Course Information

Engineering is a precise practice, and this double degree will arm you with the science disciplines to hone your technical precision. You'll study applied mathematics or physics and learn to balance the numbers with the art of creative and critical thinking. You'll also gain highly useful skills in mathematical modelling.

In your final year, you can enhance your employability through an industry placement. With an internationally recognised qualification, you'll be prepared for work on complex projects in Australia and overseas.

Industry and expert connections

What makes our engineering and science 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 completing a project within industry.

Graduate outcomes

You'll graduate with a degree accredited by the national engineering body, Engineers Australia, and depending on your specialisation, you'll also be eligible for membership with the Australian Institute of Physics or the Australian Mathematical Society.

With highly-sought after qualifications in engineering and science, you'll find inspiring career opportunities in government, construction, telecommunications, mining, oil, smelting and manufacturing industries.


Changes effective for students commencing from Trimester 2 2020 onwards:
