Positives: Practical, hands on, real world, well organised, great lecturers, interesting content

Negatives: difficult theory, hard work, long hours, lots of group work

My advice to future students is: It is a great course if you are mathematically/scientifically minded, love learning real-world concepts, looking to learn important team work and communication skills that aren't as prevalent in other courses and interested in being challenged. In particular, the first year of the course gives an excellent snapshot of the different engineering fields and lets you try each one before making an informed decision of which major will be best for you!

Positives: The course is structured in an easy to follow manner and the two degrees complement each other. Both courses are very practical and the learning is very hands on, allowing students to gain the most from their studies.

Negatives: As expected with an engineering degree it can be difficult at times, however this is unavoidable in an engineering degree. The classes are very large, sometimes 500+, so there is no way the content could be personal but it can lead to a lack of motivation.

My advice to future students is: Study hard in high school and take the maths seriously. Try stay on top of your work and attend lectures, when you start to miss lectures it adds up quickly. In saying this, don't let the course scare you, have fun and try to still maintain a semi normal social life.
