First year engineering electives list
Some electives are required later in the program. Also, for each of the specialised programs, some Year 1 elective courses are recommended, that is, they are suggested Year 1 electives, but any other electives may be chosen in Year 1 without affecting progress in the program.
- Not all Year 1 elective courses must be taken in the first year. Some courses may have pre-requisites, co-requisites or exclusions, please check carefully.
- The Chemistry courses are sequenced: CHEM1811&1821 or CHEM1011&1021 or CHEM1031&1041.
- Students can only count one of either COMP1521 or COMP1531 as a first year elective.
- For more details about individual programs, see the relevant entry in the Online Handbook.
- All courses are 6 units of credit (UOC)
Please feel welcome to speak to an advisor if you want help clarifying your choice of courses.
If you are enrolling into 2nd year and later, please contact your school office if you require assistance with your enrolment.
