First year Engineering – Additional Tutorials

The faculty is offering to provide additional support to students who may need some additional academic assistance in Engineering and Sciences (Chemistry, Physics and Maths). These tutorials will not replace the current support program offered under the various discipline but these are offered in addition to assists students who are struggling or are ‘at risk’.

Please contact Randa Farrelly in the faculty office to register for this program.

These will only be available until week 12 and only a maximum of 5 hours tutorials will be provided in any specific areas.

Declaration of Disciplines for Semester 1, 2014

Flexible First year students are required to declare their discipline for transition to second year of an Engineering Stream or IT program.

As Flexible First year student you are required to declare the discipline that you would like to pursue for the rest of your degree. we advise that you complete the declaration form before Second semester exams begins and attend our information session on 22 October for further information please click on the link below:

This applies to all students who did General MATH in the HSC and are enrolling in an Engineering or IT degree. Students who did 2 unit MATH, and who wish to do an Engineering stream are recommended to do a MATH bridging course before the start of semester. If you have been identified in week 1 or 2 as having great difficulty in MATH 1001,1002 then please consult the faculty to see if it is appropriate for you to also take the following pathway.

These students will be advised to transfer to the MATH1011, MATH1015, MATH1003, MATH1014 path by the MATHS department. The content in this path should cover the basic engineering requirements of following year units including MATH2061 but they start with an assumption of a lower level of MATH background.

Students must get approval for this change from the year advisor or the faculty.
