Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really love this course when I studying at Flinders Uni. The lecturer is kind and patient to answer all my questions. They do have some tutorial time for students to let students ask when they have issues on studying. The new engineering building at Tonsley is great! You could feel the engineering atmosphere when being there.

Good university to study
