Gain automotive engineering and management expertise to prepare you for leadership roles in the automotive and related industries.
In order to be successful in your career in automotive engineering and management, the relevant scientific knowledge and basic skills must be learned from this program.
The automotive engineering component will ensure you're adept in core mechanical and automotive engineering.
The business management component prepares you to manage contemporary organisations within complex and changing economic and social conditions.
Many engineers quickly move into positions of management within organisations. This double degree will give you an advantage, allowing you to advance into positions of responsibility and influence. A business degree will prepare you to operate in a complex financial system - something often associated with large engineering projects.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
