Why choose this course?

The engineering component of the degree equips graduates with the ability to design and maintain cutting-edge products or infrastructure. You will be exposed to challenging, hands-on 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.

What to expect

Combine valuable broad business skills with specific engineering knowledge with the Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree. You will complete two degrees in five years full-time.

The majors available in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) include:

  • civil
  • computer and software systems
  • electrical
  • electrical and aerospace
  • mechatronics
  • mechanical
  • medical
  • chemical process.

The majors available in the Bachelor of Business include:

  • accountancy
  • advertising
  • finance
  • financial planning
  • economics
  • human resource management
  • international business
  • management
  • marketing
  • public relations.

Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Your engineering degree features common units in the first year that combine broad foundation principles with a wide range of major choices, giving you flexibility and options before you choose your career specialisation.

Work integrated learning

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is embedded in the curriculum and it is a core component for all engineering students. WIL allows you to graduate with a portfolio of professional skills that provides evidence of your professional competencies.

You are required to undertake 60 days of approved work experience in the engineering environment as part of your work integrated learning.

Career outcomes

Career outcomes

This double degree offers you a wide range of career opportunities.

Graduates can work as professional engineers in a variety of discipline areas. Depending on your area of engineering specialisation, you could work with construction companies, environmental specialists, computer manufacturers, communications and digital signal processing products manufacturers, cable and network equipment manufacturers, defence agencies, electricity utilities, mining industry, telecommunications companies, automated systems and robotics, Civil Aviation Safety Authority, or power generation and supply industry.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Business are skilled in many aspects of business including accountancy, advertising, banking and finance, economics, financial planning, human resource management, international business, management, marketing and public relations.

Professional recognition

All graduates are eligible for an Engineers Australia (EA) membership. EA is a signatory to the Washington Accord, which permits graduates to work in various countries across the world. This course is recognised internationally in the engineering profession, giving our graduates more career opportunities overseas.

Graduates from the Computer Systems and Software major can also become members of the Australian Computer Society.
