About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The aim of the Graduate Diploma in Engineering is to create a set of multi-disciplinary technology professionals who have the ability to undertake the high-level design, specification and project management within a specific selection of subject areas. In addition, the Graduate Diploma will provide technology professionals with multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge covering a number of strands including Mechatronics, Electronics, Power, Mechanical, and Civil. This range of knowledge will enable graduates to provide optimal design solutions by being able to compare and evaluate the differing alternatives provided by, and within, each discipline area. They will have an understanding of the practical application of each discipline and the technical skills to specify and manage projects. The Graduate Diploma in Engineering aims to cater for engineering graduates and working engineering professionals wishing to gain further specialist knowledge in a discipline area. The Graduate Diploma aims to cater for both full and part time students primarily but not exclusively from the Auckland region and abroad, including: * Engineering professionals currently employed with relevant industry experience wishing to upskill in a further engineering specialisation: broaden their engineering knowledge; update their current knowledge base * Degree graduates - (domestic and international) wishing to supplement their previous area of study.
