Course Information

When you combine engineering and IT, you'll gain the knowledge and skills needed to plan, manage, design and build engineering projects. You'll also develop communication, research and critical analysis skills that will make you highly employable. In fact, two of the fastest growing sectors for jobs growth are engineering and IT. With these two disciplines at its core, this double degree will set you up for a wide choice of career opportunities.

You'll develop the knowledge and practical skills in planning, management, design and build of engineering projects, with your choice of major allowing you to specialise in the area you're most interested in.

You'll also achieve a high level of core IT technical knowledge and a specialisation in either information systems or networks and security.

Industry and expert connections

What makes our Engineering and IT double degree stand out is the opportunity to put what you learn in the classroom into practice through work-integrated learning. We have a wide range of industry contacts and partnerships, ensuring you get to experience hands-on learning throughout your study. In your final year, you'll enhance your employability by working in a engineering organisation where you will complete a design project while working alongside professionals.

Graduate outcomes

You'll graduate with a degree accredited by the national engineering body, Engineers Australia, and by the Australian Computer Society. You'll be set to work in local, national and international sectors across complex systems and projects.

Employment opportunities include roles in civil construction, engineering consulting, manufacturing, mining, oil, corporate IT, research, technology companies and government authorities.
