The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) provides you with an accredited qualification in law whilst enabling learning to be contextualised to the discipline of engineering.
The degree also provides you with a broad, well-rounded legal education that inculcates an understanding of the role the law plays in our society and of how it can assist Australia as a trading nation.
When you graduate, you'll have the technical expertise and management skills for a career within biomedical, civil, construction, manufacturing, mechanical, network and telecommunication engineering environments.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas. You'll also be introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises, and you'll also apply your learning in eight project units (one per semester) related to engineering in professionally focused, industry-linked projects.

Nicola's choice: Swinburne's innovation over tradition
Nicola’s commitment to choosing innovation over tradition meant she choose to study Law and Engineering at Swinburne. As part of her course, she was able to get to experience placements in a number of different ways, which has landed her an ongoing position. Ready to take on new opportunities, Nicola learned to put her hand up for new opportunities and take the next step in her career.
My work requires a thorough understanding of the Local Government Act as well as contracts with different stakeholders. I am glad to have studied Law in addition to Engineering as it gives me an extra edge in providing engineering solutions which are legally and commercially viable.
