QUT’s strong industry links, real-world lecturers and emphasis on practical experience ensure you will be work ready upon graduation. The engineering component of the degree equips graduates with the ability to design and maintain cutting-edge products or infrastructure, and you will be exposed to challenging, hands-on practical experience through laboratories and design projects, enabling you to make an immediate contribution to the industry.
Your additional business degree can help accelerate your career advancement. You will gain valuable skills in management, accounting, international business or marketing, depending on your choice of major, and gain a broad base of commercial knowledge.
Understanding the business component of engineering is highly attractive to employers. A double degree incorporating business gives you a broader knowledge and skill base, equipping you with the ability to apply yourself to work challenges from a different perspective.
