General advice on course selection

Selecting your courses for the coming term can be challenging. A good starting point is to consult the program structure on the stream pages you find in the table below. Jump straight to undergraduate degrees, postgraduate degrees or helpful links.

Once you know the core courses and/ or electives you want to enrol in you can consult the UNSW Timetable to determine availability and class times.

You may also find it useful to use Bojangles to plan your study. Bojangles was developed by UNSW Computing students and though we think it works well it is important to confirm your timetable through myUNSW as this is not an official site.

Finally, enrolling in the courses can be done through myUNSW – make sure that you complete your enrolment and do not leave any courses as ‘pending’. A helpful resource to assist you with enrolling is the Enrolment Step by Step Guide.

Faculty initiatives

There are many Student Projects at UNSW, allowing students to gain important leadership and project management skills. Some of these projects are in diverse areas such as electronics, photovoltaics and artificial intelligence.

Each school offers its own opportunities, allowing students to challenge themselves and have fun with practical, real-world engineering while studying.
