What will I learn?

This double degree programme, jointly offered by the College of Engineering and the School of Social Sciences, aims to equip graduates with excellent knowledge and competency in engineering and economics.

Engineering underpins quality of life and economic activity. It is the art of applying science to create and enhance technology to benefit humanity. Very often, the decisions and choices in engineering design, process, product and innovation are influenced by economic considerations. The ultimate purpose of engineering and economic endeavours can be seen as meeting human's needs and wants in the presence of resource scarcity. Hence these two disciplines are mutually inspirational and complementary.

With intensifying global competition, growing resource scarcity, and escalating societal and environmental concerns, engineers of the future will face increasing challenges to reconcile engineering activities with these considerations. The combined inter-disciplinary qualities of an engineer and an economist will be highly valued in today's globalised environment where insatiable demand for new products and processes, as well as increasingly complex economic conditions, are creating both opportunities and threats for companies and nations.

By having an advanced understanding of the integrative relationship between engineering and economics, graduates of this programme can better contribute to the nation's wealth and economy through the diverse career potentials in the public and private sectors.

Career Prospects

Armed with two honours degrees - B.Eng and B.A. (Hons) in Economics, our graduates can expect more career options in the engineering- and economics-related industries and beyond. Engineers who have strong economic knowledge are also better equipped for management positions as they move up the corporate ladder. To the enterprising individuals, technical prowess and a good grasp of economic principles are essential for the sustenance of free enterprises and entrepreneurship.
