BB-ENGART Double degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

Defy stereotypes and combine the best that STEM, social sciences and humanities have to offer.

Swinburne’s Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Arts double degree is the ideal study option for those whose interest in science and maths is matched by a fascination of how people and societies interact. It’s progress with a conscience—people and technology working together to build a better future.

Your engineering honours degree equips you with the specialist knowledge and skills to be a fully realised engineer in the field of your choice; plus 8 industry projects (that’s one every semester) to really hone your skills throughout your degree. While in arts, you’ll develop key critical thinking and communication skills to put your passion for a better world into a creative, meaningful career.

Importantly, Swinburne pledges to provide priceless, real industry experiences through Work Integrated Learning programs. Our depth of industry relationships provides unparalleled options for placements, internships, industry-linked projects, and study tours.

Upon graduation, your CV will be characterised by a compelling balance of skills; technically specialised on one side, socially aware on the other. Be an engineer with a superior understanding of issues such as climate change, ethics, and cultural nuance. Or pursue an arts-related career and apply engineering’s technical and management expertise to social issues, from climate change to political power to globalisation. The transferable skills acquired through this double degree can get your career off to an auspicious start.
