At EIT we have a range of postgraduate engineering education options available. If you meet Master’s-level entry requirements*, you have the choice of applying for a Graduate Certificate (6 months – 4 units), a Graduate Diploma (12 months – 8 units), or a Master’s degree (2 years).
Whichever option you choose, these course types are all Australian-accredited postgraduate qualifications (some of our Master’s degrees are also internationally recognized).
If you are looking to progress your career with a shorter engineering qualification, our Graduate Certificate (6 months – 4 units) or Graduate Diploma (12 months – 8 units) qualifications are a great choice. These courses will introduce students to advanced and complex problems of the relevant discipline. The units are drawn from the relevant Master’s degree program.
Full credit into EIT Master’s Degree programs is available for those wishing to proceed. If you successfully complete one of our Graduate Certificates or Graduate Diplomas, you will receive full credit for the units you’ve completed should you choose to study the relevant discipline* Master’s degree afterward.
We deliver graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, master’s degrees, and a doctor of engineering. These program types have been designed to suit the needs of engineers and aspiring engineers from varied backgrounds.
All applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions team, and meeting the minimum admission criteria does not guarantee entry to our programs. For the most detailed description of the entry criteria please refer to the relevant course page, and please feel free to contact our Course Advisors should you need any clarification.
