At 新蒲萄京官方载首页 the individual is important when it comes to being accepted to complete our Bachelor of Science degrees in one of four engineering sub-disciplines.
Traditionally, school graduates compound the largest cohort of Bachelor's degree students, and it is also true for 新蒲萄京官方载首页.
However, everyone’s different, so applicants with work experience, previous qualifications like certificates, diplomas and Advanced Diplomas can use their background for entry into a Bachelor's qualification.
In the case of prior education, it can potentially shorten your degree acquisition, and also assist with entry into the course of your choice.
A major reason to choose this degree is that it is accredited by Engineers Australia. This means that it is recognized in Australia and most parts of the world as a full-fledged Bachelor's degree under the Sydney Accord.
Four 新蒲萄京官方载首页 Bachelor’s programs are accredited under the Sydney Accord:
Under the Sydney Accord signatories that have full rights of participation in the Accord are:
Choosing a degree that has full recognition under one of the Engineering Accords has many benefits, including:
Students that have completed Diploma or higher level qualification (or equivalent level qualification from another country) with successful completion of all Maths subjects can also apply to complete a Bachelor's degree at 新蒲萄京官方载首页.
Relevant previous education may shorten the course duration if you previously studied a similar topic or unit.
Learning acquired through a formal learning process, such as completion of (or part of) a course at another recognized educational institution can be considered by 新蒲萄京官方载首页 once you are enrolled in a Bachelor's program.
Students are required to submit a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) application, and the onus will be on applicants to demonstrate that they have the relevant skills, knowledge and understanding, and to provide the required evidence. An RPL application is assessed by one of 新蒲萄京官方载首页’s Course Coordinators with assistance from a subject matter expert where required RPL applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
The total amount of credit granted will vary from individual to individual, based on which qualification(s) or combinations of qualification components have been successfully completed. When you receive a Letter of Offer you will be invited to submit an RPL application, the fee for this to be assessed is AU$300.
If you choose to study an Advanced Diploma course with 新蒲萄京官方载首页 and later want to progress to a Bachelors, there are many points of cross recognition.
Similarly, Undergraduate Certificates at 新蒲萄京官方载首页 cover four units from one of 新蒲萄京官方载首页’s Bachelor courses, and those units can be used as credit in a Bachelor environment since the unit has been successfully completed.
2. High school (Year 12) (or equivalent) completion
The most traditional pathway taken by many students into our bachelor degree programs. Applicants need to have completed a minimum level of education equivalent to successful completion of Australian Year 12.
For examples of the accepted upper secondary qualifications in other countries, and a guide to the minimum grades that 新蒲萄京官方载首页 will consider click here.
Another important foundation of successful engineering education is good math. This is why at 新蒲萄京官方载首页 we require a certain level of achievement in Math which will differ depending on where you studied.
If Year 12 was completed more than 2 years applicants will also need to show relevant work experience in the field of study applied for. Undergraduate Certificates with 新蒲萄京官方载首页 are micro-credentials that are constructed using 4 units from an 新蒲萄京官方载首页 Bachelor's degree. These 6-month courses can be used as a pathway to a Bachelor's qualification and is also a good taste-tester for students to see if a Bachelor's degree is the right fit for them.
Graduates from the Bachelor's program can choose from a range of Graduate Certificates to gain more knowledge in specialized areas within engineering once they graduate.
These micro-credentials are valuable in changing workplaces since each of the 17 Graduate Certificates offered at 新蒲萄京官方载首页 is aligned with industry needs – meaning it is targeted toward working engineers to upskill and gain even broader knowledge.
Similar to how Undergraduate Certificates and Advanced Diplomas with 新蒲萄京官方载首页 can help you enter our Bachelor courses; Graduate Certificates are also a great pathway into Master of Engineering courses with 新蒲萄京官方载首页.
A Bachelor's degree or equivalent is a necessity for post-graduate academic qualifications, and a Master-degree or equivalent allow students to have highly specialized training and education, that further enhances the knowledge and skills gained during the completion of a Bachelor's degree.
Two of 新蒲萄京官方载首页 Master’s programs are accredited under the Washington Accord.
The Online Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation)/On-campus Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) and Online Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems)/On-campus Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems) (recognized from the Perth campus only) qualifications are fully recognized by Engineers Australia (through the Washington Accord).
These qualifications are recognized (through the Washington Accord) by leading professional associations and societies. Signatories that have full rights of participation in the Accord are:
The pathway to a Bachelor's degree is then one of the keys to success for many engineers, because it not only gives you international relevance, you can also qualify for post-graduate studies and take part in lifelong learning.
