    Re: USyd Chatter Thread 2017

    Anyone do Dalyell Scholars for Engineering, is it worth it.

    Is USYD really garbage compared to UNSW when it comes to engineering.

    I can not comment on whether USYD Engineering > UNSW Engineering. Though, I can say that you shouldn't pick choose USYD > UNSW based SOLELY on Dalyell Scholars if that is a factor for you. The Dalyell Scholars program hasn't been organised well and it does mean that you do less electives (less time for exchange/placement)

    Well at least the guys at Macquarie are smart enough to figure that much out. How long does it typically take to access results?

    Would think it depends on the engineering major you are considering

    Usually I just access the website on the day and it's fine, though we've never received a warning email about server-side bottlenecking though - that's new.

    How is Software Engineering at USYD, I already got an offer for it, I am waiting for a UNSW offer since they didnt participate in the last round.

    Macquarie also had a server/IT outages the other week so maybe Universities need to think about upgrades.

    From what I've heard, it's pretty good. You get more choices among units for software engineering compared to the other engineering streams. I've had experience with the comp sci units here, and they're pretty good.

    The only thing you might consider is whether you're might be more interested in comp sci. I know a lot of students who switched over from software engineering to B. Science majoring in comp sci, because of much higher flexibility (more electives and a second major/minor elsewhere, e.g. maths or statistics), and you get to avoid the arguably worthless core units like 'professional engagement' and 'integrated engineering' (there aren't a lot of this kind of units, but most people who prefer to spend their credit points on more useful and directly relevant courses).

    Is it better than UNSW, but if you had the choice

    UNSW Software Engineering or USYD Software Engineering with Dalyell Scholars.

    I'd pick USYD only because 1. it's more convenient for me to commute to, and 2. I already like it here, so I have a bias for it.

    I think UNSW is a good option too. I don't really think it matters in the end, personally. You should have a look at the course structures of the different degrees (e.g. which units they offer, trimesters vs semesters, et cetera), and factor in non-academic aspects too, like which uni is convenient for you personally.

    Re: USyd Chatter Thread 2017

    Has everyone gotten their re-enrolment emails? I know friends who have received their's, but I haven't heard anything yet.
