Your engineering career path starts here.

These high level qualifications will give you the specialised technical skills and knowledge to launch your engineering career.

Engineers are the bedrock of a technological society. All the technology we take for granted today, satellites, aircraft, racing cars, mobile phones, renewable energy, hydro-power has been engineered by engineers.

Engineering provides solutions to problems, how to send and land probes on other planets, clean polluted water supplies, extract minerals, and prevent radiation from leaking from a nuclear reactor.

These solutions involve the use of science, physics, mathematics, design, materials technology, all subject areas that an engineer needs to know.

We are a developed technological connected society due to engineering.

Our courses prepare you for entering into this exciting creative world.

Please note our Engineering Qualifications are of a para-professional level and not a trade qualification.


MEM60112 - Advanced Diploma of Engineering

The Advanced Diploma of Engineering is a course that is well-recognised by industry in Australia. It prepares students to enter Industry as para-professional engineers, and there is significant unmet demand for Engineers at this level in Industry. The subjects in the Advanced Diploma of Engineering have been carefully selected to ensure that the skills and knowledge being learned is current and relevant to the demands of industry. Given the skills requirements for this course, our full-time course is facilitated face to face, over 2 years, by our highly skilled lecturers. This ensures that students have the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcomes from their studies. It gives our students the leading edge to gain employment within the industry. And to help our students achieve optimum outcomes, AUS-IAS offers additional tutorial time for those who would like additional assistance with their studies.
