Overview

This combined degree provides students with the opportunity to complete the core and major components of both the engineering and business degrees. This course is essentially the same as the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Bachelor of Business (C09070) combined degree except for the additional requirement of two internships and the completion of the professional engineering practice program. The professional engineering practice program is integrated throughout the course.

For graduates choosing to practise as engineers, the business knowledge is invaluable in providing a sound foundation for entrepreneurial initiatives and the commercialisation of engineering innovations.

This combined degree can be completed in less time than would be required to complete the two degrees separately.

Career options

Career options include a business career applying advanced technology in commercial settings or practice as an engineer where business knowledge helps to ensure success in commercialisation of engineering innovations. The course provides excellent training for senior management roles.

Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Assumed knowledge

HSC Mathematics Extension 1; Physics; and English Standard.

English Advanced is recommended.

Credit recognition

Students who have previously undertaken study at a university or other recognised tertiary education institution may be eligible for some academic credit recognition for their prior study if the subjects previously completed are deemed by the faculty to be equivalent to subjects in the course.

The prior study must have been completed before commencement of this course, but no earlier than 10 years before commencement. Students must be able to demonstrate that their knowledge is current.

Course duration and attendance

The course duration is six years of full-time study.

Course structure

The program comprises a total of 288 credit points, made up of 198 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice and 90 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Business.

The engineering component of this course is made up of subjects selected from the engineering core, the professional engineering practice program and the engineering fields of practice (majors).

The business component is made up of core business subjects and a business major.
