UQ offers a mid-year (July) entry option for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) for all students.

We’ve also introduced a new course to run over Semester 2 and Summer Semester. Taking this course will allow you to finish common engineering courses by the start of your second year, and join the main cohort for most of your studies.

Some of the finer details: 

  • ENGG1211 (Engineering Design, Modelling and Problem Solving) runs over Semester 2 and Summer Semester, allowing students to finish common engineering courses by the start of their second year. 

  • Students are required to complete semesters consecutively, that is you commence in Semester 2 2018, and complete in Summer Semester 2018 (26 November 2018 - 26 January 2019).

  • ENGG1211 is taken in place of ENGG1100 and ENGG1200.

Signing onto ENGG1211 Classes: 

Lectures (L01)  Your lectures will take place during the L class time. You do not need to sign into L01 as there is only one time and you must attend.

Workshops (W01) Your workshop will take place during the W class time. You do not need to sign into W01 as there is only one time and you must attend.

Problem-Based Learning (R01) Your project and team work will take place during the R class time.  You do not need to sign into R01 as there is only one time and you must attend.

Contact sessions (C01 - C06) are for iEnglish Second Language students and will be allocated in class.

Practicals (P1, P3, P5 – P9)

You will undertake engineering material-based workshops with ENGG1200 students.  Select one Practical only.

  • If a commencing student is required to complete MATH1050, it should be taken in Semester 2  and MATH1051 should be taken in Summer Semester. MATH1052 may also be taken in Summer Semester (and may need to be taken to enable minimum-time completion of some majors).

  • Some majors may be able to be completed from a Semester 2 start without summer study. For more information, please consult an academic advisor.

  • Note that Chemical Engineering and related majors (i.e. dual majors with Chemical Engineering) cannot be completed in minimum time (4 years) from a mid-year commencement unless you have studied high school Chemistry (achieved sound achievement or higher), as the high school Chemistry catch-up course (CHEM1090) is only available to study in Semester One. 

  • First year students in other UQ programs cannot transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in mid-year unless they already satisfied the entry requirements at the start of Semester One. As per QTAC requirements, Grade Point Averages (GPAs) can only be used in place of an OP score after at least one year of full-time tertiary studies has been undertaken. However, students may be eligible to apply to the Faculty to be added to a permission list for Engineering studies in Semester 2, before applying through QTAC for entry the following year.

What does that mean?

When you come to university you will hear a lot of new terms. Here is an explanation of some of them.
