Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
In this program students will take a common first year of engineering subjects to develop a broad skills base in order to choose a preferred engineering major. Engineering design is a central theme of this program. The joint degree enables students to combine their engineering degree with a science major over a five-year program.
120 credit points of subjects. Students complete an engineering major plus one of the science majors. All students must complete a minimum of 60 days of engineering professional practice during their studies and must hold a current Senior First Aid certificate at time of graduation.
