High school / secondary education (or higher)
good results in Mathematics
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each band)
At least 1 reference(s) should be provided.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
This is the most flexible of our courses and covers all the essentials, with an emphasis on modelling and design. You’ll be introduced to the role of engineering in business and management, and can specialise in your area of interest.
In the first five semesters, you’ll study mathematics, applied dynamics, mechanics of fluids, mechanics of solids, applied thermodynamics, mechanical behaviour of materials, and electrical and electronic engineering. Other topics include computer-controlled systems and mechatronics.
In the first year, you’ll take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you’ll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It’s designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
You’ll complete a group design project in the third year, and an extended individual project in the fourth year. You may be able to switch between our courses at the end of the first year.
