This course is an exit award for students undertaking the Bachelor of Applied Technology.
Associate Degree of Engineering graduates enjoy a wide variety of challenging career options across a range of industries and government sectors. As an applied technologist associate you may prepare drawings or specifications for others to use in manufacture or construction. Graduates would expect to find employment in a workshop environment, where their skills in scheduling and estimating will support the management of engineering workshop based projects.
The Associate Degree of Applied Technology course is based on the project-based learning philosophy which offers the opportunity to learn in context. This approach is designed to produce work-ready graduates with industry-relevant skills.
