Teach-out plans

Master of Engineering in Digital Systems and Telecommunications (NDSTE)

The teach-out program for the NDSTE will involve running all of the current compulsory courses, except for the two listed below:

Core courses not scheduled

Approved replacement courses

ENGN 8534 – Information Theory

ENGN 8535 – Engineering Data Analytics (Sem 1)

ENGN 8637 – Adv Topics in Comms & Sig Proc

ENGN 6528 – Computer Vision* (Sem 1)

 

COMP 6261 – Information Theory* (Sem 2)

Students who are yet to complete both core courses must complete:

- ENGN 8535 (Engineering Data Analytics) (Sem 1 2021);
and either
- ENGN 6528 (Computer Vision) (Sem 1, 2021) or
- COMP 6261 (Information Theory) (Sem 2, 2021).

Students who require only ENGN 8534 may complete any of the three replacement courses. 

Students who require only ENGN 8637 must complete either ENGN 8535 or ENGN 6528, noting that students who have successfully completed ENGN 8534 cannot receive credit for both ENGN 8534 and COMP 6261.
 

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Major in Mechanical & Material Systems (MMSY)

The teach-out program for the MMSY consists of three of the current compulsory courses (ENGN 3601, ENGN 3331 and 4212), a one-for-one replacement (ENGN 4810 to replace ENGN 4027). It also contains two courses commonly found in mechanical engineering programs (i.e. control systems and fluid mechanics - see note below).

Original courses (as per Major requirements)

New/replacement courses (from 2021 onwards)

ENGN 2217 - Mechanic Systems and Design

ENGN 2217 - Mechanic Systems and Design - No Change
 

ENGN 2222 – Engineering Thermodynamics

ENGN 2222 – Engineering Thermodynamics - No Change

ENGN 3331 – System Dynamics

ENGN 3331 – System Dynamics (Sem1) - No change

ENGN 3601 – Engineering Materials

ENGN 3601 – Engineering Materials (Sem 1) - No change

ENGN 4027 – Sustainable Nanomaterials (S1)

ENGN 4810 – Nanotechnology & Applications (Sem 2) - Direct Replacement for ENGN 4027.

ENGN 4212 – Manufacturing Technologies

ENGN 4212 – Manufacturing Technologies (Sem 2) - No change

ENGN 4511 – Composite Materials (S2)

^ENGN 3224 – Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer (Sem 1) - Option 1 for ENGN 4511/4615 

ENGN 4615 – Finite Element Analysis (S2)

#ENGN 3223 – Control Systems (Sem 2) - Option 2 for ENGN 4511/4615 

- Students who require only ENGN 4511 may choose to complete either ENGN 3223 or ENGN 3224. 
- Students who require only ENGN 4516 may also choose to complete either ENGN 3223 or ENGN 3224. 

However, it is important to note that ENGN 3223 or ENGN 3224 cannot be double counted to replace both ENGN 4511 and ENGN 4615 in your MMYS Major. To remove any doubt, if you still have ENGN 4511 and ENGN4615 to complete (as per the old rules), you will need to complete both ENGN 3223 and ENGN 3224 to ensure that you have completed the required 48 units of coursework for the Major. 


Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Major in Biomedical Systems (BMSY)

The teach-out program for the BMSY involves six of the current compulsory courses (BIOL 1004, plus ENGN 2217, 2222, 3820, 4810, and 4820). It also contains two courses commonly found in biomedical engineering (control systems and fluid mechanics – see note below).

Original courses (as per Major requirements)

New/replacement courses (from 2021 onwards)

BIOL 1004 – Bio 2: Molecular & Cellular Biology

BIOL 1004 – Bio 2: Molecular & Cellular Biology (Sem 2) - No Change

ENGN 2217 - Mechanic Systems and Design

ENGN 2217 - Mechanic Systems and Design - No change

ENGN 2222 – Engineering Thermodynamics

ENGN 2222 – Engineering Thermodynamics - No change

ENGN3810/ ENGN 4811 – Biomechanics & Biomaterials (S1)

#ENGN 3223 – Control Systems (Sem 2) - Option 1 for ENGN 3810/4811 or ENGN 4821

ENGN 3820 – Biomedical Imaging

ENGN 3820 – Biomedical Imaging (Sem 2) - No Change

ENGN 4810 – Nanotechnology & Applications

ENGN 4810 – Nanotechnology & Applications (Sem 2) - No Change

ENGN 4820 – BioMEMS & BioNEMS

ENGN 4820 – BioMEMS & BioNEMS (Sem 2) - No Change

ENGN4821 - Biomedical Signal Processing (Not planned to be offered until 2022)

^ENGN 3224 – Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer (Sem 1) - Option 2 for ENGN 3810/4811 or ENGN 4821.

- Students who require only ENGN 3810/4811 may choose to complete either ENGN 3223 or ENGN 3224. 
- Students who require only ENGN 4821 may also choose to complete either ENGN 3223 or ENGN 3224. 

However, it is important to note that ENGN 3223 or ENGN 3224 cannot be double counted to replace both ENGN 3810/4811 and ENGN 4821 in your BMYS Major. To remove any doubt, if you still have ENGN3810/4811 and ENGN4821 to complete (as per the old rules), you will need to complete both ENGN 3223 and ENGN 3224 to ensure that you have completed the required 48 units of coursework for the Major. 

#ENGN 3223 – Control Systems

ENGN 3223 will be modified to have application streams appropriate to the different majors.  Specifically, examples and exercises are readily available across electrical, chemical, mechanical, and biological systems.

^ENGN3224 – Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer

ENGN 3224 will be augmented with a suite of alternate lectures in the last two weeks of semester to provide information on discipline-specific topics such as biomedical surfaces and their lubrication and application in joints.
