Change of undergraduate engineering major
Should your interests change during the course of your engineering studies, it is possible to change your chosen major, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria.
- You must have attempted at least 48 credit points in your current major (excluding any recognition of prior learning you may have received), with the following exceptions:
- transfer to the Flexible (no specified) major
- transfer from the Mechanical and Mechatronic major to Mechanical major or Mechatronic major
- A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 4 out of 7 (weighted average mark of 50) is required. If your GPA is less than 4, you should include a statement outlining your reasons for changing and why you believe you will be more successful in the new major.
It is only possible to transfer to majors available to your course (that have not been discontinued) as indicated in the Handbook. For example, if you commenced your course prior to 2015, you cannot transfer to majors introduced from 2015.
Please note that changing major may prevent you from completing your course in the minimum duration.
