Purpose of the Program

The purpose of the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical & Electronic Eng) (Honours)/Bachelor of Business(Management) is to:

  • provide learning experiences that provide you with the knowledge and skills essential for a professional career in electrical and electronic engineering.
  • prepare you, on graduation from this program, to be ready to take up employment in electrical and electronic engineering and related industries.  The related industries include the power generation and distribution sector, aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, biomedical, resource, defense, and primary industries.
  • provide you with the capabilities necessary to manage contemporary organisations within complex and changing economic and social conditions.  Contemporary managers are increasingly expected to exercise strong ethical judgement, and be dedicated to a process of continuous learning about their practice.  They are also expected to work flexibly and effectively with those around them in a variety of organisational structures.

In the engineering program you will undertake a capstone experience in the final year courses OENG1167 Engineering Capstone Project Part A and OENG1168 Engineering Capstone Project Part B, in which you will conduct a research project that can be analytical, experimental, design or computational in nature (or some combination of these).

In the business program, the capstone experience course BUSM4546 Organisational Experience provides the culmination of the knowledge, skills and applied work practice experiences that prepare you to transit into the business world.

This program is primarily delivered in face-to-face mode at the City Campus. While most courses in the program are delivered on campus, others are delivered online.
