At the UNSW Engineering, we offer a large selection of electives across our schools and disciplines to help prepare you for your future career. Look through our Engineering courses to build your academic path, whether you have a clear goal in mind or are still weighing up your options.

These electives are an integral part of the studies within your degree. A general education complements the more specialised learning undertaken in your chosen field and contributes to your future flexibility.

Our first year engineering elective lists includes recommendations and advice to help you plan your academic journey, including requirements and links to course descriptions. Please speak to an advisor if you need help clarifying your choices.
