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.

AND  Year Two of Program
 
AND  Year Three of Program
 
AND  Year Four of Program
 
AND  Year Five of Program
 

For more information about the weighted average mark, please click here

To graduate you must complete the following:

 

ALL Core courses listed in Years One to Five of the Program, and appropriate Electives giving a total of 528 credit points.

AT LEAST 12 weeks of Engineering Work Experience, as described below.

Total credit points must be accumulated by obtaining a pass grade or approved credit transfer (exemptions) for all core courses listed below and appropriate electives.

All courses listed may not be available each semester.

PREREQUISITES:  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 the Learning Outcomes of this Program.

ENGINEERING WORK EXPERIENCE: Students are required to have completed Engineering Work Experience to satisfy the requirement that engineering graduates must have undertaken approximately 12 weeks of work experience in a relevant professional engineering workplace, or had experiences equivalent to such 12 weeks. In the past, this was usually done in the non-teaching period over the summer vacation period prior to the final year of academic studies, but more flexible arrangements may actually be better. Engineering work experience can be undertaken throughout your program of studies, and multiple placements can be used to satisfy the 12 weeks requirement. This activity contributes to the Work Integrated Learning of your program, is a requirement for graduation, and adds significantly to your employability.

When engaged in the engineering employment students need to be involved in activities that allow them to observe firsthand the sort of work that professional engineers undertake. Ideally students will be assisting a professional engineer and can engage in regular discourse with that mentor. It is not a requirement that positions are paid, or that any position is for the full 12 weeks, and any position that gives exposure to an engineering environment and professional engineers will contribute to the requirement.

The requirement for Engineering Work Experience may be satisfied in a number of ways and you may even choose to use several of these;

· 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

BUSINESS COURSES: A program amendment affecting various business courses came into effect in 2012. Notes regarding relevant transition arrangements are given at each year level.
