Who can benefit from Jump Start?

All prospective BE(Hons) students can benefit from Jump Start. The course covers entry-level physics and maths (similar to NCEA Level 3) and is essential for those who may not meet the direct entry requirements of the BE(Hons) or have been away from studies for some time. Additionally, it eases the transition to university life and provides an opportunity to foster new friendships.

The Engineering Jump Start paper, ENGEN100 General Physics and Mathematics for Engineers, will help prepare you for first-year but does not count towards the degree. You can guarantee entry to the BE(Hons) by achieving University Entrance and a B- grade or higher in this paper.
