What will I learn?

As an engineering graduate, 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 an engineering artefact using an advanced level of skill while developing your professional capability as an engineer. The course will help you to develop an awareness of the important social, environmental and economic impacts of your engineering decisions, and prepare you for practice as internationally recognised professional engineer.

The Bachelor of Science gives you the opportunity to collaborate with your peers and teaching staff in our exciting new learning environments. You will explore real world problems from multiple scientific perspectives and learn the tools of the trade. Your major will provide you with in-depth knowledge and expertise in a scientific discipline, preparing you for entry into the workforce or further study.

Combine valuable skills and knowledge with the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Science degree. You will complete two degrees in five years full time.

The majors available in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) include:

chemical process
civil
computer and software systems
electrical
electrical and aerospace
mechatronics
mechanical
medical

The majors available in the Bachelor of Science include:

biological sciences
physics
chemistry
earth science
environmental science

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.

The Bachelor of Science will give you diverse perspectives to fuel your spirit of inquiry, as well as flexible study choices and the opportunity to prepare for non-traditional science careers. Your science studies have been carefully designed to give you the skills you need for success.

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.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Science are skilled in many aspects of scientific study including: biological sciences, chemistry, earth science, environmental science and physics. Careers might include science writing, teaching, policy development, or commercialisation and management of biological products and processes.
