Most papers last 1 semester and are worth 15 points. You must complete 120 points each year (360 points for the entire degree). In each year you will study core (compulsory) papers, and select other papers from a range of options.
In addition to successfully completing all the papers, you are also required to complete a minimum of 600 hours of planned supervised work placement prior to graduation. The aim of the work experience is to expose you to the engineering practices and management systems in the work environment.
Builds the foundation of knowledge and skills required for your chosen major.
Core papers (for all majors):
All students except Mechanical Engineering students must also take the following papers:
You begin to specialise in your chosen major.
You will undertake further study to advance your knowledge in your major.
All Year 3 students undertake an industry-based research project paper called Specialisation Project. The project allows you to apply the knowledge gained in the first 2 years of study in a research or industrial environment. You will develop the practical design and production skills appropriate for a practising engineer. In addition, there is emphasis on the development of problem solving, communication and project management skills.
