Bachelor of Engineering Science / Bachelor of Laws

University of Technology Sydney

The Bachelor of Engineering Science Bachelor of Laws is offered jointly by UTS: Law and UTS: Engineering and is awarded with two testamurs. The course was developed in response to growing demand for legal services in areas in which an in-depth appreciation of complex technical matters is essential. It provides an overview of the legal system as a whole and an in-depth knowledge of an engineering specialisation. The program provides full-time study for students wishing to obtain a professional legal qualification that satisfies the academic requirements only for admission as a lawyer together with a specialisation in engineering science. The course addresses the increasing need for technical expertise and legal knowledge, which are highly sought after in both private law firms and the engineering industry. Graduates develop critical and analytical skills, combined with a strong industry focus, essential for an understanding of the complex links between engineering and the law. Career options include professions as a lawyer in areas of environmental law, technology legislation and technology-specific criminal law; consultant, legal adviser or manager to engineering corporations in Australia and overseas.
