Year 1, 2 and 3
In the first three years, you will learn the fundamentals of computer science and the basic principles of computer and network engineering. You’ll also study mathematics and physics that support these disciplines.
Through project work, you’ll gain knowledge of engineering methods, teamwork, communication and leadership skills and learn how to be an effective leader.
All engineering students will also study an Introduction to Engineering course, incorporating a humanitarian-focused Engineers Without Borders Challenge. You’ll have the opportunity to extend this aspect of your studies by completing an Engineers Without Borders elective, enabling you to experience humanitarian engineering first-hand.
Years 4 and 5
Your final two years are specialisation years, aiming to make you work-ready. You will develop advanced skills in computer science, embedded systems and digital communications networks.
You will develop professional skills in research, problem-solving, teamwork, leadership, project management and communication.
Your final year (Capstone) project will develop and reinforce the skills and knowledge you need - as defined by Engineers Australia - to commence your professional engineering career. You may have the opportunity to present your project at EnGenius, an end of year student showcase event.
You’ll also complete a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective in Year 3, 4 or 5.
