What will I be doing in intensives?
The on-campus activities you'll complete 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 engineering precinct 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.
On-campus attendance dates
There are no intensive week activities scheduled for 2021 due to difficulties students may have attending on-campus at this time. Alternative learning activities have been incorporated into the units.
There are free Deakin intercampus buses running all day between the Geelong Waterfront Campus and the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus so you can stay in the Geelong CBD or choose to stay closer to campus in Waurn Ponds.
There are also local buses from the Geelong CBD requiring a Myki card. Visit the PTV website for more information.
The closest accommodation options are in Waurn Ponds.
