    Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering (Specialisation) with Honours in…


    This degree provides you the option to combine specialisations from science and engineering to create a truly customised degree that delivers a powerful blend of knowledge and skills.

    If you enjoy pursuing your curiosity and understanding the world around you, consider yourself an innovator, and are passionate about shaping the world from our living laboratory, our science majors provides a gateway to an exciting world of immersive learning and discovery.

    This combines perfectly with your choice of engineering specialisations, are you learn to be a collaborator who balances creative design, analysis and applied science to design, build and manage structures, machines, manufacturing processes and infrastructure.

    You will learn how to cross disciplines, and borders, embracing the challenge of creating the world of tomorrow.

    The Bachelor of Economics at the University of Tasmania builds individual capacity for economic thought, and the ability to apply this mindset to solving problems faced by industry, government and the society at local, national and global levels. Our graduates will have the ability to synthesise information and build empirically-valid models to support economic decision making. They will acquire skills to frame problems through an economics lens, to critically analyse data of relevance, and to generate knowledge and innovative evidence-based recommendations to support policy and practice.

    Our curriculum is research-led, with a strong connection to the issues impacting on regional areas such as Tasmania. Throughout the curriculum, we draw heavily on the expertise of our disciplinary scholars to explore areas as diverse as conservation and management of natural resources (such as forests, fisheries and water resources), sustainable energy, social issues (such as housing, health and gambling), economic decisions of individuals and firms and their labour market implications, through to the effects of shocks and contagion on economies. Many of these issues are rooted in human behaviour, and our emerging expertise in behavioural economics allows us to bring psychological insights into understanding such behaviours, equipping our students with fundamental knowledge of the micro foundations underpinning macro phenomena. Our teaching is applied in focus, with a range of authentic learning activities linked to real-world economic situations. We provide a curriculum that nurtures economic ways of thinking and provides a context in which economic ideas are critically examined rather than taken at face value.

    The core of the Bachelor of Economics exposes students to foundation principles in economic theory to provide disciplinary depth, while the majors allow students to specialise in the economics of industry and policy or the economics of social and environmental issues. The course also serves as a useful double-degree with many other courses across the University, such as Arts, Science or Law.

    The modern economy relies heavily on skilled individuals in the fields of science, engineering and technology. As a result, a combined science and engineering degree delivers a powerful combination of practical skills and knowledge that is highly respected by employers.

    If you're not sure where your degree might take you, don't worry! Many students start studying a combined science and engineering degree because they have multiple passions they want to follow, and don't know exactly where they will end up. During your studies, you will meet other students, academics and visiting lecturers, all of whom may spark an idea of where your particular blend of options could take you.

    Career Opportunities with Science and Engineering

    While career options are wide and varied, they typically fall into three main categories:

    • Specialist knowledge related to your combination of specialisations
    • Careers where a broad understanding of science is essential (e.g., teacher, journalism, policy advisor).
    • Careers using generic skills obtained during your degree (e.g., public relations, business manager, marketing, government and local councils).

    At the University of Tasmania, in addition to specialised scientific knowledge and skills, our focus is on giving you the practical and professional skills that are highly sought after by all employers – creative problem-solving, working in a team environment and flexibility of thinking. We teach you how to think, not what to think.

    A career in science and engineering can be in any industry on earth. It will come to where your passion takes you.

    Professional Recognition

    The Bachelor of Engineering component of this combined degree is a professionally accredited degree.

    Accreditation by Engineers Australia, and subsequent recognition by the internationally accepted Washington Accord, means your degree provides truly global qualifications. Your skills will be valued and recognised around the world including New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Korea, Japan, China, South Africa, Ireland, Turkey and Russia.
