Modules

Overview

During the first two years, you will study six modules per year across a variety of general engineering.

At the end of the second year you'll choose which stream to study: mechanical engineering, electronics, electromechanical engineering or software engineering. Each stream has a variety of modules available - you will study six of these.

In response to Undergraduate or business demand, there may be changes to the modules available. Undergraduates will be informed accordingly and each module will have gone the appropriate approval processes.
