Please note: This course 22228VIC will expire on 31 December 2017 and a new course will be available from 1 January 2018. Students can continue to make applications for the March 2018 intake, it is anticipated that the new course will take approximately two years to complete. Swinburne will provide updated information about the new course once it becomes available.
The Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology is perfect for those interested in paraprofessional positions and careers, such as technical support or technical officer roles with councils, utilities or in construction engineering on civil projects.
This course is delivered in a combination of engaging face-to-face classes, workshops, tutorials, lectures, and online activities. Major study areas include applying electro-technology principles in engineering, computer-aided drafting, construction principles, managing projects, structural analysis, surveying in civil engineering and environmental aspects in engineering.
Swinburne also offers this qualification with specialisation in mechanical units or in robotics and mechatronics units.
This course is based at Hawthorn with some workshop components delivered at Wantirna.
