  • Course description
    The Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise is a unique course that allows students in any of Flinders University's science and engineering degrees to develop professional business, management and communication skills and acquire significant experience in the workplace.

    By adding 1 year to your normal study program you will graduate with 2 degrees and greatly increase both your immediate attractiveness to employers and your potential to become a business leader.

    You will normally take the Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise (Science and Technology) as a 1 year block of study, or the part-time equivalent, after completing at least 66 units of a 3rd year degree or 102 units of a 4 year degree. You will then return to complete your main degree without any disruption.

    This course will equip you to contribute to innovation and entrepreneurship within an organisation, carry out management tasks in a science or engineering based enterprise, and understand a company's structure, operation, responsibilities and business culture.

    Career opportunities

    What can I do with my Bachelor of Innovation & Enterprise degree?  
    Study a language

    Flinders also offers all students the opportunity to major in a language in conjunction with any undergraduate course. The Diploma in Language is designed to provide students with competence in a chosen language that adds greater portability to their qualifications. You will complete a total of one extra year of study and graduate with both your chosen degree and the Diploma in Language. You can apply for this at time of enrolment.

    The Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise (Science and Technology) requires one year of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time). The course is offered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

    The Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise (Science and Technology) is available in combination with a science or engineering degree (the companion degree); it is not available as a stand alone degree for those who have not previously been admitted to, or completed, an approved degree.

    PROGRAM OF STUDY  [February, 2009]

    Students will be granted 72 units of credit towards the Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise (Science and Technology) on the basis of the companion degree.

    To qualify for the Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise (Science and Technology) students must complete 36 units with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic. The Bachelor of Innovation and Enterprise (Science and Technology) will not be awarded until both this degree and the companion degree have been completed.

    Not all topics are necessarily available in a given year.
