Block 5 - Engineering General Electives (Max CP: 12)

Note: Students may take 12 credit points of free general electives to complete the total number of credit points for their degree. Students may take the following units of study as free general electives, provided they satisfy any prerequisite, quota, departmental permission or any other requirements of the units, and the units are not essentially the same or prohibited units for any of the other units in their degree.

(1) Any units of study from the Faculties of: (i) Engineering and Information Technologies (ii) Science (iii) Arts (iv) Sydney Business School

(2) Any other units of study approved by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies Courses Committee, which will be published in an appropriate place by the Faculty.

(3) Any units of study approved by the Dean (or his/her delegate in these matters), or by the relevant Head of School or Program Director, on a case by case basis upon application by the student.

Course: Civil Mid-Year (2017)
CP Required: 192
Min FT Duration: 4.00 Years
Min PT Duration: 4.00 Years
Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering
Years Offered: 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016
Requirements: In summary the requirements are:

Students must complete 192 credit points as follows:

     ► 36 credit points of Engineering core units

     ► 108 credit points of Civil core units

     ► A minimum of 18 credit points of Civil breadth (3rd year) electives

     ► A minimum of 18 credit points of Civil depth (4th year) electives

     ► A maximum of 12 credit points of General (Free) Electives

The completion of a major is not necessary. If a student chooses to do a major, aligned majors can be completed within the 192 credit points described above.

The handbook rules governing this degree are as follows:

To qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering Honours degree, a candidate must

(a) successfully complete 192 credit points, comprising: (i) A minimum of 36cp from the Engineering Core Table, including all required units; (ii) A minimum of 108cp from the Civil Stream Core Table, including all required units; (iii) A minimum of 48cp of additional units from the Civil Stream Specialist Table(s), including satisfying any additional requirements specified for the Specialist Table(s); and;

(b) have an EWAM of at least 65 immediately prior to the semester in which a thesis unit of study is first attempted; and

(c) have an EIHWAM of at least 65 at the completion of the degree; and

(d) complete the requirements within a time limit of 5 years for a single Bachelor of Engineering Honours degree or complete the requirements within a time limit of 6 years for a combined Bachelor of Engineering Honours combined degree.

Candidates who satisfy Clause (a) above, but who have not satisfied all each of Clauses (b), (c) and (d), will qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering degree (i.e. the pass degree, awarded without Honours).

Advanced units in Maths and Science

Most units of study offered by the Science Faculty on the list of core requirements can be replaced by an equivalent advanced level unit; subject to prerequisite conditions (as required by the Faculty of Science) being met. Students considering doing advanced options should seek advice from their department before enrolling.

Study Abroad

Students undertaking Study Abroad in a particular year of their degree must enrol in the appropriate International Exchange Program units of study as an alternative to a semester`s standard units.

Permission from the relevant Head of School must be sought prior to enrolling in exchange units of study.

Majors

A major requires:

(a) the completion of 24 credit points chosen from units of study listed in the table for that major;

(b) satisfying any additional requirements specified for the major, and listed with the table of units for the major;

(c) the completion of a thesis project that has been approved by the Head of School (or delegate) as relevant to the topic of the major.
