    About Engineering Technology and Business

    As a Bachelor of Engineering Technology/Bachelor of Business (Specialisation) student you will acquire, develop and demonstrate technical engineering and business knowledge and skills in specialised areas of engineering and business, integrating problem-solving, team learning and communication skills.

    The program consists of a common first year after which students select their study discipline in specialisations in engineering and business. The first year of the program is available internally on the Rockhampton, Mackay and Gladstone campuses and is also available externally. Years two and three may be studied externally with some courses also available internally (students should check individual course availability).

    Students focus on engineering and business applications and interactions within systems. They combine engineering and business knowledge and skills in understanding the interaction between modern technology and business. They learn to be innovative by applying, modifying and adapting engineering and business practices in meeting the world’s challenges and problems for people, communities and society.

    Career Opportunities

    Professionals with a double degree in engineering technology and business have access to other career possibilities outside their primary discipline and are highly attractive to potential employers. Career options for graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering Technology/Bachelor of Business (Specialisation) are for engineering technologists/business managers with a specialised technology/business orientation working in private business, government or non-profit organisations in the industry of their choice.

    Graduates, having studied in one of a number of specialisations in the broader engineering disciplines of: civil engineering, mechanical engineering or electrical engineering, coupled with study in business, find employment in a vast array of industry areas. These encompass national and international public and private industry sectors, including the energy, transportation, manufacturing, process, construction, mining, education, finance, commerce, administration, economics, service and supply industries.

    Program Structure

    This program is aimed at the education of engineering technologists/business managers in 1 of 8 engineering specialisations in 1 of 3 disciplines:

        * Civil
        * Electrical
              o Control and Instrumentation
              o Electronics and Communication
              o Power and Machines
        * Mechanical

    Combined with a Bachelor of Business degree. The Business program requires students to complete the 6 core courses in the Bachelor of Business and 6 general business electives. Students are able to use the 6 business electives to gain greater depth in a business discipline, or to gain breadth by including courses across the business disciplines.

    Course requirements

    Students must complete 192 units of credit. In Business courses, students will complete 36 units of credit in core courses and 36 units of credit in electives. In Engineering they will complete 84 units of credit in core engineering courses and 36 units of credit in their engineering specialisation.

    Business courses

    Students must complete:

        * 6 core courses (4 compulsory Level 1 courses and 2 compulsory Advanced Level courses);and
        * 6 elective courses to be selected from those available from the Faculty of Business and Informatics, providing prerequisites have been met.
