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.

We will review your application and may recommend pre-program studies if required.

Hear from our students

  One of the best on-line course that I had completed. It is very relevant to my current work and will definitely elevate my rank.  
  My background is Electronics Engineering so I enjoyed all the medical modules especially the anatomy and physiology because it’s all new to me.  
  The course has tried to bring a broad perspective of biomedical engineering into one platter, which is commendable. Also course coordinator was very supportive throughout the course, she did an excellent job. Additionally, all the instructors did a splendid job.
