^Based on successful completion of your diploma with the required Grade Point Average (GPA) for the program you choose at UTS – this excludes double majors.
* Prerequisite subject is Foundation Mathematics or satisfactory Mathematics Readiness Test.
** Prerequisite subject is Mathematical Modelling 1.
All students in the Diploma of Engineering will have to complete Mathematical Modelling 1 and Mathematical Modelling 2 at UTS Insearch. The program information is correct at time of printing,
please visit our website for the latest details at insearch.edu.au

Required Knowledge: The UTS Insearch Diploma of Engineering accelerated (2 semester) and standard (3 semester) program is offered to students who have successfully completed Year 12 (or
international equivalent) subjects in Mathematics and Physics. Chemistry is recommended only for the Biomedical major and Civil & Environmental major. (Students who do not meet the admission
requirements may be considered for the extended program (4 semesters). The extended program includes three additional enabling subjects to ensure students have the core fundamentals before
progressing onto more advanced subjects.) Students who attained their secondary education in a country other than Australia must have completed equivalent Mathematics subjects (plus Physics)
in year 12, in order to qualify for the accelerated and standard program.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  39

Study
expectations

Workload
On average, students take four subjects per semester
with a maximum of 24 face-to-face teaching hours per
week. However, there are differences based on whether
your program is accelerated, standard or extended.

Study time
As a full-time student, you should spend about 35-40
hours a week on your studies, made up of equal face-to-
face or online class time and self-study. Expect to spend
around two hours each night for completing assignments
and reviewing material.

Learning experience
Our specialised curriculum focuses on collaboration and
teamwork. That means you’ll often work with a group to
complete assessments.If you’re not used to this style of
learning, we’re here to help you adjust so you can get the
best preparation possible for your career.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
As part of our technology-enhanced learning approach,
you need to bring your own device (BYOD) to use in your
classes. Please visit insearch.edu.au/current-students
and review the IT support page for further information.

54
Study management
Attend and participate in class, ask questions, and
get involved in discussions to help you gather all the
information you need for your assignments. Stay
organised and keep a calendar of your assessment due
dates. Try to allow yourself at least two weeks to work
on each one.

Most importantly, don’t be afraid to seek help when
you need it. We’re here to help you with anything you
may need.

Class schedule
Classes are scheduled from Monday to Saturday
between 9am and 8pm. You’ll also have time in
your schedule to make new friends and explore
all that UTS Insearch and Sydney has to offer.

Our knowledgeable enrolment officers will help
you to enrol and register your classes. You can also
contact the Student Centre for assistance.
