This graduate certificate will equip you with communication (oral and written) skills needed to investigate, analyse and present technical ideas, information and solutions on issues in relation to system safety and management in a professional, independent and organised manner within the engineering domain.
Upon completion of this graduate certificate, graduates will be able to identify, critically analyse and creatively solve intellectually complex, specialised professional engineering problems in safety systems, process safety, safety lifecycle, risk reduction, asset management, safety management and asset integrity. You will have an in-depth understanding of synthesis and design in specialist bodies of knowledge across a multitude of tools and techniques required to implement a Safety Management System (SMS).
Please see our Graduate Certificate in Safety, Risk and Reliability Engineering as an alternative. This course is available and the next intake date is shown on the linked page.
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 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 (Safety, Risk and Reliability)
The course learning outcomes will be assessed with formative and summative assessments. These formal and informal assessment methods include quizzes, invigilated tests, written research reports, remote-lab practicals, case studies and portfolios.

Applicants are required to:
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) ***
**Congruent field of practice for GCSSM means any recognised undergraduate degree in engineering or engineering science degree.
**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.

Students who have a Graduate Certificate in System Safety Engineering and Management can enhance their ability and knowledge in the engineering – safety, risk and reliability field, enabling them to gain and hold employment.
Graduates will be able to work in a wide range engineering sector in mid-career, technical management 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.
We are one of the only institutes in the world specializing in engineering.
