Engineering 1 Automatic Timetable: Your ticket to a conflict-free timetable using our automatic block enrolment system.
Every student will have a specific enrolment appointment, which is the designated time you’re allowed to go into Mosaic and enrol into each of your courses. You can find your enrolment appointment in the Student Centre on the right-hand side. Click on “open enrolment dates” to find your specific enrolment appointment.
Your Shopping Cart is where you’ll put classes before you enrol into them. It’s just like buying the things you love, but for your brain. You can add or remove courses from your Shopping Cart as you plan your timetable. Access it in Create My Timetable and in your Student Centre.
