What will I learn?
This combined degree offers a shortened version of the Bachelor of Arts International Studies together with a shortened version of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). Students who choose this course have less opportunity to elect specialist areas of study. On completion, students receive separate testamurs for each degree.
The purpose of the course is to develop skills for leadership in the professional practice of engineering while at the same time providing an opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of another language and culture. It reflects a belief in the international character of engineering and the conviction that Australian professionals can benefit from the early development of an international perspective and a fluency in cross-cultural interactions.
The program comprises a total of 246 credit points, made up of 150 credit points relating to engineering and 96 credit points relating to international studies. The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies requires students to study a region or country major over a minimum of three years. The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies is not offered as a separate degree, but is completed only in combination with the professional degree program. The engineering component is made up of subjects selected from the engineering core, the engineering fields of practice (majors) and professional engineering practice program. The international studies component is made up of subjects in language and culture, foundations in international studies, and contemporary society, and study undertaken in the country of the student's chosen international studies major.
Career options depend on the major chosen. Options are enhanced by international experience, making students more marketable to prospective employers. This course is also offered by Faculty Of Engineering And Information Technology.
