Sunway to Clayton campus internal course transfer
Guidelines for 1st year Engineering students
Students who, at the time of transfer, have completed one semester of study in the Bachelor of Engineering at Malaysia can transfer to the common first year of the Bachelor of Engineering at the Clayton campus. After completion of the common first year, students will be subject to the branch selection process, with all other Clayton students to determine their specialisation for the second year of enrolment.
Students who, at the time of transfer, have completed two semesters in the Bachelor of Engineering are also eligible for transfer. Students transferring with only two semesters of study are considered together with the students already enrolled at the Clayton campus, in the branch selection process to determine their engineering specialisation for the second year of enrolment.
Any student who has failed units and is experiencing sequencing issues and hence will not be in a position to undertake a full 24 credit point study load per semester, will NOT be permitted to transfer to Clayton. Australian Immigration visa legislation requires international students to be enrolled in a full study load every semester.
The branch selection process is used to allocate students to one of the specialisations available at the Clayton Campus. During the second semester of study, students indicate three preferences for their branch of engineering. These preferences will be entered into a computer program which will match students' preferences against their academic results, the criteria for admission to each branch and the number of places available in each branch. The program will allocate students to a branch of engineering. No guarantee can be given that a student transferring to Clayton will be able to enrol in their first preference.
The criteria for selection to a particular branch will vary each year depending on student demand and the number of places available. The criteria required in semester two 2011 (indicative) is shown below.
|Clayton disciplines||2011 Clayton branch selection average requirement|
|Chemical||Weighted average - 53%|
|Electrical and Computer Systems||Unrestricted entrance upon satisfactory completion of level 1 units|
|Mechanical||Weighted average - 51%|
|Civil||Weighted average - 60%|
|Material||Unrestricted entrance upon satisfactory completion of level 1 units|
Important information for Mechatronics Engineering students who commenced at mid year intake at Sunway campus.
Guidelines for all other students
Students who have completed two semesters in the Bachelor of Engineering at Malaysia are also eligible to apply to transfer to one of the following specialist programs. A limited number of places are available in the specialist programs and students will be considered on the basis of academic merit.
|Direct entry||MIN academic requirement for internal course transfer|
|Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering||Weighted average - 70%|
|Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering||Weighted average - 50%|
|Bachelor of Environmental Engineering||Weighted average - 50%|
|Bachelor of Computer Systems Engineering||Weighted average - 50%|
Students who have completed three or more semesters in the following programs can transfer to the corresponding program at the Clayton campus.
|Sunway campus||Clayton campus|
|Chemical||Bachelor of Engineering in the field of Chemical Engineering|
|Electrical and Computer Systems||Bachelor of Engineering in the field of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering|
|Mechanical||Bachelor of Engineering in the field of Mechanical Engineering|
|Mechantronics||Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering|
Students may also be eligible to enrol in a double degree. Applications for transfer are assessed on a case by case basis. For further information email email@example.com.
Students transferring from the Bachelor of Engineering to the Bachelor of Engineering or the Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering are assessed as continuing students. Students transferring into any other single or double degree in Engineering are charged at the commencing student rate.
