Academic Progress – Special Requirements

In addition to the standard academic progress rules, the Engineering Practice course has the following additional academic progress rules which are established in accordance with Academic Courses Regulation 62(2):

1. A student is classified as 'at risk' of unsatisfactory progress if they:
a. fail any unit of study
b. behave in a manner which breaches the Swinburne Student Charter whilst working on an industry or community project
c. fail to demonstrate reasonable progression towards completion of all capability learning components.*

2. A student is classified as 'unsatisfactory progress' if they:
a. fail any unit of study in the next Progress Review period after being classified as being 'at risk'

*Reasonable progression towards the completion of capability learning components is:

  • 60 credentials before starting 2nd year units (8 Self Domain, 12 Work Domain, 3 Thinking Domain, 10 Process Domain & 27 Disciplinary Domain)
