About this course

This double degree programme, jointly offered by the College of Engineering and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, aims to equip graduates with excellent knowledge and competency in engineering and economics. 

Engineering underpins quality of life and economic activity. It is the art of applying science to create and enhance technology to benefit humanity. Very often, the decisions and choices in engineering design, process, product and innovation are influenced by economic considerations. The ultimate purpose of engineering and economic endeavours can be seen as meeting human's needs and wants in the presence of resource scarcity. Hence these two disciplines are mutually inspirational and complementary. 

Armed with two honours degrees - B.Eng and B.A. (Hons) in Economics, our graduates can expect more career options in the engineering- and economics-related industries and beyond. Engineers who have strong economic knowledge are also better equipped for management positions as they move up the corporate ladder.
