About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The aim of the Graduate Diploma in Engineering Technology with strands is to create a set of multi-disciplinary engineering technology professionals who will have the ability to undertake the high-level design, specification and project management within a specific selection of subject or discipline areas. In addition, the Graduate Diploma will provide technology professionals with multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge in one of the many disciplines by way of strands in: Mechanical, Mechatronics, Power, Water and Water Waste, and Roading / Transportation.
Each strand will have a range of knowledge which will enable graduates to provide optimal design solutions by being able to compare and evaluate the differing alternatives provided by, and within, each strand. Employers will gain graduates seeking an applied engineering understanding of the practical application of the content matter of the strand or discipline, and the technical skills to specify and manage projects.
