The Master of Engineering (Systems Engineering) and the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Systems Engineering) will no longer be on offer to new students.
Transition arrangements and/or a teach out period has been communicated to students who are already working towards either of these programs.
This Graduate Certificate enables graduates to understand the systems engineering roles in their organisations well enough to make useful contributions to those roles or to lead the interface of systems engineering with other portfolios. The course provides a coherent foundation for understanding of systems engineering and, test and evaluation.
Graduates of this program will:
- have a body of knowledge that enables them to contribute effectively into engineering organisations concerned with systems engineering work in industry and government;
- be able to learn new processes and regulations in systems engineering affecting their field of practice;
- be prepared to learn from their experience, and to integrate that experience with their knowledge derived through the course, to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes to take leadership of major projects;
- have the ability to successfully address the problems presented in complex engineering projects;
- have demonstrated ability to work alone on major tasks, and also to work in teams;
- have an appreciation of ethical practice issues relevant to systems engineering, which concerns the development and certification of systems as suitable for particular purposes under traceable processes designed to assure right practice; and
- be effective, professional communicators.
- A Bachelor degree in engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics or information technology from a recognised University AND 2 years of work experience
- Required IELTS Score: 7.0
The Master of Engineering (Systems Engineering) and the Graduate Certificate are in the process of being closed. A select range of units will be offered over the next few years to enable students who have started the course to complete either the Graduate Certificate or Masters. Each of the selected units will be offered only once.
The units offered in 2015 are:
- Study Period 1: EENG5047 Principles of Test and Evaluation
- Study Period 2: EENG5132 Engineering Management
Students are encouraged to contact the Program Director for further information.
Students must complete all four units in the course. They may choose the order in which they take the units, provided that either Principles of Systems Engineering (EENG4052) or Principles of Test and Evaluation (EENG5047) is taken before Modelling and Simulation for Systems Engineering (EENG5118).
UniSA recognises prior learning and this course values related work/life experiences. Credit may be granted for similar courses upon evidence of successful completion, which will be assessed and granted on a case-by-case basis according to the policies of UniSA.
