Course structure—Bachelor of Engineering (60110)6.2.2A.4(1) The course for the Bachelor of Engineering consists of units to a total value of 192 points comprising—
(a) Level 1 units as set out in Rule 6.2.2A.6—48 points
(2) Students must complete one of the following computing units:2
|Availability||Unit code||Unit name|
|S1, S2||CITS1001||Software Engineering with Java|
|S1, S2||CITS2401||Computer Analysis and Visualisation|
1 Students do not enrol in the Professional Practicum units. Upon successful completion, the appropriate unit will be added to their enrolment and the result released together with the results for the other enrolled units for the semester.
2 This would normally occur by the end of their second academic year. Students should note that at least one of these units is included in the core of each Bachelor of Engineering program, and should ensure that they select the appropriate unit.6.2.2A.5 Rescinded
Foundation units6.2.2A.6(1) Students must complete—
(a) all units in Table 6.2.2Aa (Bachelor of Engineering foundation core units)—36 points
(b) two units from Table 6.2.2Ab (Bachelor of Engineering foundation options)—12 points.1
1 Students should take into consideration their intended program when choosing foundation options and may seek the approval of the Faculty to substitute for one or both of the units required under 6.2.2A.6(1)(b) units chosen from anywhere in the University, including core units from their chosen program. If a student chooses a foundation option that is not a core unit for the program they subsequently choose, this unit can be a substitute for an option in that program.6.2.2A.7 Rescinded
Final project6.2.2A.8(1) Students must, over two successive semesters—
(a) complete the 12-point project (parts 1 and 2) for their chosen program;

(2) The submission date for the project report is—
(a) midday on the first University working day following the last day of semester two for students who begin the project in semester one; or
(b) midday on the first University working day following the last day of semester one for students who begin the project in semester two.
(3) In exceptional circumstances the Faculty may, on the recommendation of the appropriate head of school, vary the requirements of (1).
(4) If a student fails to submit the project report by the required date a penalty is applied in accordance with Faculty policy, unless the Faculty is satisfied that there were exceptional circumstances to justify the late submission.
