The academic performance of each student enrolled in a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Bachelor of Surveying (Honours), or a Bachelor of Construction Management (Building) (Honours) program, offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, is measured by reference to a cumulative Weighted Average Mark (WAM).

The final cumulative WAM determines the level of Honours awarded to students, based upon successful completion of their award.

Please refer to the Bachelor Honours Policy for further detailed information.

The role of SACO is to provide guidance to students and staff regarding academic misconduct issues such as plagiarism, collusions, or any submission and assignment issues. SACOs are guided by the provisions of the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Student Academic Integrity Procedure.

If there is a suspected academic misconduct case, it will be referred to the SACO in order to resolve the issue.

Students will receive an email regarding UON’s academic integrity module. Completing this online module will help you to be familiar with all of the student academic misconduct issues.
