Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of civil and structural engineering with finance. The civil and structural program will provide students with skills and knowledge in creating and maintaining the physical infrastructure of society while managing and conserving natural resources. The finance program introduces students to the global and institutional aspects of our financial systems.
Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil and Structural) / Bachelor of Finance is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.
