Flexible First Year (Combined Degree)

Candidates wishing to proceed to the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) or combined degrees with Science, Arts, Commerce, Law or Project Management, may choose to enrol in the Flexible First Year pathway. For details on eligibility for entry to this pathway consult the course resolutions pertaining to Flexible First Year.
Candidates decide on the stream of Engineering to pursue once they have completed the first semester of the Flexible First Year pathway.

Flexible First Year Core units of study

Semester 1

Foundation units
For Semester 1, maths, computing, and PEP units will count for any stream the candidate ultimately choose. The candidate can pick any engineering project unit to help them decide which direction to take. This unit will count as a core even if they ultimately decide on a different engineering stream.
MATH units of study offered by the Faculty of Science shown in the tables can be replaced by an equivalent advanced level unit, subject to prerequisite conditions (as required by the Faculty of Science) being met. Candidates considering doing advanced options should seek advice from their school before enrolling.
