The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Control and Instrumentation) and Bachelor of Information Technology (Application Development) is a dual degree that will equip you with the skills to become a control and instrumentation engineer skilled in both high-level engineering design, and software and hardware implementation of engineering systems. Throughout your studies, you will develop skills in problem solving, teamwork and professional practice together with learning foundational technical content. You will complete work-integrated learning and complete an industry project. Your studies will culminate with a major individual project that integrates both control and instrumentation knowledge and information and communication technology knowledge to confirm your ability to work as a control and instrumentation, and software engineer. This course has a strong focus on learning in context so you will apply theory to authentic scenarios throughout the course.

Assumed Knowledge

Physics, Graphics, Mathematics C

As a professional engineer you can be a driver of change in society and be not only responsible for the technological change, but also the impact it has on communities, society and the environment in general. This course provides a unique opportunity to become a control and instrumentation engineer with high-level engineering planning and design skills complemented by software and hardware implementation skills. Instrumentation and control engineers typically specialise in control systems design, development and maintenance of such systems associated with electrical power, resource, telecommunications, agriculture and automation industries. A career in Information Technology (IT) is fast-paced, challenging and dynamic. IT specialists are sought after in nearly every business or organisation and in a range of employment fields from finance, medicine, arts, education, the military, manufacturing to high-tech business.

Provisional accreditation will be sought from Engineers Australia and Australian Computer Society for the double degree when CQUni governance processes are completed.
