The course articulates with The Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Electronics) and the Master of Engineering (Electronics), and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the three awards.
The Faculty Board may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
The Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Electronics) is not available to graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering (Computer and Electronic), Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics), Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics), or equivalent undergraduate courses from other tertiary institutions. Graduates of these degrees or similar may apply for admission to the Master of Engineering (Electronics).
The course has been designed to provide graduates with:
- a foundation in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of electronic engineering systems
- an awareness of social, economic, cultural and environmental aspects of electronic engineering
- an ability to critically analyse and evaluate information and solve problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a commitment to them
- the ability to work and interact professionally as an individual and as a member of multi-disciplinary teams
- an understanding of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so
- preparation for future management roles as professional engineers.
The course provides the foundations that will underpin ongoing professional development, preparing graduates for further study or for a career in an engineering related field or in other areas where the range of skills and knowledge acquired is needed or desirable.
On completion of the award, students will be able to:
- competently use professional skills and knowledge in the systematic development of complex electronic engineering systems
- apply their skills and knowledge in a professionally responsible manner
- communicate effectively with other engineers and the wider global community using a wide range of communication technologies
- work professionally as an individual and in a team
- understand and describe the processes through which current knowledge was developed
- develop engineering solutions appropriate to the social, political, international, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied
- engage in the process of continuing learning needed to retain the necessary level of professional skills and knowledge in the area of electronic engineering
- contribute successfully to project management.
