Bachelor of Technology (Engineering)

Course code Y62

Suitable for students who may not achieve the entrance requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours but who aspire to have a career in an engineering-related area.

This course can also be used as a pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering Honours courses.

Applicants from South West WA will be able to study only the first year (up to eight foundation units) of this degree at ECU's Bunbury Campus, which may include attending a short set of lab sessions at Joondalup Campus by the end of each semester. After completing these eight units, Bunbury students will need to attend ECU's Joondalup Campus to complete the rest of their course. This option is only available for domestic students living in the South West region of WA.
