Engineering First Year (EFY)

You will study the fundamental concepts and develop the required skills common to all areas of engineering. You will have a great opportunity to explore the range of engineering disciplines available to you before choosing your engineering major from second year.

Program

The EFY program was developed as a base from which all Curtin Engineering disciplines seek to produce graduates who have a solid theoretical grounding, a strong practical focus, are culturally astute and professionally accomplished.

The EFY and its support services endeavour to ensure that Curtin engineering students can progress smoothly into their area of specialisation and graduate as sought-after and job-ready engineers. Its cross-disciplinary curriculum has been designed to provide the skill base required for the commencement of discipline-specific engineering studies.
