Selected major: Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Differentiate a business idea from a tangible business opportunity and use innovation theory and techniques to maximise that opportunity. Develop strategic thinking and planning skills, explore business models, interpret sales and marketing opportunities, build an effective team and source capital funding.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours) / Bachelor of Business offers students technical expertise in civil engineering principles plus business skills that are highly valued in large engineering consulting firms. These skills will also be advantageous for roles in construction management. Students gain the technical expertise and management skills needed to plan, design, construct and maintain infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, dams, water supply systems, waste treatment systems, road and rail networks, airports and seaports. The course teaches comprehensive engineering theory and offers students hands-on practical design experience.
Students apply their learning in a professionally focused, multidisciplinary project during their final year of study. They also undertake at least 12 weeks of relevant work experience and can choose to complete postgraduate-level elective units.
