You can choose electives from a wide range of undergraduate courses offered at UNSW Engineering. This includes our Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) program as a discipline elective (courses: ENGG2600ENGG3600ENGG4600). Get involved in cutting-edge research and earn credit for project-based learning.  

Engineering students, who have completed the relevant amount of credit and ENGG1000 can apply to start in T1 each year. The VIP course is 6 UoC spread over three terms (2 UoC per term), Students can enrol for up to 20 UoC per term if they wish without having to apply for overload approval. Students can only apply for one project at a time and will be accepted into a project upon approval from the lead academic. 

Visit our ChallENG Program website for more information on how to apply.
