CG21 Bachelor of Engineering Technology

In order to complete this course, you must:

  1. Complete the core structure
  2. Complete 1 major

Core Structure

Number of units: 3 Total credit points: 24

To complete this course, you must pass all units in the Core Structure and one Major. The More Details tab has a link to the Course Planners Site which list all units for this course. Note that full-time students generally enrol in 24cp per term and part-time students generally enrol in a half-load of 12cp per term.

Course planners for the Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Majors include the MATH11247 Foundation Mathematics unit. You may opt-out of this unit and complete an additional elective instead if you completed the Mathematics Self-diagnostics Test and achieved satisfactory results. See the More Details tab for how to access the Mathematics Self-Diagnostic Test and for more information on alternate pathways for completing the first-year mathematics units.

Aircraft Maintenance - Avionics Major

Number of units: 17 Total credit points: 120

Introductory and intermediate units of this major may not be scheduled and delivered by CQUniversity staff. It is expected that all the students (domestic and international) coming into this major will come through the Diploma pathway and will be provided credit for relevant units. School of Engineering and Technology is currently in the process of developing a third party teaching agreement with Aviation Australia to deliver these units at the Brisbane and Cairns campuses. Once that agreement is finalised, the units can be offered at CQU and delivered by AA at their campuses.
