What will I learn?

As an engineering graduate of this degree, you will be technically competent in the fundamentals of mathematics, science and engineering, with advanced knowledge in at least one specialist area of engineering. The course includes a design stream as well as a capstone project where you will design and build engineering artefact, using your knowledge and skills. Through the course, you will develop an awareness of the important social, environmental and economic impacts of your engineering decisions, and you will be prepared for practice as internationally recognised professional engineers.

As an information technology graduate of this degree, you will be equipped to build and apply creative, innovative IT solutions across diverse industries. A hands-on, real-world based curriculum gives you the opportunity to explore a wide range of areas within the two strands of this degree, and gain deep understanding within your chosen area of study from either information systems or computer science. You learn to harness your creativity and people skills to maximise the impact of your technical know-how in the IT marketplace. It positions you for a challenging and rewarding career within the global economy.

Combine valuable skills and knowledge with the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Information Technology 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
process.

You can choose from computer science or information systems in the Bachelor of Information Technology.

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.

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.

Many graduates find employment in areas such as communications, railways, electricity supply, hospitals, transport and in organisations that are using electronics, electronic systems, computers and microprocessors to monitor, control, communicate and optimise processes and production, in areas such as mining and aerospace.
