You’ll choose subjects relevant to your engineering major and undertake a real-world project to design, develop, and present a product.
This associate degree has seven majors:
- Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics
- Aerospace Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Computer and Network Engineering
- Electrical and Electronics Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Sustainable Systems Engineering
In the first year, you’ll learn fundamental principles of engineering that apply across the different major areas. At the end of the first year you’ll select the major you’ll specialise in for your second year.
If you have maintained a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher, you’ll be eligible for guaranteed entry into a degree program relevant to your major, with credit for 192 study points (equivalent to two years’ study).
This program provides a pathway into engineering and related professions that have been experiencing skills shortages for many years.
How you will learn
The degree has an active learning approach. A key emphasis of the program is its linkages to current industry needs.
The program is taught by professionals with current research and industry experience.
Learning and teaching approaches include lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, and group discussion work.
This program has a very strong Industry Advisory Committee (IAC), which links the program to industry developments. The IAC is composed of staff from local engineering organisations. It provides regular feedback on the program and the changing needs of industry.
You’ll be introduced to fundamental engineering skills including:
- use of hand and power tools
- machine processes and manufacturing
You’ll also cover materials engineering, which includes:
- plastics and adhesives
You’ll learn the processes used to construct objects from these materials and the external factors that can change the effectiveness of these materials. You’ll also develop skills in computer-aided drafting (CAD) using specialised software.
At the end of this year, you’ll choose your engineering major.
You’ll choose subjects relevant to your engineering major. All majors emphasise professional and personal development, allowing you to build skills in:
- decision making
- team leading
You’ll undertake an engineering project to design, develop, and present a product. The engineering project is carried out in conjunction with industry or simulates a real engineering environment.
Medina’s passion for maths, physics, chemistry and design made studying civil engineering an easy choice.
