    COURSE CHANGES and TRANSITION arrangements - 2009

    Students enrolled in the Diploma of Engineering prior to 2009 will note that the Course Structure above indicates a change to the core units.

        * ENG153 is no longer offered and has been recoded to SPH142 Applied Physics. Students who have completed ENG153 should not enrol in SPH142.

    Unit Repository – provides general information about each unit including a brief description and the semester and mode offered.
    Timetables – provide detail on the individual class times for units offered internally.  Timetables for the following academic year are available from the middle of December each year.
    Bookshop – if text books have been prescribed, recommended or ordered for units in this course, details are available by unit code through the Casuarina Campus Bookshop.
