Study hours

For each course you study, you will need to allocate time for various classes such as lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars and practicals. Plus you will need additional hours to study in your own time to complete assignments, readings and projects and contribute to online discussion forums (independent study). So as a general rule, if you are studying full-time you would need to allocate 12 – 26 hours of study when at university and 14 – 28 hours of independent study per week.

Global opportunities

Enrich your studies and your life – make overseas study part of your qualification. Australian and international students may have the option to do an exchange, short-term program or study tour overseas. We have links with universities worldwide.

Your program director

I joined UniSA in 2006. Before that I was a research and consulting engineer with the Turbulence, Energy and Combustion Group based at the University of Adelaide. Prior to becoming a research engineer I worked as a manufacturing engineer in the plastics industry. My research interests are now focused on Engineering Education in particular professional skills development and how we can best support students develop career ready skills.
