About this course

Design a future for yourself - and the world

Engineering is a future-focused industry where professionals are always in demand. Looking to the future, strong growth is expected in this sector with job opportunities predicted to increase by 15% in an already underserviced industry. The world needs people who can solve problems, challenge different ways of thinking and conceptualise alternative approaches. Working in engineering, you'll use your analytical skills and knowledge of different principles, technologies and materials to design new solutions to complex problems. With a current shortage of graduates in this industry, there's never been a better time to pursue a career in engineering.

Gain essential engineering skills

This intensive course covers all the basics in two streams, providing a perfect starting point for your engineering, drafting or design career.

The Civil Engineering Design stream will prepare you for a career alongside civil and structural engineers designing and constructing buildings, bridges, railways, roads and other projects.

If you choose Mechatronic Engineering Design, you'll be prepared to for a career assisting senior designers, production supervisors and engineers with the design, development, manufacture, installation, operation and management of machines, mechanical and mechatronic systems and robotic devices, among others.

Career pathways

Melbourne Polytechnic's Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology is a widely-recognised qualification within the engineering sector. It's a great entry point to the industry or a foundation for further studies. You'll graduate ready to work as a computer aided design (CAD) draftsperson, engineering assistant, assistant project manager or construction engineer, construction materials lab technician or automated systems worker, depending on your stream. You may work in a range of industries, including building construction, steel fabrication, machinery handling or food and beverage production.

Credit for prior study or work

You can seek Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) where your work experience or qualifications of an advanced and related nature have been undertaken. RPL is individually assessed based on evidence submitted by the student to the teaching department. Applications for RPL will be assessed by relevant Melbourne Polytechnic trainers, academics and where appropriate, industry experts.
