No further student intake
To be read in conjunction with the program of study requirements for the Bachelor of Science (Specialisations).
The Energy and Advanced Materials Specialisation requires three years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time). The Specialisation is offered by the College of Science and Engineering.
The minimum requirements for consideration for entry to all undergraduate courses are specified in detail in the University Entry Requirements.
Successful completion of SACE Stage 2 Physics and Specialist Mathematics or Mathematical Methods or the equivalent is assumed.
Students without these requirements will need to pick up additional introductory topics and therefore completion in the standard duration may not be guaranteed and will be dependent upon the introductory topics required.
The program of studies aims to provide students with an extended foundation in physics and new cutting edge materials together with the ability to acquire extensive subject knowledge in the discipline.
It also aims to develop a range of transferable research, analytical and communication skills including the capacity to:
The program of study provides the foundations that will underpin ongoing professional development, preparing graduates for further study in physics or material sciences or another science or non-science related discipline or for a career in an advanced materials related field or in other areas where the range of skills and knowledge acquired is needed or desirable.
On completion of the course, students will be able to:

To qualify for the Bachelor of Science (Energy and Advanced Materials) specialisation a student must complete 108 units, with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, according to the Bachelor of Science program of study. The program of study for the specialisation is detailed below:
No more than 45 units of First Year level topics may be included in the 108 units for the degree. Topics designated 'any year' or with no year level specified are regarded as First Year level topics.
Elective topics to complete 108 units may be selected from any offered within the University or, with approval from the College of Science and Engineering, from outside the University, provided any course and prerequisite requirements are met.
Not all topics are necessarily available in a given year.
