MC-IS, 864AL, 864BB Master of Information Systems

There is an application process for this subject:

Students who have successfully completed no fewer than 50 points of coursework at the University of Melbourne in one of the prerequisite Master degree courses and achieved a minimum H2B average will be able to access University-sourced internships and can apply for these internships through a competitive process.

Students who do not meet these criteria may source their own internship, and apply to have it approved by the ENGR90033 subject coordinator by contacting eng-placements@unimelb.edu.au.

An application for a student-sourced internship must be made at least two weeks before the teaching period commencement date.

Due to workload commitments, it is very strongly recommended that students restrict their enrolment to 37.5 points in total during the semester, if enrolled in ENGR90033 in Semesters 1 or 2.

Students are not able to enrol in a 25 point industry based final year project subject concurrently with ENGR90033, due to the workload commitment associated with each subject.

Students are not able to enrol in ENGR90027 Engineering Project, CHEN90022 Chemical Engineering Design Project or BIEN90002 Biochemical Engineering Design project concurrently with ENGR90033 due to the workload commitment involved in each subject.
