Selected major: Software

Learn advanced software engineering with an emphasis on teamwork, problemsolving and practical software engineering skills, including quality assurance, project management and industry-standard development techniques and tools. Graduates are eligible to apply for graduate membership of Engineers Australia.

Selected major: Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Entrepreneurs are innovators. They see opportunities, anticipate needs, solve problems, make plans, take risks, and build teams.

Whether you’re hatching an idea, wanting to know how to launch your own venture, or looking to create competitive advantage within an existing organisation, this major provides the tools and knowledge.

With plenty of hands-on learning, you’ll develop the type of fresh thinking required to build, launch and scale a start-up business or social venture.

Discover how to differentiate an idea from a real opportunity, use innovation theory to maximise that opportunity, and learn how to create desirable, viable business models. 

Develop your strategic thinking and planning skills, explore business models, learn to interpret sales and marketing opportunities, build a team and source capital funding.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Business offers you strong and broad knowledge of engineering and business so you can combine the two in your career.

The course incorporates graduate employability skills, developments in information technology, society's changing work patterns, sustainable design practices and the need to meet 'world best practice' in engineering.

In the Bachelor of Business, you'll develop core knowledge and skills essential to business management and operations in the 21st century. You'll complete the core and major studies from your chosen engineering and business fields of study. After five years' study, you'll graduate with a professionally accredited engineering degree and a business degree.

Build up your CV with real industry experience while you study through our Work Integrated Learning programs, which are a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees and can include placements, internships or industry-linked projects. In this double degree, you'll apply your learning in eight project units (one per semester) related to engineering in professionally focused, industry-linked projects.
