Positives: The university has a lot of agreements with companies, so you have many opportunities to do a good internship, during your studies there are some units that offer interesting field trips to the northern mines and to the important constructions in the city, and the international department of the university offers excellent exchange programs

Negatives: It's a very difficult engineering, you need to study a lot and if you want to have a part-time job during your studies it could be complicated because you need to dedicate too much time studying, the main problem with the university is that the education is not personalized

My advice to future students is: If you enjoy developing projects, you have a creative mind and you can dedicate a lot of time to studying mathematics it's a good choice, also I advise you to meet more about the construction sector before you select this program because you need to pass too much time into the construction projects and for some people it could be boring

Positives: The teachers are well motivated, experiences and are hard working. The course was interesting with the good units mixed in with one that aren't so great like stats, so each semester was balanced. The uni life is also amazing.

Negatives: No practical experiences

My advice to future students is: Take every opportunity given to you, make sure you ask questions about everything and use every resource to get the best out of everything.

I majored in History.

Positives: Most positive is there are no exams. That it allows me the flexibility to studying fully online from home. Great for full time workers and mum.

Negatives: Group assessment tasks online are near impossible to achieve a high score/ result. Hard to reach all content that an in face lecturer or tut would normally provide. Can be frustrating.

My advice to future students is: Ensure you have an end goal so that through the tough or sometimes boring units/ parts of your course you have the motivation to pull through

Positives: It combines both computer science and some computer engineering aspects. It is a very engaging course and the instructors are willing to work with you if you put in the effort, get to know them, and are honest.

Negatives: How people without prior coding experience are at a predisposition and people with coding experience find the beginning very easy.
And the first semester run unit should be a second sem/second year unit bc the amount of content, and the fact that a bit of prior learning would make it a lot easier...

My advice to future students is: Do high level maths in highschool.
Do an online java coding course, there are plenty of free ones
