University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00099F

This combined degree is offered jointly by UTS: Engineering and UTS: Business. It allows students to complete the core and major components of both the engineering and business degrees, producing engineers with skills in commercialisation of technology innovation and business graduates with professional-level competency in technology use. Students learn how engineering and business fit together, how to manage technology and innovation, and how to commercialise engineering innovations. For graduates choosing to practise as engineers, the business knowledge gained in this course will prove invaluable in providing a sound foundation for entrepreneurial initiatives and the commercialisation of engineering innovations. This combined degree can be completed in less time than would be required to complete the two degrees separately.


The program comprises a total of 246 credit points, made up of 156 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and 90 credit points relating to the Bachelor of Business. Students wishing to graduate from the engineering component of the combined degree prior to completion of the business component must have completed the business core subjects and at least 30 credit points from their chosen business major. Students graduating with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) without the Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice are required to obtain the equivalent of at least 12 weeks exposure to professional engineering practice.
