Outline

This double degree is an extended, optional program for engineering students. As well developing your civil and construction engineering skills, you will further develop your business skills, giving you an added level of experience to take into the first stage of your engineering career.

To satisfy professional requirements, students must complete at least 12 weeks, or equivalent, of exposure to professional engineering practice. This requirement can be met by appropriate work experience or through a combination of technical and non-technical activities.

This major sits within the double degree combination of Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Commerce.
