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.

Innovation and Transdisciplinary program

Transdisciplinarity and Innovation at UTS

All UTS students have the opportunity to develop distinctive capabilities around transdisciplinary thinking and innovation through the TD School. Transdisciplinary education at UTS brings together great minds from different disciplines to explore ideas that improve the way we live and work in the world. These offerings are unique to UTS and directly translate to many existing and emerging roles and careers.

Diploma in Innovation

The Diploma in Innovation (C20060) teaches innovation, supports personal transformation and provides the hard skills needed to support the inventors and inventions of the future. Students come out of the Diploma in Innovation, with the hard skills to create and support sectoral and societal transformation. Graduates are able to fluently integrate ideas, across professional disciplines and are inventors of the future.

All UTS undergraduate students (with the exception of students concurrently enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation) can apply for the Diploma in Innovation upon admission in their chosen undergraduate degree. It is a complete degree program that runs in parallel to any undergraduate degree. The course is offered on a three-year, part-time basis, with subjects running in 3-week long intensive blocks in July, December and February sessions. More information including a link to apply is available at https://dipinn.uts.edu.au.

Transdisciplinary electives program

Transdisciplinary electives broaden students' horizons and supercharge their problem-solving skills, helping them to learn outside, beyond and across their degrees. Students enrolled in an undergraduate course that includes electives can choose to take a transdisciplinary subject (with the exception of students concurrently enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation). More information about the TD Electives program is available here.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64 with a writing score of 50; or C1A/C2P: 176-184 with a writing score of 169.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Inherent (essential) requirements

Inherent (essential) requirements are academic and non-academic requirements that are essential to the successful completion of a course.

Prospective and current students should carefully read the Inherent (Essential) Requirements Statement below and consider whether they might experience challenges in successfully completing this course. This Statement should be read in conjunction with the UTS Student Rules.

Prospective or current student concerned about their ability to meet these requirements should discuss their concerns with the Academic Liaison Officer in their faculty or school and/or UTS Accessibility Service on 9514 1177 or at accessibility@uts.edu.au.

UTS will make reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, professional experiences, course related work experience and other course activities to facilitate maximum participation by students with disabilities, carer responsibilities, and religious or cultural obligations in their courses.

For course specific information see the Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology Inherent (Essential) Requirements Statement.

Assumed knowledge

HSC Mathematics Extension 1; Physics; and English Standard. English Advanced is recommended.

For the Biomedical and Civil Engineering majors, Chemistry is recommended. For the Software Engineering major, a sound knowledge of the fundamentals of programming is recommended.

Recognition of prior learning

Students who have previously undertaken relevant study at a recognised tertiary education institution may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL) if the subjects completed are deemed by the faculty to be equivalent to subjects in the student's course. Subjects completed as part of a qualification in which study ceased no more than 10 years prior to the student's first semester in the relevant UTS Engineering degree may be considered. Limits apply to the number of credit points of RPL granted.

Course duration and attendance

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

Course structure

Students are required to complete 288 credit points, comprising 198 credit points in engineering and 90 credit points in business. The engineering component consists of core (36 credit points), major (field of practice) (114 credit points) and the professional engineering practice program (48 credit points). The business component consists of core (42 credit points) and major (48 credit points).

The engineering major is selected at the time of admission; however, it is possible to apply to change major at a later date. Students selecting the flexible major should decide by the end of the first year of full-time study whether to transfer to a designated major or continue with the flexible program.

Industrial training/professional practice

The Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice requires the completion of two six-month internships and the professional engineering practice program. This course is also available without the Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice. For details, refer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Bachelor of Business (C09070).
