Graduate Certificate in Research Fundamentals and Data Analysis

Course Overview

GCDA

This graduate certificate will equip you with communication (oral and written) skills to investigate, analyze and present technical ideas, information and solutions on engineering problems and projects in a professional, independent and organized manner, individually and in teams, within the engineering domain.

Upon completion of this graduate certificate, graduates will be able to research, identify, critically analyze and creatively propose solutions to solve intellectually complex, specialised engineering problems individually or in groups, underpinned by critical analysis, innovation, evaluation, synthesis, accountability and sound engineering judgement of solutions relevant to the engineering domain. You will use engineering practices and key research methodology to evaluate problems, use appropriate data acquisition and analysis to propose novel solutions to engineering problems.

    Program Details

    The program is delivered using a wide range of learning activities such as live webinars, written assignments, and remote laboratories. These experiences aim to get the students interacting via technology-based learning experiences that highlight shared skills and knowledge derived from the many cultural and technical contexts in which the students are working.

    You must complete 20 credit points comprising four core units. There are no electives in this program. The program duration is six months across one semester, and you will study 4 units per term. For further study, graduates may consider EIT’s Doctor of Engineering program.

    Unit Code Subjects Credit Points
    DENG601 Engineering Practice and Key Research Methodology 4
    DENG602 Technology Evaluation and Intellectual Property 4
    DENG604 Data Acquisition 4
    DENG801 Advanced Data Analysis 8
    • Upon completion of this graduate certificate, graduates will have communication (oral and written) skills to investigate, analyse and present technical ideas, information and solutions on engineering problems and projects in a professional, independent and organised manner, individually and in teams, within the engineering domain.
    • Graduates of this program will be able to research, identify, critically analyse and creatively propose solutions to solve intellectually complex, specialised engineering problems individually or in groups, underpinned by critical analysis, innovation, evaluation, synthesis, accountability and sound engineering judgement of solutions relevant to the engineering domain.
    • The graduates will use engineering practices and key research methodology to evaluate problems, use appropriate data acquisition and analysis to propose novel solutions to engineering problems.

    Applicants are required to: 

    • Hold a recognized bachelor degree (or above) in engineering or science,
    • 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-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 specialization 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 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. All documents submitted as part of your application must be certified.

    **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.

    Students who have a Graduate Certificate in Research Fundamentals and Data Analysis can enhance their ability and knowledge in research and data analysis in any engineering field, enabling them to advance their employment.

    Graduates will be able to work in a wide range of engineering industries in technical management, research and development, data analysis or senior level role.

    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.

      The delivery methodology and the information available in the e-library can’t be beaten. The other important aspect of online education is recorded lectures. You can review the tutorial and lessons on repeat when you need to understand the concept.

      What I liked most about the course and EIT is the flexibility is offered regarding education. It gave me the opportunity to study and work full-time.  
    C Groenewald, South Africa
      I enjoyed interacting with students all around the world, and seeing how the principles I have learned applies to them as well.  
    S Zeelie, South Africa
      My line of work requires me travel quite often. I could not attend every class due to my remote locations, but still I could recap and stay on top of the study material thanks to the recordings. Also, all the Instructors were world class.
