The Faculty of Engineering and the UNSW Business School offer a double degree that qualifies students for two degrees after five-and-a-half years of study: the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and the Bachelor of Commerce.

Alongside the wide range of disciplines available in engineering, you will gain a good understanding of the many aspects of business and develop specialist knowledge in a business area of your choice, opening the door to a variety of careers and industries.

Honours may be completed in your Commerce major by completing the separate one-year Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree.
