Course description

52884WA Advanced Diploma of Mechanical Engineering Technology

This program aims to impart the necessary mechanical engineering skills, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Five threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field of mechanical engineering. These threads comprise of fundamentals of mechanical engineering technologies, applications of mechanical engineering technologies, energy systems, industrial automation, and management. Due to the global nature of mechanical engineering today, students are exposed to international standards.

Who should attend?

Student applications are considered on a case-by-case basis and the following minimum entry requirements are to be strictly adhered to:

  • Applicants must have at least a Year 12 or Cert III trade qualification or equivalent in a related field; AND
  • They must have at least 2 years’ work experience in a related field OR
  • At least 4 years’ work experience in a related field – subject to acceptance of an application for Credit to Entry ** AND
  • Satisfactory English language proficiency at an English pass level in a Senior Certificate of Education or equivalent; OR
  • A specified level of achievement in a recognized English language test such as: IELTS (or equivalent) at a score of at least 5.5 (with no individual band score less than 5.0); or equivalent; OR
  • Satisfactory completion of another course offered by EIT, or by another tertiary institution, in English.
