): IELTS 4.0 to IELTS 4.5

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) has three entry points – IELTS 5.0, 5.5 or 6.0. 

Bridging English (BE): Minimum entry is IELTS 5.0 (or recognised equivalent) for most UQ programs, with some UQ programs requiring a higher level.
