Course Overview

The Graduate Certificate in Civil Engineering (Structural Analysis and Design) is a postgraduate qualification course that includes masters level units as part of the program. This Graduate Certificate will provide you with an opportunity to broaden and deepen your knowledge in the area of structural analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel.

It offers an opportunity for industry professionals in the field to enhance their structural analysis skills without having to complete a full Master’s degree.

Program Details

Advanced structural analysis is a key area of focus for engineers dealing with the design and construction of complex structures. The Graduate Certificate in Civil Engineering (Structural Analysis and Design) covers knowledge and skills needed in structural design of various construction materials covering mainly reinforced concrete, steel, and their composites.   

The learning outcomes of the course are designed to equip graduates with the professional engineering skills and knowledge required to analyze and solve complex engineering problems. 

You must complete 12 credit points comprising four core units. There are no electives in this program. The program duration is six months across two terms, and you will study two units per term. For further study, graduates may consider EIT’s Master of Engineering (Civil: Structural).

Unit Code Subjects Credit Points
MCS501 Structural Analysis 3
MCS502 Advanced Engineering Materials 3
MCS503 Structural Design Part 1 – Advanced Topics on Reinforced Concrete Design 3
MCS506 Structural Design Part 2 – Advanced Topics on Steel Design 3

Applicants are required to:

  • Hold a recognized bachelor degree (or above) in engineering or science in a congruent field of practice*,
  • Have completed the equivalent of first-year Bachelor level mathematics, or are able to demonstrate recognized relevant work experience.
  • Have an appropriate level of English Language Proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education, or an IELTS score of 6.0 (with no individual band less than 6.0)**, or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-congruent engineering field are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to the entry requirements (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialisation and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee).

Applicants who do not hold a recognized bachelor’s degree are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to this qualification. A minimum of an Australian Advanced Diploma (or equivalent) in Engineering and 5 years of technical work experience at a technologist level or above in a relevant engineering field is required for an application to be considered (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialization and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee) ***

Please note:

  1. All applicants must have evidence of engineering exposure in their degree and/or work experience
  2. All applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
  3. Please check the Documentation Guidelines for your application.

*Congruent field of practice means one of the following with adequate Civil Engineering content (fields not listed below to be considered by the Dean and the Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis):

  • Civil Engineering
  • Construction Engineering
  • Transport Engineering
  • Urban Engineering
  • Material Systems
  • Project Engineering

**Applicants may have a maximum of one individual band of 5.5 and be granted entry subject to the provision of English language support by EIT

*** Applicants who enter and complete this qualification without holding a prior Bachelor’s Degree and go on to complete an EIT Master’s Degree may not be eligible for Engineers Australia recognition. However, students can lodge a personal application with Engineers Australia to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Like all Australian higher education providers and universities, EIT programs are accredited by the exacting standards of the Australian Government’s Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). This Graduate Certificate is a formally recognized qualification under the Australian Qualifications Framework.

Find out more about country-specific accreditation and professional recognition.

This course is classified as Level 8 under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

As a graduate from this course, you have increased employability in the areas of structural engineering, construction engineering and civil engineering.  

Our graduate certificates take six months to complete. We deliver our online graduate certificates on a part-time intensive basis. Part-time Students are expected to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week per unit learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending tutorials.

Applications are open for both our upcoming intakes. You must submit your application at least four weeks prior to the start date to be considered for your desired intake.

A census date is the date at which an enrolment is considered to be final. Any withdrawal you make after the study period census date will incur an academic penalty (for example, a fail grade) and a financial penalty (for example, no refund of your student contribution or tuition fees). See our current census dates.

Any student has a right to appeal a decision of the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) or any member of the institute’s staff. EIT has a comprehensive Policy on Appeals and Grievances to assist students.
