NOTE: Only one of CHM1011 and CHM1051 can be taken as a First Year engineering elective. NOTE: If you complete a First Year engineering elective that happens to also be a core unit in your chosen specialisation, you must replace the core with another unit at the same level or higher from the specialisation technical electives list.

Replaces:

You must complete either 6, 12 or 18 credit points of First Year electives, depending on whether you need to undertake any foundation skills units from Part A. One 6-point unit must be from the available First Year electives list below.

Part E. Elective study - First Year

The following text:

You must complete 6 credit points (one unit) from the First Year engineering electives list below unless you are required to complete one of the foundation units PHS1001 and ENG1090. If you have to complete both foundation units, you will need to overload by one unit in your Year 1 or Year 2 study and increase the double degree's total credit points by 6 credit points. Please refer to your course progression map for guidance. NOTE: If you complete a First Year engineering elective that happens to also be a core unit in your chosen specialisation, you must replace the core with another unit at the same level or higher from the specialisation technical electives list.

Replaces:

If you are not required to complete both foundation units PHS1001 and ENG1090, you will have 6 points of First Year engineering elective from the following available on your campus of enrolment to complete. If you are required to complete both foundation units, you will have no credit points available for elective. Instead, the total credit points needed for the double degree will increase by 6 points, therefore requiring an overload by one unit in your First or Second Year of study. Please refer to your course progression map for guidance.
