Modules

Overview

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

At the end of 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 o the modules available. Undergraduates will be informed accordingly and each module will have gone the appropriate approval processes.
