Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of civil engineering with finance. The civil program will provide students with skills and knowledge in creating and maintaining the physical infrastructure of society while managing and conserving natural resources. All Engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their disciplines, majors and/or a choice of thematic minors such as Structural engineering, Water Systems and Geotechnical engineering. The finance program introduces students to the global and institutional aspects of our financial systems.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)/ Bachelor of Finance and Banking is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 year. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
