The undergraduate certificate in Engineering develops your practical skills and improves your mathematical understanding. You will complete a selection of four courses, focusing on engineering design, computing, maths, and an elective in a chosen area of Engineering. These courses introduce you to some of the fundamental elements of Engineering practice, and equip you to apply that knowledge and skills to basic engineering problems.
This qualification will suit those looking for a shorter qualification that will equip them with practical skills, or who are looking for an alternative pathway to a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours).
The certificate is equivalent to two terms of study (4 courses) in an undergraduate degree. On successful completion of the certificate, you can transfer your completed courses and continue your studies in the Bachelor of Engineering, subject to meeting the articulation requirements.
