How do I know which engineering specialisation is right for me?
A great place to start is thinking about what you enjoy and aligning it to what you’re passionate about with a degree. Identifying what you love naturally lends itself to your strengths in Engineering which can make choosing a Graduate Diploma of Engineering or Advanced Diploma of Engineering specialisation not only less stressful, but exciting. Visualise your goals, what you want to achieve and how you see your future career playing out.
The best thing about UniSQ is that we’re pretty flexible when it comes to changing your mind. If you commence a Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering and after a semester decide you want to change specialisation, that’s ok. Our iconnect team can chat through your options.
