What will I be doing in the intensive week?
The on-campus activities you'll complete during the intensive week are linked to assessment requirements for each unit within Deakin's engineering programs.
You'll normally complete practical activities or laboratory investigations for assessment tasks. You may also visit industry facilities or engage with industry guest speakers.
You'll be using state-of-the-art engineering facilities within Deakin’s Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET) and associated laboratories.
You'll also have the opportunity to network with other Cloud Campus students, as well as on-campus students and engineering academics.

The above intensive week dates are subject to change. At this stage we do not have set dates for 2020, however, the above dates can be used as a general guide for other years.
It is important to note that you will not necessarily be required on-campus for the full week as it will depend on the units you are enrolled in.
* ‘Level’ refers to the year in your degree you are enrolled in, e.g. if you are a full-time student enrolled in third-year units you will be attending the on-campus dates for Level 3. This will differ for part-time students and will depend on the units you are completing each trimester.
