Your way into a top engineering degree

Do you have a selection rank of 70 or above? Did you complete Mathematical Methods* or equivalent?

At the University of Adelaide, we want to make sure everyone with a passion for engineering can pursue it. If you have not completed the prerequisites to directly enter one of our engineering degrees, you can still study with us in a supportive environment.

What will you do?

Our new Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) – Engineering Pathway is designed for students with a foundation in maths and a passion for engineering. You will:

  • fulfil any prerequisite requirements
  • study core Bachelor of Engineering subjects in your chosen engineering discipline
  • prepare to enter the engineering program of your choice.

Our staff will support you in choosing the right topics within the pathway option to make sure you transition successfully.

Where could it take you?

With guaranteed transfer into your chosen engineering degree following successful completion of the pathway program, you’ll be ready to pursue what matters most to you at South Australia’s highest ranked university for engineering**.

    Recent Secondary Education You must not have completed more than 2 years full time equivalent university study (48 units). You compete for a place with your Selection Rank (ATAR plus any applicable adjustment factors ).
    Prerequisites SACE Stage 2: Mathematical Methods (if studied from 2017 onwards. If studied year 12 prior to 2017, the equivalent subject was called Mathematical Studies).

    IB: Mathematics(SL grade 4 / HL grade 3)

    Higher Education Study You must have completed at least six months full time equivalent higher education study (the number of courses and units will vary depending on your prior institution however at the University of Adelaide, this equates to 4 courses / 12 units). A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for each separate program you have undertaken (apart from some double degree programs where the GPA is combined). You compete on the basis of your best GPA.
    Vocational Education and Training (VET) study You must have completed an AQF Certificate IV or above from a Registered Training Organisation. Your application will be ranked according to the level of the award.
    Work and life experience You must be 18 years or over before 1 February 2019. If you have studied at higher education level in the last two years (for 2019 entry this means you were enrolled in either 2018 or 2017), you must not have accumulated more than a TOTAL of 2 years full-time (or part-time equivalent) higher education study (ie. including any study prior to 2017).
