The Diploma in Engineering is designed to engage students in, and further prepare students for, tertiary study in Engineering / Engineering Science and in so doing address any perceived deficiencies in the students’ mathematical and physics knowledge and skills. The Diploma presents students with units from the first year of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) or Bachelor of Engineering Science degree and aims to produce students who are fully prepared for study beyond the first year of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Engineering Science degree. It is completed in a smaller, more supportive learning environment than usually found in first year undergraduate programs, is designed to develop students to have greater ability in self-directed study and have the self-esteem that comes from prior achievement in a tertiary environment. The inclusion of additional preparatory units is designed to assist students in the transition to study at University level.
