General Regulations View Details
1. In interpreting the course codes, after FCE the first integer denotes the year of study. The second integer denotes as far as is possible, the subject area while the last integer denotes the semester in which the course is taught; 1 for the first and 2 for the second semester. Where the last integer is 0 it means that this is a course which is taught throughout the two semesters such as the Engineering Project in the fifth year of study.
2. Each semester course, with the exception of structural design, shall have a total of 45 contact hours including lectures and tutorials and shall comprise one course unit.
3. There shall be a practical assignment term lasting for eight weeks at the end of the third year of study.
4. The undergraduate students shall complete the following course units.

First Year 15
Second Year 15
Third Year 14
Fourth Year 16
Fifth Year 15
