Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Electrical and Electronic) with Bachelor of Finance

Degree Type Double Degree

Duration 5 years full-time or part-time equiv.

SATAC Code 314911

CRICOS 082098F

This double degree program combines the disciplines of electrical and electronic engineering and finance, allowing students to study towards two degrees simultaneously.

In this program, students study the concepts of electrical and electronic engineering with broad coverage of the global and institutional aspects of financial systems. Electrical and electronic engineers provide the power society needs; they design electronic and computing technologies that enable modern lives; they develop the communications networks and protocols that connect people; and they work to sustain human developments through medical technology and new energy technologies.

With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the degree, the program can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately. At the end of the double degree, students will graduate with two separate parchments; one for each degree.

Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.

For further information about the electrical and electronic engineering component of the degree, see Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic). For further information about the finance component of the degree, see Bachelor of Finance.
