2018 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.

2018 Transition Plan - please see BH096 program handbook, or the 2018 transition map that tables the new Engineering courses at each year level for more information. 

Important: If you have successfully completed any of the old courses before the commencement of Semester 1, 2018 it will continue to count as a core course in your program and contribute towards the successful completion of your program.

Total number of credit points needed to complete this bachelor degree is 480 credit points or 40 courses equivalent.  This consists of:

- 18 Environmental Science courses: 14 compulsory and Four (4) Environmental Science (Environmental Biology or Chemistry) minor courses;

- 21 Environmental Engineering courses: 17 compulsory and Four (4) Groundwater Minor (Engineering) minor courses; and

- One (1) University elective.

 

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

At RMIT you can apply for credit so your previous learning or experience counts toward your RMIT program.

Lodge the relevant credit/RPL form(s) on the RMIT Connect Student Portal as soon as possible (so you can enrol the correct courses for this semester) along with all your supporting documents, e.g. transcript, resume, reference letters etc.
