The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is a four-year degree course with the first year being a common first year and streaming into the various engineering branches occurring at second level. These notes will assist you with your enrolment and will provide some useful information about the various units/subjects that you will encounter in the first two semesters i.e. the first year of the course.
Unless you have been formally granted exemption, you will be required to pass eight units/subjects in order to complete the first year of study - four in each semester. Each unit/subject is assigned 6 credit points so that a pass in the first year will result in the accumulation of 48 credit points - one quarter of the total 192 credit points required for the degree.
