Overview

Want to understand the complexity of capital markets? How to manage different types of risks? Interested in studying a challenging technical degree with flexible career opportunities?

Financial Engineering is a cross-disciplinary field combining financial and economic theory with the mathematical and computational tools needed to design and develop financial products, portfolios, markets, and regulations. Financial engineers manage financial risk, identify market opportunities, design and value financial or actuarial products, and optimise investment strategies.

Similar to other professional degrees at UC, in your first year of the Bachelor of Science in Financial Engineering we will teach you technical skills and knowledge across the key disciplines of finance and economics, mathematics and statistics, and computer science and software engineering.
