As a result of your studies in this associate degree, you will be able to use descriptive, formula-based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the practice area.
You will have a procedural-level understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin your study, and will develop in-depth practical knowledge and skills within specialist sub-disciplines.
You'll be able to apply established technical and practical tools, techniques and methods to solve engineering problems, and use systematic synthesis and design processes to manage them.
You will participate in your learning experience through:
- lectures and tutorials
- practicals and laboratory exercises based on industry examples
- simulated work and industry-related projects
- face to face and computer-based learning
- hands-on practice
- laboratory exercises, project-based learning, research and presentations.
Assessment may include practical assessments, online and written assessments, presentations, team or individual projects, and assignments, reports or journals. The training that you receive will be highly practical oriented including labs, workshop and projects and closely simulated to an Industry 4.0 manufacturing environment.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
