The Swinburne Foundation Studies (Engineering/Science) course equips students for further studies across a range of science and engineering-related areas including engineering, biotechnology, and network engineering. It will allow you to develop fundamental communication, IT and mathematics skills and to select foundation-studies streams in areas such as physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and computer programming.
The indicative course fees shown here applies to students studying on-campus in Malaysia for the relevant year only. They are based on a standard study load per year. However, please note that fees are assessed according to a student’s study load in each semester, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted.
