Engineering with commerce is a powerful combination. Many engineers work in areas outside of engineering, such as management, banking and consulting, and many go on to become CEOs of major corporations. Almost 20 percent of CEOs of ASX100 companies are engineers.
The dual degree includes an engineering common first year, allowing you time to learn about engineering and its various branches before choosing an area of specialisation. In this year you will learn to apply your developing mathematics and science knowledge to real life problems.
You will also select your commerce major after sampling from across the main disciplines. This could be economics, finance, management, marketing or sustainability, or another major that aligns with your career aspirations.
The design and systems thinking provided through engineering, together with analytic skills and a practical focus is an unbeatable combination. Our graduates are professionals who know how to get things done.
This double degree will develop your business skills and complement the qualities that make engineers competent business leaders: problem solving skills, planning skills, and their focus on the future and continuous improvement.
Graduates will be prepared for project leadership in fields such as health, built and natural environments, medicine and aerospace. The education you will receive means you'll be able to draw on cross-disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.
Double degree courses include the features of the component degree courses, except that electives may be reduced.
E3001 Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is a specialist course that develops through four themes that combine to underpin engineering practice: fundamentals and foundational skills, design, knowledge and applications, and professional practice.
Part A. Engineering fundamentals and foundational skills
These will develop your understanding of natural and physical sciences, mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences that underpin all engineering disciplines.
Part B. Engineering design
This will develop the engineering techniques, tools and resources for the conduct, design and management of engineering design processes and projects, both in the industrial setting and in the development of research experiments.
Part C. Engineering knowledge and application
This will provide in-depth knowledge of the specific engineering methods of a branch of engineering, and will integrate the specific engineering methods and discipline knowledge into practice. You will develop skills to identify and apply knowledge of contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline. Additionally, your studies will focus on your understanding and application of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in your discipline.
Part D. Professional practice
This will develop your skills in readiness for the engineering workplace. You will develop skills in effective team membership and team leadership, the use and management of commercially relevant data, and the legal responsibilities of engineers. This study will integrate the theme 'Engineering knowledge and application' with your specialist field of engineering.
B2001 Bachelor of Commerce is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete:
Part A. Commerce specified study
This will provide you with a broad foundation for your study of commerce and expose you to several commerce disciplines. This will contribute breadth to your knowledge of commerce and address the graduate course outcomes. It will also give you the opportunity to learn more about each discipline before finalising your choice of major.
Part B. Commerce listed major
This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one discipline area. You will develop, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of your major area of study.
Students must complete 240 points, of which 144 points are from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (including all of the requirements in Part A, B, C and D for the single degree) and 96 points from the Bachelor of Commerce (including all of the requirements in Part A and B for the single degree).
The course progression mapcourse progression map (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2018handbooks/maps/map-e3005.pdf) will assist you to plan to meet the course requirements, and guidance on unit enrolment for each semester of study.
Units are 6 credit points unless otherwise stated.
Students may be eligible to exit the double degree program and graduate with either a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) named degree or a Bachelor of Commerce after four or three years respectively, depending on the units studied.
Students who wish to graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering named degree prior to the completion of the double degree must have completed at least 192 points of studies, including all of the requirements in Part A, B, C and D for the particular engineering specialisation.
Students who wish to graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce prior to the completion of the double degree must have completed at least 144 points of studies, including all of the requirements in Part A and B for the Bachelor of Commerce degree.
