Bachelor of Computer Systems Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Business

University of Newcastle

This combined degree program provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in Computer Systems Engineering and Business to complete two awards. The program offers students greater breadth of learning to enhance the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree, and recognises the increasing desirability of graduating with multi-disciplinary skills. The Bachelor of Computer Systems Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Business degree covers both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to create computer systems from the ground up. Students develop skills in software development, electronic hardware design and networking, with a particular focus on learning underlying principles and techniques so that graduates are able to learn and apply new technologies as they emerge through their career. The Bachelor of Business degree gives students a broad understanding of Australian and global business environments. Students benefit from a solid foundation in areas including finance, accounting, marketing, politics and the legal system, and are able to choose a major such as Innovation and Entrepreneurship that complements their main area of study. Completing these two degrees together enables students to complement their technical skills with business acumen and the ability to commercialise engineering innovations.
