Elective and multi-term course
VIP is a elective multi-term course (ENGG2600, ENGG3600, ENGG4600) available to students from their second year onwards, which runs from Term 1 to Term 3 in a single year. Students must complete all three terms to receive course credit (Total of 6UoC). There are three course codes for different degree stages i.e. ENGG2600 is for second year students.
Generally, in each team the VIP academic lead sets mile-stones and project goals, which students contribute towards and are also assessed on. These goals are project specific, view each VIP team's page to get an idea.
There is a general term-by-term assessment structure available in the course outlines. See the 2022 Course Outline: ENGG2600, ENGG3600, ENGG4600 (subject to change).
VIP projects are multi-disciplinary and teams are made up of both academics and students from different streams of engineering but also can be from other faculties. Students are able to rejoin a VIP team by enroling in a second year.
All students must make an application to join a VIP team.
