    # Students who have not completed Mathematical Methods (or equivalent), will be required to undertake the unit SIT190 in the first trimester of their Engineering course.

    + Students enrolled online for these units are required to attend campus mode conducted activities during the corresponding Intensive Activities in a trimester. Attendance at campus mode activities is linked to assessment requirements within the Engineering programs, failure to attend will result in not meeting the hurdle requirement of the respective assessment. Thus, a fail grade shall be awarded for the respective affected unit(s) for that particular trimester.
