Courses requiring permission to enrol

Courses marked with an asterisk (*) above require permission to enrol.

  • CEED/Placement project courses require confirmation of an industry project and academic project supervision. When these are confirmed, the academic supervisor and/or course coordinator will contact the ITEE coursework studies office and ask that you be permitted to enrol.
  • Other restricted courses - single semester offerings or larger than normal projects (e.g. #8) - are only available in exceptional circumstances. Enrolment will not be permitted until a project is allocated and the supervisor has agreed that the project is suitable for such enrolment. The ITEE coursework studies office will permit enrolment when you are signed-up to a suitable project in the project database and/or the academic supervisor or course coordinator has approved that you be permitted to enrol.
