Entry requirements

For international students

This advanced diploma is an accelerated, practical, work-oriented program. It is designed for engineers and technicians who have some background in the field. This includes those who have technical or ‘trade’ qualifications who want to move to the next career step, those with substantial relevant work experience who need to formalize and enhance their achievements, and those with higher-level qualifications in a related field who wish to develop specialist knowledge.

This means you are required to have either a trade certificate (Certificate 3) or equivalent, or at least three years of work experience within a relevant job and industry to gain entrance. You may also have a higher level of qualification in a corresponding field and be looking to gain further practical knowledge.

Practical work experience in related areas of engineering would help enormously. It would not be suitable for a student with no relevant work experience.
