What will I learn?

Enhance your engineering skill set through a dual program with economics, and learn how to question, analyse, model and predict human behaviour.

This dual program will equip you with expertise in economics to enhance your engineering abilities, providing you with skills in investment decision-making and managing complex environmental and social priorities.

In the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) program you’ll develop technical skills through a core specialisation, which will form the basis of your career.

Depending on your choice of specialisation, the skills you'll develop under the program's engineering component will allow you to work in a range of fields, from infrastructure and hospitals to energy and software.

In the Bachelor of Economics program, you'll challenge your personal thinking and current ideas of people and the world, and learn how economics is central to decision-making in business, markets, trade, government, health and more. You'll undertake a variety of courses that will build your knowledge about key economic principles, theories and tools, and study topics including microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.

You'll graduate with a highly regarded skill set, ready for exciting and rewarding career opportunities across an amazing array of industries and organisations.

Mechanical Engineering

From planes, trains and automobiles through to artificial hearts, elevators and the world’s largest power stations, mechanical engineering involves anything and everything with moving parts.

In this broad specialisation, you will learn how to design, manufacture and control machines and engines ranging from power generators through to manufacturing systems. You’ll also have access to innovative technologies and our specialist workshop areas (including our race car workshop) where you can practise your new skills.

You will study air, heat and energy flows, and learn how to control and automate machines. Using your strong analytical skills, you will identify and develop solutions for all kinds of mechanical challenges, and gain an excellent understanding of how machines are used in everyday conveniences from refrigerators to sound production, roller-coasters and computers.

You will develop expertise in creating precision machinery and apply the fundamentals of physics, chemistry, biology and technology to leverage the latest advances in cutting-edge nanotechnology.
