Firstly, a word of welcome to all students of The School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications. We hope you have an enjoyable learning experience here this year.
This site has been designed to help new students (including advanced standing students) with enrolment and getting started with their studies. Please read through this information carefully and take special note of dates and deadlines, as these will be strictly followed.
If you have not yet accepted your offer, please go myUNSW Accept Online and follow the steps. This website has all the information you need regarding online enrolment and how to get support and assistance.
EET will provide you with Undergraduate Advisers during the enrolment period leading up to the start of the Session. Please feel free to discuss any matters relating to your program by visiting the School Office: Room 549, MSE/Hilmer Building (E10). You may wish to call ahead to ensure the person you need to speak to will be available - 9385 4000, or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Please see https://student.unsw.edu.au/calendar
Advanced Standing is credit awarded towards a current degree based on study done at another tertiary institution or within another program at UNSW.
Assumed knowledge is what a lecturer or tutor of a first year UNSW course could reasonably expect all students enrolled in that course to know at the beginning of the course.
Compulsory course: a course required for completion of the degree, often a prerequisite for more advanced courses.
Co-requisite: a course which must either be completed successfully before, or studied concurrently with, the course for which it is prescribed.
Course: a "subject" (eg MATH1141, ELEC1111 etc). Students normally enrol in 4 courses in a session and these combine to give a study load.
Course Convenor: academic in charge of a course
Elective course: a course chosen according to the student's interests, from a specified list.
Excluded course is a course that students are NOT permitted to take. Some courses have exclusions with other similar courses, e.g. students who have completed MATH1141 are excluded from taking MATH1131.
Exemption: in specially considered circumstances, a student may be given exemption from completing a specific course requirement of their program and need not complete that specified course. Exemptions need to be applied for and approved by the course coordinator.
General Education: General Education is required as a part of all single degrees. They are selected by students and must be taken outside the Faculty of Engineering. Rules and exclusions regarding General Education requirements often change. Students should contact the School Office if they are unsure of these requirements or are seeking a substitution.
Program: the combination of approved courses, completion of which leads to the award of a degree or diploma.
Pre-requisite: a course which must be completed before enrolling in another course or the next level of courses - e.g. Completing a Level I MATH course before progressing to Level II MATH courses.
Study load: the total number of Units of Credit taken in a session, typically 24 UOC.
Units of Credit (UOC): units (credit points) awarded for successful completion of a course, usually 6. A specified number of units of credit is required for the completion of a degree.
All commencing students finalise their enrolment by enrolling themselves into their courses for 2017. This is done by using the Online Enrolment Portal myUNSW.
You must be enrolled into courses by the date specified above, as late enrolment will incur a fee and you will be disadvantaged with course choices.
Remember that the University requires you to enrol in one semester initially at the start of the academic year.
You must have access to MyUNSW before you can enrol.
For details on how to create your ZPass, visit IT at UNSW. You will require the following information to create your UNIPass online:
- Student Number (e.g. 1234567)
- Academic Program (e.g. 3502)
Once you have successfully created a ZPass, you may log in to myUNSW.
Before you can enrol:
- You need a Full offer for your desired program
- You need to have accepted the Full offer by returning signed forms attached to the offer letter to the Direct Admissions Department, UNSW, OR via online at myUNSW
- International and local fee paying students need to have paid their deposit.
If you need help enrolling, you can contact the Enrolment Support Centre.
The Centre will support face-to-face, telephone and email enquiries in relation to admissions, acceptance of offer and enrolment - including UNIPASS and HERI matters, but excluding academic advice (i.e "Should I enrol in course A or course B?" questions)

Odd and Even Classes
The School of EE&T runs most, but not all, of its labs and tutorials in odd and even weeks. This means that when you are enrolled into a lab or a tut, you may have been enrolled into an odd or even class. Odd weeks are weeks 1, 3, 5 etc of the session, and even weeks are 2, 4, 6 etc of the session. If you were enrolled into an odd week lab for example, you would only have to go to labs in the odd weeks.
Please refer to UNSW General Education guidelines
The Engineering Student Support Services will be providing academic advising to assist new and continuing students to make correct course choices.
Students can ask for advice before enrolling online. Feel free to come by the Engineering Student Support Services located in Ainsworth Building (J17), level 1 or submit an enquiry to us.
