This combined degree provides students with the opportunity to complete the core and major components of both the engineering and business degrees. This course is essentially the same as the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Bachelor of Business (C09070) combined degree except for the additional requirement of two internships and the completion of the professional engineering practice program. The professional engineering practice program is integrated throughout the course.

For graduates choosing to practise as engineers, the business knowledge is 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.

Typical study program

The example program below is for a full-time, Autumn-commencing student with electrical engineering as the engineering major and human resource management as the business major, with internships taken in Spring session of Years 2 and 4. For further information, contact the appropriate UTS Student Centre.

Course fees

For relevant fee information, are you a Local student or International student

All students at UTS pay tuition fees to contribute towards the cost of their studies.

In 2017 all offers made to domestic undergraduate students will be for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP), which means that the Australian government makes a substantial contribution towards the cost of your education, and you pay the balance through student contributions.

The amount you pay depends on your area of study and the number of credit points (cp) in which you enrol. At UTS 48 credit points is considered to be one Equivalent Full Time Study Load (EFTSL).

The table to the right shows the amount a student can expect to pay for one year of full-time study (1.0 EFTSL).

Students can choose to pay their student contribution upfront, or if eligible, can defer their fees through HECS-HELP.

In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay a Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). The purchase of textbooks and other course materials may also result in additional cost.

You can calculate your student contribution as a percentage of the amounts shown on the table.
e.g. If you are enrolled in a 6 credit point Mathematics subject, your contribution would be 6/48 x $9,050 = $1,131.

Tuition fees for international students vary between courses and range from A$27,040 to A$40,350 per year.

Tuition fees for international undergraduate students can be found using tuition fees search.

Tuition fees must be paid in advance each session and are subject to annual increase. Fees for future year(s) published in fees search, whilst unlikely to change, are estimates only. UTS makes every effort to provide up to date future year(s) fee estimates and to limit any changes, however, UTS reserves the right to vary fees for future year(s) at any time.


For this course, the cost per credit point for 2017 is $755. The total credit points are 288.
