1. Overview

Course: Flexible First Year (Stream B) / Science (2014)
CP Required: 24
Min FT Duration: 0.50 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: University Archive
Years Offered: 2014, 2013, 2012

2. Requirements

Stream B is designed to lead students into the following branches of Engineering and IT: Biomedical (Electrical); Computer; Computer Science and Technology; Electrical; Information Technology; Power; Mechatronics; Mechatronics (Space); Software or Telecommunications.

Students transfer to their selected stream of Engineering or IT at the start of 2nd Semester in the 1st year

The Mathematics, Physics and Information Technology units of study may be replaced by equivalent advanced level units of study (if available) subject to prerequisite conditions being met.

Students taking Stream A as first stage of combined Engineering/Science degree may take 6 credit points of junior science units.
