Overview

  • The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Bachelor of Business and Commerce will give you the skills to become a successful engineer in the workforce, combined with a strong background of business and commerce principles and practice.
  • It’s an advantage for engineering graduates to have business or commerce qualifications early in their career as they are often required to manage complex projects with both tight schedules and budgets.
  • This combined degree enables you to gain credentials in both disciplines in a shorter time than if you were completing two separate degrees. It incorporates theoretical knowledge with practical experience to help you become successful in whichever career pathway you choose.
