This course is a comprehensive preparation for careers in the professional practice of engineering. Students learn to deal with complex systems and manage large-scale projects using the most appropriate emerging technologies.

Taking a trans-disciplinary approach, Creative Intelligence and Innovation utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields, integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, equipping graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world.

This course adopts a practice-based approach to engineering education and the course content is a mix of theory and practice.

Taking a trans-disciplinary approach, Creative Intelligence and Innovation utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields, integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, equipping graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world.

This course adopts a practice-based approach to engineering education and the course content is a mix of theory and practice. As well as gaining strong technical skills in engineering, students gain skills in business analysis, problem solving, teamwork and communication. Employers look for graduates with industry experience and, in this course, students are exposed to real engineering problems in their coursework as well as completing 12 weeks' work experience. Interaction between work experience and academic curriculum is very strong.

By focusing on the high-level conceptual thinking and problem-solving practices that lead to the development of innovative, creative and entrepreneurial outcomes, students of the combined degree also gain leading edge capabilities that are highly valued in the globalised world, including dealing with critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship, and the ability to work on their own, across and between other disciplines. These creative intelligence competencies enable graduates to navigate across a rapidly accelerating world of change.

Course aims

The course aims to equip graduates with the skills and attributes needed for professional practice and leadership. It is based on the themes of academic development, personal development and professional formation. It provides sound foundations in engineering theory, technical expertise and knowledge of professional practice, while also developing academic literacy, advocacy skills and social awareness so that graduates become lifelong learners and effective citizens in many different capacities. The concept has been strongly endorsed in wide-ranging industry consultations.

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$20,830 to A$40,800 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 270.

Course structure explained

Students must complete 270 credit points, comprising 48 credit points of engineering core subjects, 120 credit points of engineering major, 6 credit points of professional engineering practice and 96 credit points in creative intelligence and innovation. The creative intelligence and innovation subjects are undertaken in accelerated form within July and Summer sessions during the first three years of study, and through one full year of study after completion of the professional degree. The Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation is not offered as a separate degree, but is completed only in combination with the professional degree program.

Industrial training/professional practice

This course is not available with the Diploma in Engineering Practice.

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, preferably outside the university environment. For further details, refer to 41028 Engineering Work Experience.

Within the final year of the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation, students can undertake between 6 and 12 credit points of internship (work experience) that relates to innovation within their research, career development, or core degree specialisations. For students undertaking 12 credit points of internship, international internships may be negotiated.
