Positives: Not as big as other unis so you can get more accessible help. Includes a systems engineering minor to make you more employable.
Negatives: It's really broad so if you don't like certain aspects (eg. mechanics or electronics or systems), you can't really get out of it. Around 50-60% of my major is ESL so it can be really difficult to communicate when doing group work. SO MANY CONTACT HOURS. Sometimes the lecturers can be really unreasonable and not reply to emails FOR WEEKS. It's not as practical as other unis so you don't get much hands on experience.
My advice to future students is: Probably look at other unis first
The subjects offered in this course keep improving each semester and might change the contents by the time goes by. So we cannot really rely on the past year paper to prepare for the final exams.
My advice to future students is: Good luck
Positive - offers a system engineering approach as the core of the program so you be studying beyond conventional engineering.
Negative - less practical exercise, more on the theoretical approach
My advice to future students is: If you like going beyond conventional engineering, doing more research and testing on hypothesis then ANU engineering program is for you.
The university itself has a very well-conditioned facilities. The subjects that are in my course are easy to be understood and it is also easy to interact with the lecturers and tutors through the forum as well. However, the subjects have so many workloads which make it harder to score subjects with higher percentage of carry marks.
My advice to future students is: Do not procrastinate as every works that you have submitted worth so many marks.
The course is a bit hard to organise since the subjects have a lot of dues overlapping especially during week 10 to 12. But overall, the course is very helpful yet tiring.
My advice to future students is: Organise and mange your time well and do not procastinate
Decide carefully so that you won't regret your decision. Do what you want to do. Do not do your work at the very last minute. Be alert on the updates of your work and be prepared to work with others.
My advice to future students is: Enjoy your life. Everything just gonna be okay.
I find that the major offered, particularly Renewable Energy system, is a field in engineering that is often overlooked and the fact that it is available in ANU shows how much they care about the environment and the impact it has on future generations. One downside is that there are not a lot of job opportunities, especially where I'm from (Malaysia), catered for those taking this particular major.
My advice to future students is: If engineering is your passion, great. You should always go for your dreams. But you can't just dream it, you have to be able to do it. And with engineering, there are a lot of skills you have to master (especially mathematically) and you cannot just laze around and expect to get good results.
Positives: lecturers explain very well
Negatives: not much practical in engineering courses
My advice to future students is: have to survive by yourself by self studying
Positives: it is challenging and up-to-date which produces good students
Negatives: some lecturers just teach insufficiently that students could not do better in examinations
My advice to future students is: just be active and not to procrastinate
Positives: The facilities provided are quite good
Negatives: They should have wider options of subjects
My advice to future students is: Get to know your passion before deciding on the course
