About

Combine valuable skills and knowledge with the Bachelor of Engineeing (Honours)/Bachelor of Mathematics degree. You will complete two degrees in 5 years full-time.

You can choose from applied and computational mathematics, decision science or statistical science in the Bachelor of Mathematics.

Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Your engineering degree features common units in the first year that combine broad foundation principles with a wide range of major choices, giving you flexibility and options before you choose your career specialisation.

Why choose this course?

As an engineering graduate, you will be technically competent in the fundamentals of mathematics, science, and engineering, with advanced knowledge in at least one specialist area of engineering. The course includes a design stream as well as a capstone project where you will design and build an engineering artefact using an advanced level of skill while developing your professional capability as an engineer. The course you help you to develop an awareness of the important social, environmental and economic impacts of your engineering decisions, and prepare you for practice as internationally recognised professional engineer.

The Bachelor of Mathematics course provides a modern and rigorous training in mathematics to prepare you for both graduate careers in industry and government as well as for honours and postgraduate research work. You will be able to clearly define a path of study associated with different graduate outcomes in order to meet the wide range of employment possibilities open to you as an mathematics graduate. You also have the option to include a second major and minor options in mathematics and statistics. There is currently a shortage of mathematical scientists in Australia and abroad, and this course will give you the essential grounding in applied mathematics, computational methods, decision science and statistics, to help you forge a successful career in the field.

Career outcomes

This double degree offers you a wide range of career opportunities.

Graduates can work as professional engineers in a variety of discipline areas. Depending on your area of engineering specialisation, you could work with construction companies, environmental specialists, computer manufacturers, communications and digital signal processing products manufacturers, cable and network equipment manufacturers, defence agencies, electricity utilities, mining industry, telecommunications companies, automated systems and robotics, Civil Aviation Safety Authority, or in power generation and supply.

Mathematics graduates are employed across a wide range of areas. These include, but are not limited to, finance, investment, data analytics, defence and national security, research, information technology, engineering modelling and simulation, environmental science, health, management, marketing, logistics, media, and education. In addition to their knowledge and skills in mathematics, graduates are also highly valued for their analytical and problem-solving skills. Development of skills in communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork form an integral part of the course.

Accreditation

All graduates are eligible for an Engineers Australia membership. Graduates from the Computer Systems and Software major can also become members of the Australian Computer Society.

Graduates of each mathematics major are eligible for full or associate membership of a number of discipline-based professional associations.
