UNISA National Diploma: Engineering: Civil Course, Module and Curriculum



UNISA National Diploma: Engineering: Civil Course, Module and Curriculum

Qualification code: NDECI
NQF level: 6
Total credits: 360
Rules:
Work-integrated learning is a compulsory component towards the completion of this qualification. Students must complete PEC2601 or PEC2602 and PEC301C or PEC3602.Students may do PEC2601and PEC301C sequentially (i.e. PEC301C after PEC2601} or simultaneously by registering for both modules in the same year. A student may only select for PEC2601and PEC301C if s/he has a placement. PEC2602 and PEC3602 are modules which are offered at specific locations which may require the student to relocate for the duration of the project.
This qualification will be presented using both online and distance learning modes.

Who can register?

Successful applicants and re-registering students must register to study through Unisa in 2016. Applicants can only begin the registration process if they have received an official approval of their application from Unisa. Re-registering students can begin the registration process after receiving their registration details from Unisa. Should you wish to change to an alternative qualification, please apply for the alternative qualification during the next application period.



How to choose your modules

Each Unisa qualification is structured in such a way that you need to pass a certain number of modules within a certain amount of time in order to graduate. You must pass a minimum number of credits / modules annually so that you are able to re-register and continue with your qualification:



  • At least 36 NQF credits (3 modules of 12 credits each) in your first year of study;
  • At least 48 NQF credits (4 modules of 12 credits each) in your second or further years of study.

You may not register for more than the allowed maximum number of credits / modules per semester:

  • At least 60 NQF credits (5 modules of 12 credits each) in a semester;
  • At least 120 NQF credits (10 modules of 12 credits each) per year for year modules.

The maximum number of credits do not include supplementary and/or aegrotat examinations from a previous semester. Modules taken for non-degree/non-diploma purposes also count towards the maximum number of credits allowed.
You must take your available time into consideration when choosing your modules, as this will impact your academic performance. You need approximately:



  • 6 to 8 hours per week for semester modules;
  • 4 to 6 hours per week for year modules.
