2017 Enrolment Program Structure

For students who commence their study in this program from 1 January 2016 onwards, please note that some courses listed in this structure will have their course marks count toward your program's weighted average mark. Your weighted average mark will determine the honours level of your award once you have completed the program. If a course counts toward your weighted average mark, that fact will be stated in its course guide. In Enrolment Online, after you completed your course enrolment, you will be notified which of the enrolled courses will count toward the weighted average mark.

To graduate you must complete the following:

 

All core courses listed in Years 1 to 4 of the program and appropriate electives giving a total of 384 credit points. Total credit points must be accumulated by obtaining a pass grade or approved credit transfer (exemptions) for all core courses and appropriate electives listed.

Prerequisities: You are required to successfully complete any prerequisite course/s before undertaking the next level of course and to follow the sequence of the academic plan unless approval to vary is given by the Program Manager. This is intended to help you maximise your attainment of Learning Outcomes in this program. 

 

ENGINEERING WORK EXPERIENCE

It is a requirement that engineering graduates complete approximately 12 weeks of work experience in a professional engineering workplace or have relevant work experiences equivalent to 12 weeks. Engineering work experience is a requirement for graduation. This can be undertaken throughout your program and multiple placements can be used to satisfy the 12-week requirement. It contributes to the Work Integrated Learning of your program and adds significantly to your employability. When engaged in engineering employment, you need to be involved in activities that allow you to observe firsthand the sort of work that professional engineers undertake. Ideally, you will be assisting a professional engineer and will be engaging in regular discourse with that mentor. It is not a requirement that work experiences are paid or that any work experience is for the full 12 weeks. Any position that gives you exposure to an engineering environment and to professional engineers will contribute to the requirement.

Engineering work experience may be undertaken in the following methods:

·  Employment with a suitable company in Australia or overseas (12 weeks continuously or equivalent in multiple shorter periods at different stages of your program)

·   An extended placement of 6 – 12 months

·  Completion of a final year 'Professional Project' supervised by an external   professional engineer.
