    Course Notes

    • Students wishing to undertake the Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems Engineering after completing the Diploma of Computer Systems Engineering can do so with an extra 30 weeks of study with a total duration of 5.5 semesters. Students will receive a parchment for each qualification. Alternatively students can enrol directly into the Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems Engineering for a duration of 5 semesters. Students taking this option will not complete all of the course requirements of the Diploma and therefore will not be eligible for a Diploma parchment. Students will only receive the Advanced Diploma parchment.
