Course Duration

Standard eight semesters full-time or equivalent. Maximum twenty four semesters.

Honours

Honours degree programs are available to students who achieve good results [Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.00 or better) in the third year of their studies. Honours student?s then complete additional work (an extension to the project) in their fourth year of study to qualify to graduate with the degree with Honours. The degree with Honours will be awarded in the following classes depending on the Grade Point Average obtained and other conditions as follows: 1. First Class - GPA>6 in fourth-year subjects, High Distinction for the Engineering project, outstanding work in the Honours extension; 2. Second Class Division 1 - GPA>5.5 in fourth-year subjects, Distinction for the project, excellent work in the extension; and 3. Third Class - Not awarded. Student takes out the pass degree.
