Registration for the practical component is done at Unisa. The Chemical Engineering practical courses must be done at Unisa Florida laboratories, Durban University of Technology or Cape University of Technology as these institutions offer the same courses. If the student decides to do the practical component at DUT or CPUT, the student must register for the module at Unisa and indicate in Assignment 1, where s/he wishes to do the practical module. Unisa will make the necessary arrangements, and the practical dates will be communicated to the student. Both the theoretical and the practical component of the subject must be passed before credit for the subject can be obtained. The practical component must be done simultaneously or after the theoretical component. Modules can be completed concurrently or in different years. Access to a personal computer is compulsory for the practical. All study materials and examination papers are available only in English. Work integrated learning is a compulsory component towards the completion of this qualification. Students must complete (CEP101E or CEP2602) and (CEP201E or CEP3602). Students may do CEP101E and CEP201E sequentially (i.e. CEP201E after CEP101E) or simultaneously by registering for both modules in the same year. A student may only select CEP101E and CEP201E if s/he has a placement. CEP2602 and CEP3602 are modules which are offered at the Florida campus only and require the subject to be present on campus daily for a 15 week term. Students who have done CEM2601 do not need to do CHF1501, students who have done CPI2601 do not need to do CHF2601. Students who have done CEM311A do not need to do CES2601.
This qualification will be presented using both online and distance learning modes.

How to choose your modules

Each Unisa qualification is structured in such a way that you need to pass a certain number of modules and NQF level credits 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.
