Integrated technology is the coming together of various technologies that were previously stand alone, into new and innovative integrated applications.
The impact of the application of integrated technologies is being increasingly felt within a range of industry areas such as mining, engineering, electrical, electronic, information technology and manufacturing industries. The technology used by these industries range from traditional electronics, hardware platform, networking automation, fibre internet connectivity.
Technicians who work in Industry 4.0 sectors are required to be skilled in multiple disciplines.
To be able to competently repair and maintain equipment you will need knowledge and skills in the following areas:
Networking – Including both wireless and cabled networks that incorporates the principles of cyber security
Data Collection and Predictive Analysis.
Electronics – You may be required to repair and fault-find sensitive electric equipment
Electrical – You will need to be able to understand the electrical concepts incorporating safety and licensing issues
Mechatronics – You'll have to have an understanding of the equipment that is used in the automatic processing and manufacture of products
Auto control - Repair and maintenance of automatic control systems whether they are physical devices on site or control provided by online via the industrial internet of things will also be a required skill
Robotics – You will need to be able to program and repair robotic equipment
Graduates of the course will be able to seek employment as service technicians capable of operating, installing and repairing a wide variety of equipment and includes the “Industrial Internet of Things” (IIoT).
- Installation of integrated technology applications

Further study, including at university, in electrotechnology or engineering.
This qualification is part of the Lower fees, local skills(opens in a new tab) program where you'll pay only half of the standard course fees from 1 January to 31 December 2021. The “annual fees cap” means that full-fee paying students will only pay a maximum of $1,200 (plus resource fee) and concession-fee paying students or those aged 15-24 years will only pay up to $400 (plus resource fee).

- Fees may also differ for each individual student depending on the units of study selected, prior qualifications and recognition of prior learning.
- Fees are payable at enrolment each semester for the units enrolled for that period. Some year-long courses might have a bigger fee load in the first semester.
- Proof of concession must be presented to access concession rates if eligible.
- For secondary school aged persons (in 2021, students born on or after 1 July 2003 who are at least 15 years old) undertaking training that is not part of a VET Delivered to Secondary Schools program, the maximum course fee chargeable in 2021 is $420 plus the resource fees and discretionary fees.
- Concessions and Secondary School Age cap do not apply to commercial courses (such as short courses), or Foundation Programs (ESL, General Education, etc.).
- Prices quoted include resource fees, but do not include material fees such as the cost of books, uniforms and students personal equipment.
- The course fee cap applicable to Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas only applies during the current calendar year, so fees might differ for students enrolling in semester 2.
