Abstract/Summary In this paper we study the academic performance of the large cohort of international students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) program at the University of Queensland. The need for this study arises from the extremely rapid internationalisation of the Electrical Engineering program over the past five years and the possible consequences of this growth on graduate quality. We conclude that the international students perform as well as, if not better than, domestic students. Thus international student quality does not appear to represent a major limiting factor when examining limits to program growth.
