Double Degree in Engineering and Economics


The 5-year Double Degree Programme (DDP), jointly offered by the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) and the School of Social Sciences (SSS)​, aims to equip graduates with excellent knowledge and competency in engineering and economics – qualities that are highly valued in today's globalised environment.

Promotion

To be consistent with other DDPs, DDP students will be promoted to the next year of study based on the active semesters taken. Students must attain a minimum CGPA of 3.5 for each of the two degree programmes to stay on the DDP. Students who fail to achieve a CGPA of 3.5 in any of the degree programmes for two consecutive semesters will be required to drop out of the DDP.

GER Electives

Although GER-PE and GER-UE are considered fulfilled in this DDP, students may read additional courses outside their graduating requirements to broaden their knowledge. Such courses will be classified as GER-UE and will be included in the CGPA computation for both their BEng and BA degree programmes. These courses can be used to fulfill the requirements of Minor Programmes.

Overseas Programmes

DDP students are welcome to apply for overseas programmes. Such programmes should be completed before the commencement of their Final Year Project.
