Overview

Leading a large infrastructure project takes a huge amount of skill and expertise in both business and engineering disciplines — from understanding the financials, to managing staff and resources, all with incredibly effective communication.

This unique two-year double degree is offered at our beachside Gold Coast campus on the doorstep of an international airport. It is taught by industry experts to prepare you as an innovator and leader.

Hone your skills in project and strategic asset management, stakeholder engagement, accounting and economics, and managing digital enterprises. Undertake a research investigation and complete a significant project on a topic you can apply to real world problems.

Graduates will be recognised as experts in their field, with skills highly attractive across industries, both in the government or private sector, or as a consultant.
