I'd definitely recommend this course to a friend.

It was alright. A lot of the topics were crammed into short periods because they ended up changing the duration of the semester.

Positives: The positives meeting like minded people who are also on the journey to success. It's also an environment where people can just be themselves. I personally enjoy this course because it's also a place to explore what you're looking as a career

Negatives: There are significant amounts of study load. but as is with any major studies. There are some teachers who have a language barrier, so despite them speaking in English, we may necessarily not understand them

My advice to future students is: Just go for it. Take every opportunity you get and just be yourself. Don't hold back

Positives: high learning environment with superb labs. Also professors are knowledgeable and have global contacts.lot of employment opportunities

Negatives: Lot of workload with regular assignments

My advice to future students is: good uni but the must condition is to get 50 percent mark in every subject as well as in every assignment individually.

Positives: My course requires you to undergo 2 6-month internships in your 2nd and 4th years. This means that as a graduate, I would already have relevant industry work experience. Furthermore, my university provides a lot of help in networking with industry partners which will be crucial to the progression of my career. In general, my course enables me to have great prospects in the future.

Negatives: Coming from highschool, the workload is definitely terrible. Some lecturers are not as passionate as needed in order to engage the cohort. Lectures earlier than 10am are deadly. Some subjects are extremely unorganized and require you to ask too many clarifying questions. Building 11 (Engineering) is generally great however other facilities in older buildings require updates. Most engineering subjects have a 50% must pass final exam in order to pass the subject. The trimester format means that the number of holidays has decreased.

My advice to future students is: If you had bad study habits in high school, don't expect them to be magically fixed just because you're finally doing something you like. Take a gap year or semester before uni so that you give yourself a bit of a break. You've been non-stop learning for 13 years! Figure out a way manage work-life-social balance.
