Studying the Bachelor of Applied Innovation alongside another Degree
Swinburne University is introducing the Bachelor of Applied Innovation to be studied in conjunction with a number of other degrees. With just one extra year, students get to graduate with a double degree.
Depending on the degree a student chooses to study alongside the Bachelor of Applied Innovation, various skills will be developed, including –
- a student’s collaboration, creativity, and complex problem-solving skills in real-world contexts.
- how to apply innovation toolkits, prototype solutions and participate in challenges such as innovation sprints inspired by their passions and interests.
- gaining the practical and technical skills to think strategically about how to employ innovative ideas in their studies and in the broader society.
- learning how to make decisions of impact, based on analytical and strategic thinking, human understanding, and respect for future generations – with supporting technological know-how.
- undertaking placements, internships or industry-based project work, and benefit from interdisciplinary, experiential learning. Students will tap into their creativity, curiosity, and leadership potential as they gain the skills to build a better future.
The following double degrees including Applied Innovation are on offer. Students are encouraged to browse the links that provide more details about the core and major units on offer in the Applied Innovation degree as they do differ from double degree to double degree:
