The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) course endeavours to incorporate appropriate graduate employability skills, developments in information technology, society’s changing work patterns, and sustainable design practices. Graduates of the Bachelor of Computer Science will have extensive skills in system development, particularly relating to medium- and large-scale projects. They will have developed experience in working on team projects and will have well-developed oral and written communication skills. Graduates of this double degree will have advanced techniques and skills in developing software for engineering plants and artefacts such as robots, CA D/CAM machinery, autonomous car, vehicles, aeroplanes, spacecraft and controlling software for manufacturing plants. Graduates may find employment as middle management in information technologies and software developers in communication technologies, cyber technologies, finance industry, research organisations and the defence industry.
