Program Description

This program is designed for those students who wish to study engineering but choose to delay their choice of which branch of engineering to study until the end of Year 1. Students stay in this program until they have passed more than 30 UOC and are of Good Standing, at which time they transfer into one of the following programs:
or may apply to transfer into one of the dual award degrees with Science BE/BSc, with Arts BE/BA, with another engineering (limited options) BE/BE, or with Commerce BE/BCom, or into the concurrent degree with Biomedical Engineering BE/MBiomedE.

Program Structure

Year 1

Choose ONE of:
And ONE of:
And ONE of:
And ONE of:
And also choose three Year 1 Electives totalling 18 UOC

These electives should be chosen from the Year 1 elective list

Students can use first year elective courses to satisfy core requirements for specific engineering programs, allowing them to have additional professional elective courses in subsequent years. Some elective courses assume that the student has taken the appropriate prerequisite course whereas some elective courses have exclusions, that is, other courses are excluded. Thus students should choose their electives appropriately to optimise their course options in subsequent years.

Years 2 to 4
As specified for the program into which the student transfers.
