Our diploma of applied technologies has four specialisations, with two available to study this year in 2022: Cloud Technologies and Civil Infrastructure.

Cloud Technologies Specialisation:

Women in STEM Cadetships and Advanced Apprenticeships Program

Our Diploma of Applied Technologies – Cloud Technologies – Online delivery has been especially developed for:

Women in STEM (as per the Women in STEM Cadetships and Advanced Apprenticeships Program) in conjunction with our industry partner Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide highly regarded, practical work experience while you study.

This AWS cloud computing course involves a paid job at Amazon Web Services (AWS) working for three days per week, while studying part time two days per week to achieve this qualification. This is a unique opportunity to combine technical and hands on training with the AWS team as you help individuals and businesses maintain their computing infrastructures and applications in the Cloud.

Cloud computing is in high demand as it is an integral part of the daily operations for almost all businesses. Learning about the applications of cloud computing as well as having hands on experience will make you a valuable candidate for technology industry jobs – including at AWS as they will recruit high performers from this course.

This course is 100% online, allowing new entrants to the IT industry, those wanting to upskill or even career changers to work and study from anywhere. When you graduate, you’ll be able to exit into industry or move on to further study.

Limited places available.

Civil Infrastructure Specialisation:

Our Diploma of Applied Technologies – Civil Infrastructure – has been designed specifically for Victorian Civil Infrastructure organisations who are participating the Victorian Big Build Initiative. It aims to enhance digital maturity and managerial capability for Victoria’s Big Build construction projects and future construction demand, creating workforce capability through work integrated learning (WIL).

Students work on a major project aligned to their business to find digital solutions to improve the processes and efficiency within their workplace.

Enrolments for this specialisation are currently closed.
