Student safety is our priority and due to the impacts of COVID-19, our intensives and semester-long ICPUs will be delivered in an online format, primarily through Zoom video conferencing.
As with face-to-face, you will still work collaboratively in interdisciplinary groups to solve a complex problem set by an industry partner. The partner will virtually engage and provide guidance throughout the project.
For Semester 1 and 2, some optional face-to-face learning options will be available. For students unable to attend face-to-face sessions, remote learning options will be provided as an alternative.

The first step is to select a shell unit for the project through Sydney Student. If you've already enrolled you can do this by changing your units of study (go to ‘My studies’, ‘Units of study’, then ‘Change your units of study’).
Choose the shell unit for your faculty or school, and where relevant, your major(s).
Once you've successfully enrolled, we will email you with instructions on how to register for a project.
Before registering for a semester-long project, check the timetable and make sure you're available for the allocated class times. For intensive projects, you need to be available Monday to Friday on a full-time basis.
You will finalise your enrolment in the unit and select your project in Sydney Student (go to 'My studies', 'Enrolment', then 'Project registration').
Places in each project are limited so we encourage you to register early to avoid missing out. You will only see projects that are available for your enrolled shell unit and still have places available. If you can’t see a project when you register, you will need to select a different project. Project availability is subject to change.
Once you've registered for a project, you will need to upload a signed and witnessed Deed Poll to Canvas. This is a compulsory requirement of your enrolment in this unit. Make sure you consider the acknowledgments in the deed carefully before submission. You will be granted access to Canvas the week before teaching starts for your enrolled session and you will need to submit your Deed Poll before the first day of class.
