The VIP course codes are: ENGG2600, ENGG3600 and ENGG4600 each are worth 6 UoC. They are assessment-based and are elective courses for Engineering students and General Education for non-engineering students.
The courses run across three consecutive terms: T1, T2 and T3 (2 UoC per Term) which enables students to extend their project-based learning experience beyond a single semester. Engineering students only can enrol to 20 UoC per term without having to apply for overload approval.
Students from other faculties may have to request to overload via the Over Load Studies form
