Student review
I found the course to be an uninspiring and unengaging regurgitation of a textbook. Team assignments are typically all due at the same time. Huge variation in value of assignments for effort required (e.g. 20min team presentation worth 10%, 1500 word essay worth 30%). Extremely limited use of modern medias. I’m currently also studying Engineering online at another institution and find the material and deliver much more dynamic and engaging.

The course is very well structured, easy to follow and has a great support network (both from a student and tutor/ lecturer perspective). My experience studying at swinburne was a very positive one right from the beginning through to the end.
