Overview

In this combined degree you will develop technical expertise in your chosen engineering stream and complementary project management skills. Along with engineering, you will study core project management subjects including project finance, complex project coordination, analytics, risk management, organisational behaviour and psychology.

You can combine any engineering stream (Aeronautical, Biomedical, Chemical and Biomolecular, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronic, and Software) with a Bachelor of Project Management.

In today's complex world, there is an increasing demand for professionals who can leverage technical expertise to lead challenging projects.

Complementing your engineering studies, the Bachelor of Project Management covers the fundamental project management skills, theories and methods required to help organisations deliver new products, services and infrastructure. 

You can complete this combined degree in five years of full-time study, after which you will graduate with two qualifications. With a wide range of career options spanning the commercial and public sectors, your skills and experiences will position you to take a lead role in innovation and development.

Majors

There are over 15 engineering majors to choose from. Depending on your engineering stream, some majors may require additional study. Certain majors may also have limited capacity. There is no requirement to complete a major.

How to apply

What you'll study

Your study plan will depend on which stream of Engineering you select:

Units of Study

Assumed knowledge

HSC Mathematics Extension 1, Physics and/or Chemistry. If you attempt engineering without this prior level of knowledge of Mathematics you may experience difficulty, so you are strongly advised to undertake an appropriate bridging course. Science assumed knowledge should be appropriate to the Engineering stream chosen.

Admission requirement

Admission to this course is on the basis of a secondary school leaving qualification such as the NSW Higher School Certificate (including national and international equivalents), tertiary study or an approved preparation program. English language requirements must be met where these are not demonstrated by sufficient qualifications taught in English.

 

Course opportunities

Career options are varied as project management skills are transferable across industries. As businesses increasingly focus on more efficient delivery of infrastructure, technology, products and services, the demand for skilled project managers is growing. Combined degree graduates will be uniquely qualified and highly sought after as professional engineers with the additional ability to manage large-scale complex engineering projects. They will have a wide choice of career opportunities in areas such as property development, construction, mining, engineering, water, health, energy, IT, banking and finance or the government or not-for-profit sector. Having a degree in project management will also offer you a clear advantage in your career development.

Professional accreditation

Sydney engineering awards are accredited by Engineers Australia and by other major professional engineering institutions. Our graduates are recognised internationally through the Washington Accord of the International Engineering Alliance.

Graduate opportunities

Career opportunities upon completion of this combined degree are varied as project management skills are transferable across industries. Graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering Honours/Bachelor of Project Management degree will be highly sought after and could work in professional and management roles in property development, construction, mining, IT, banking and finance, state or federal

Domestic students

Indicative Undergraduate Student Contribution Amount


The student contribution amount for a Commonwealth Supported Place is an indication only of the amount payable in Year 1 for a standard full time load of 48 credit points (1.0 EFTSL). The exact student contribution that you pay will depend on the calendar year in which you undertake your study in the course, and the specific units of study in which you enrol. For further information about how to calculate your specific total student contribution, please refer to the University's Tuition Fees website.

Annual review and fee increases


Importantly, student contribution amounts are subject to annual review by the University, and will increase each year of your period of study (subject to a Commonwealth specified cap), effective at the start of each calendar year.

Additional incidental costs


For some courses there are incidental costs additional to the student contribution. Some of these incidental costs are significant, for example, course-specific materials, tools, protected clothing, and equipment. Further information about these costs is available from https://sydney.edu.au/students/materials-and-equipment.html.

Credit card surcharge


Please note that a surcharge of 0.8% will apply for payments made by Visa, MasterCard or American Express. The surcharge is subject to review and may change. Information about payment methods and the surcharge is set out at: http://sydney.edu.au/study/finances-fees-costs/fees-and-loans/paying-your-fees.html.

Potential for inaccuracy


Whilst every reasonable effort has been made to include correct and up to date information here, you are also advised to consult directly with the Student Centre so that they can provide you with specific and up to date information about fees.

International students

Indicative International Tuition Fees for Undergraduate Students


The tuition fee for international undergraduate students is an indication of the fees payable in Year 1 for a standard full time load of 48 credit points (1.0 EFTSL). Depending on the calendar year in which you undertake your study, and if your study load is more or less than the 1.0 EFTSL, your tuition fee will differ from the indicative amount. For further information about how to calculate your specific total tuition fees, please refer to the University's Tuition Fees website

Annual review and fee increases


Importantly, tuition fees are subject to annual review, and will increase each year of your period of study, effective at the start of each calendar year.

Combined undergraduate degree tuition fees


For international students, for combined undergraduate degrees, a single indicative course tuition fee applies for the duration of your study in the combined degree, regardless of the units of study that are undertaken as part of your combined degree. Importantly, the single indicative course tuition fee is subject to annual review, and will increase each year of your study in the combined degree.

Additional incidental costs and health insurance


For some courses there are incidental costs additional to the tuition fees. Some of these incidental costs are significant, for example, course-specific materials, tools, protected clothing, and equipment. Further information about these costs is available from https://sydney.edu.au/students/materials-and-equipment.html. In addition to the fees indicated here for the course of study, International Students studying on an Australian Student Visa must have appropriate health insurance for the duration of their studies on a Student Visa through an approved provider of the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme. This is a requirement of the Australian Government, unless otherwise exempted by the Government.
