A.3.7 Progression and Classification

A.3.7.1 Progress through the programme

Please complete a flow diagram showing the last three complete cohorts through the system and a separate sheet for the last three intake years if these are different. Show clearly the progress of students through the programme for each option:

  1. direct entrants

  2. re-sit numbers from previous years

  3. failures (classified, if possible as for academic or non academic reasons)

(see student progress diagram)

A.3.7.2 Methods of Assessment

The qualifying course (of one academic year) comprising mandatory course units has to be completed with a minimum GPA of 2.00. Then the final course of three academic years duration comprising six semesters and a specified period of industrial training have to be successfully completed with a minimum GPA of 2.00.

Normally, a student has to obtain a grade of ‘C’ (50%) or above in order to earn credits in a course unit. However, a student who satisfies the GPA requirement is allowed to earn credits in a limited number of course units with grades of ‘C-’, ‘D+’, or ‘D’. A student who has failed to secure a grade of ‘C’ or above in a course unit is allowed to repeat the course unit in a subsequent semester in which the course unit is offered. The maximum grade accruing to a student repeating a course unit is a grade ‘C’.

A student may offer an alternative elective in place of a technical/general elective for which he/she has failed to secure a passing grade. However, the grades obtained by the student in all electives are included in his/her academic transcript. The GPA is calculated considering the grades and credits of the course units claimed by the student for his degree which have been offered in the Final Course.

Progression from one year to the next is controlled by pre-requisites. Where a prerequisite course unit or course units are prescribed for any course unit of the Final Course in Engineering, a student is permitted to follow that course unit only if he/she has attained the minimum requirement for the prerequisite course unit or course units.

A student has to obtain a grade of ‘C’ (50%) or above in order to earn credits in a course unit. However, a student who satisfies the GPA requirement is allowed to earn credits in a limited number of course units with grades of ‘C-’, ‘D+’, or ‘D’, provided that the grade in any of the course units is not below a D and the cumulative credit deficit (CCD) does not exceed 12.

CCD = cidi for all course units with grade of D+, D or C-.. ci is the credit of the ith course and di is the deficit weighting defined as 1 for a D, 2/3 for D+ and ½ for a C-.

The requirements for obtaining the BScEng degree with Class Honours are as follows:

i. Successful completion of the Qualifying Course, Final Course, and the mandatory training programmes of the Faculty within the stipulated period.

ii. A minimum total of 150 credits including credits for the Qualifying Course and Industrial Training component.

  1. A GPA level for the Final Course which is required for the award of Class Honours.

Class honours are awarded on the basis of Grade Point Average (GPA) of the Final Course. All core and technical elective course units of the Final Course including projects offered by a candidate (i.e. courses taken during second, third and fourth year of the academic programme) are treated with equal weighting in GPA calculations. No weighting is assigned in GPA calculations for Qualifying Course which is offered in the first year of the degree programme, as well as for general electives and industrial training in the Final Course. However, satisfactory completion of these components is required to satisfy eligibility for award of BScEng degree.

Grade point averages for the award of class honours are as follows:

First Class Honours GPA ≥ 3.70

Second Class Honours (Upper Division) 3.30 ≤ GPA < 3.70

Second Class Honours (Lower Division) 2.70 ≤ GPA < 3.30

Third Class Honours 2.00 ≤ GPA < 2.70
