Transition arrangements

As programs are regularly reviewed and updated, some students may experience changes to their program of study during the course of their enrolment, which may require transition arrangements.

From 2016, SURV3510 and SURV3610 will change semester offerings. SURV3510 will be offered in 1st semester and SURV3610 will be offered in 2nd semester.

In addition, for 2016 only, SURV2180 and SURV2340 will change semester offerings. SURV2180 will be offered in 2nd semester and SURV2340 will be offered in 1st semester.

As both of these changes occur in the different years of offering in the program, a number of changes have been made to the program structure in terms of the year offering.

  1. SURV3510 Geodesy has moved to Year 4 semester 1.
  2. SURV3610 Photogrammetry has moved to Year 4 semester 2.
  3. CIVL4521 Structural Engineering Project has moved to Year 5 semester 1.
  4. SURV2340 Survey Computing has moved to Year 2 Semester 1 (for 2016 only).
  5. SURV2180 Electronic Surveying has moved to Year 2 semester 2 (for 2016 only).
  6. SURV2130 Surveying 3 has moved to Year 3 semester 2 (for 2016 only).

Transition Arrangements - Advice to Students

Students entering Year 2 of the program:

  • In semester 1, enrol in the structure as it appears (ie, SURV2340, CIVL2130, CIVL2310, MATH2310)
  • In semester 2, enrol in the structure as it appears (ie, SURV2340, CIVL2050, CIVL2240, CIVL2280). In 2017, you should enrol in SURV2130 in Year 3, semester 2.
  • Students also have the option of undertaking 50 units in semester 2 of 2016, which would include SURV2130, SURV2180, CIVL2050 and CIVL2280). This would result in a potential load of 30 units in Year 2 (2017) semester 2.

Students entering Year 3 of the program (assuming the completion of Year 2 of the program):

  • In semester 1, enrol in 50 units consisting of CIVL3170, CIVL3180, CIVL3280, LEGL2009 and SURV2340. This results in a potential load of 30 units in semester 2.

Students entering Year 4 of the program:

  • Follow the new structure.

Students entering Year 5 of the program (assuming completion of Year 4):

  • In semester 1, enrol in 40 units consisting of GENG3830, PHIL3910, SURV4110 and SURV4410.
  • In semester 2, enrol in 50 units consisting of CIVL4541, CIVL4571, CIVL4660, SURV4730 and SURV3610.

Special needs

Students with a disability who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks lead time to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonable adjustments are provided in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements.
