Undergraduate Admissions Criteria

These are the general entry requirements for students who would like to apply for one of the Engineering Institute of Technology's Bachelor of Science degrees online.

Entry Requirements

Students must fulfil the following requirements:

  • An Australian Senior Certificate of Education or equivalent; OR
  • A relevant (to the sub-discipline) Engineering Advanced Diploma or higher from an Australian higher education institution; OR
  • An overseas qualification equivalent to the above item from a structured program of learning that leads to the full or partial achievement of an officially accredited qualification undertaken at a tertiary institution such as a university, government technical college, or government recognised private college (EIT assesses overseas qualifications using Australian Government guidelines to determine their comparability to qualifications); AND
  • Satisfactory English language proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education or equivalent; OR
  • A specified level of achievement in a recognised English language test such as: IELTS (or equivalent) at a score of at least 6.0 (with no individual band score less than 5.5); or TOEFL equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

It is desirable that applicants hold a Senior Certificate with:

  • Advanced Mathematics; or WACE Mathematics: Methods; or equivalent
  • Physics and Chemistry, with equivalents considered.

Applicants with WACE Mathematics Applications (or equivalent) will be accepted, but EIT may also recommend a bridging course as a supplementary activity. To confirm that past studies in mathematics align with these requirements, applicants may compare the mathematics syllabus to the WACE here or contact an EIT Course Advisor for assistance.

Maths Bridging Test/Exam

If a student fails the initial test they must complete EIT’s 3 week bridging course (online) and then take the test again (non-proctored/invigilated). If the student fails again they will be considered a student at risk and managed in accordance with EIT’s Student at Risk Policy.
