            Note: This program is only available to re-enrolling students.

            6.2.2O.1 The Petroleum Engineering program comprises—

            (a) all units in Table 6.2.2Oa (Petroleum Engineering core units)—126 points

            and

            (b) two units from Group A in Table 6.2.2Ob (Petroleum Engineering options)—12 points

            and

            (c) units to make up the remaining points required for the course from Groups A, B and C in Table 6.2.2Ob (Petroleum Engineering options).
