Positives: The simulation rooms available to students which allow them to experience a hands on type of environment as well as the support networks which is also available to all students.

Negatives: Haven't come across anything negative as of yet other then the 3 hour gap between a lecture and tutorial class.

My advice to future students is: Do your best. Get the help when needed. Ask questions, most likely other students have the exact same questions as you would. Attend your lectures.

Positive aspect is that it can be studied externally and you are able to gain credit for relevant work experience for certain courses within the degree.

Negative aspect is that you have to travel to the campus for the res schools that you are required to attend for certain courses.

My advice to future students is: To consider just enrolling in the full Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree from the start instead of just the associate degree.

Postive was being able to do this course online and do online classes. I loved being able to go to residential school and meet other people studying in my course and work in teams. I loved my teachers also.

Negative was how complicated it seemed and I had trouble proccessing all of it still when others in my class were way ahead of me. I felt like they needed to make sure all of the class knew everything before they moved on with important stuff

My advice to future students is: Try and stick with your course no matter how hard it seems. Do some tutoring if it gets hard and make sure you ask for help when needed.

Good communication and teaching.

I found that the exams are too strict (or not enough guidance given)
