    Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science

    Studying a dual degree at JCU allowed me to delve deeper into the content I was passionate about and gave me the chance to see my field from both a hands-on and theoretical perspective. It allowed me to gain invaluable experience through field trips, industrial opportunities, and a strong focus on teamwork.

    Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science

    There are many opportunities to work with and interact with fellow students and lecturers. There is also a great student support community in engineering and science. The best part of my degree was completing 12 weeks of vacation placement, giving me the opportunity to experience work with industry.
