Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Civil and Structural) with Bachelor of Finance
Campus North Terrace Campus
Degree Type Double Degree
Duration 5 years full-time or part-time equiv.
SATAC Code 314881
In this program, students study the concepts of civil and structural engineering with broad coverage of the global and institutional aspects of financial systems. Civil and structural engineers create and maintain much of the physical infrastructure of society while managing and conserving natural resources.
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 civil and structural engineering component of the degree, see Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil and Structural). For further information about the finance component of the degree, see Bachelor of Finance.

- Higher Education applicants
You must have completed at least half a year full time equivalent higher education study. A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for each separate program you have undertaken (apart from some double degree programs where the GPA is combined). You compete on the basis of your best GPA.
- VET applicants
You must have completed an AQF Certificate IV or above from a Registered Training Organisation. Your application will be ranked according to the level of the award.
- Special Entry applicants
You must be 18 years or over before 1 February 2018. If you have studied at higher education level in the last two years (for 2018 entry this means you were enrolled in either 2017 or 2016), you must not have accumulated more than a TOTAL of 2 years full-time (or part-time equivalent) higher education study (ie. including any study prior to 2016). If you meet this criteria, you will be ranked according to your result in the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT). Your STAT result is not weighted between verbal and quantitative components. Indigenous applicants may be eligible for entry through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access Scheme. See Wirltu Yarlu for further information.
