What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Engineering Honours and Bachelor of Commerce combined degree offers extensive knowledge of your chosen engineering stream complemented by a strong grounding in business. You will gain technical, analytical and practical skills, understand the process of commercialisation, and learn to manage innovative projects.

In this program you can combine any of the engineering streams (Aeronautical, Biomedical, Chemical and Biomolecular, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronic, Software and Space). In addition to your engineering stream, you will complete one major in any area of business.

As part of your engineering degree you will undertake the award-winning Professional Engagement Program enabling you to change your approach to learning through self-reflection and extra-curricular activities throughout your degree.

Complementing your engineering studies, the Bachelor of Commerce combines business theory with practice, giving you a solid grounding in areas such as finance, accounting, economics and business statistics. You will be exposed to real-world business cases and experiences drawn from our wide network of Australian and international business partners. The program also allows you to tailor your degree by completing a commerce major.

You can finish this combined degree in five years of full-time study, after which you will graduate with two qualifications. With a wide range of career options spanning the commercial and public sectors, there are vast opportunities for you to shape a unique career.
