This program aims to impart the necessary mechanical engineering skills, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Five threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field of mechanical engineering. These threads comprise of fundamentals of mechanical engineering technologies, applications of mechanical engineering technologies, energy systems, industrial automation, and management. Due to the global nature of mechanical engineering today, students are exposed to international standards.
• Skills in the latest mechanical engineering technologies
• Practical guidance from experts in the field
• Global networking contacts in the industry
• A world class Advanced Diploma of Mechanical Engineering Technology (provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia)
The participants emerge from the course able to demonstrate specialized and integrated technical and theoretical knowledge, with considerable depth, in subject matter related to mechanical engineering.
Graduates will have the knowledge and skills to contribute to the capacity of mechanical engineering and related industries to maintain their competitiveness in a global marketplace through the application of latest technologies, value adding to existing products, process and services and the development of new, sustainable and innovative solutions.
This practical program avoids too much emphasis on theory. The lecturers presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers who have worked in the mechanical engineering industry. The delivery methodology — live and interactive webinars with the use of state-of-the-art technologies such as remote and virtual laboratories and simulation software — ensures you graduate with cutting-edge skills that are valued by employers around the world.
The program is composed of 17 modules and 2 units of competency. These modules cover a range of aspects to provide you with maximum practical coverage in the field of mechanical engineering.
