Additional Information

Thesis Arrangements

  • MMAN4010 and MMAN4020 must be undertaken in two consecutive semesters which are the final two semesters of candidature.
  • A student must not be enrolled in more than 24 units of credit in any semester involving MMAN4010 and MMAN4020.
  • A single thesis project is commenced in MMAN4010 and completed in MMAN4020. MMAN4020 carries the mark for the thesis project.
  • MMAN4010 is a graded course, carrying 25% of the total thesis mark (for Honours weighting purposes). If a student receives a failure (FL) in MMAN4010, a student cannot proceed with MMAN4020, and must reattempt MMAN4010.
  • If the project is abandoned during MMAN4020, or if MMAN4020 is failed, a completely new topic must be chosen and the student must enrol again in both MMAN4010 and MMAN4020. (For BE/MBiomedE students, read BIOM5001 instead of MMAN4010 and BIOM5003 instead of MMAN4020).
