Summary Off-campus students are important to the Deakin School of Engineering and Technology – in 2003, 47.5 % of all enrolments in the main engineering and technology Bachelor courses were off-campus students. In 2005, the School will be compelled, for professional accreditation, to introduce annual two-week mandatory residential sessions into its engineering and technology courses. In 2004, prior to its implementation, the impacts of the introduction of a mandatory on-campus residential element into engineering and technology courses were unknown. This research project sought to understand these impacts, so that strategies could be developed to minimise the likely impact of these changes. In engineering, off-campus study is an essential element of access to education for those in remote locations and/or seeking to upgrade their qualifications whilst employed. There was very little support from any students (on- or offcampus) for the introduction of residential sessions. The School should expect that the introduction of mandatory residential sessions will reduce the number of off-campus students enrolling to study engineering and technology.
