This qualification is directly aligned with priority industry areas where jobs are today, and into the future. As part of the state government Lower fees, local skills program, through to 31 December 2025 you'll only pay half the tuition fees (plus resource fee) capped at $1,200; or $400 if you're aged 15—24 or eligible for a concession.

^ You will pay half price for the tuition fees on the Lower fees, local skills qualifications, however other fees may apply such as Resource fees that are specific to your course. For full details see our Half price courses page.

Study Mode On campus.

Want to work on international engineering projects?

Gain advanced skills in the design and drafting of engineering plans to Australian and New Zealand standards and you could be working on local, interstate or international engineering projects.

This comprehensive qualification in civil and structural engineering could see you working on projects ranging from skyscrapers to intricate road designs.

This course will extend your study of the design and construction of civil works like dams, structures and pipe networks that is covered in the Diploma course.

While the emphasis is on producing working drawings for civil works which are used to communicate the engineers designs to the workers involved in constructing the works, you can participate more in the design decisions that are made.

You will learn a range of engineering drafting standards and receive exposure to CAD programs selected from autocad, Revit and 12D. You will extend your ability to address technical issues beyond what is achieved in the Diploma course.

  • Apply construction principles to civil engineering works
  • Produce advanced engineering designs and drawings
  • 3D CAD in engineering
  • Learn structural analysis in engineering

I have the following attributes:

  • An interest in solving practical and technical problems
  • Planning and organisational skills
  • Analytical skills and the ability to interpret information
  • Strong communication skills
  • An understanding of the principles of physics and maths
