TAFE SA has combined strong links with industry and successful South Australian university partnerships to create this innovative suite of courses.
Associate Degrees in Engineering combine theoretical understanding with industry-relevant practical skills, so you develop the knowledge and skills valued by employers.
As an engineering para-professional, you work in engineering teams at the interface between engineers and trades people. You might use advanced software to draft structures, or apply good practical skills to build prototype equipment. You may be at clients’ sites installing and commissioning new equipment, or out in the field testing advanced systems. You may be supervising teams of trades people, or running your own business.
With dual offer courses, you are accepted into both a TAFE SA qualification and a connected university program. This means that once you complete your TAFE SA course successfully, you have guaranteed entry – with credit – into university. This is an alternative pathway to university, which facilitates entry into a Bachelor of Engineering.
"Graduates of this course are what industry needs. They have good practical skills combined with solid academic and technical knowledge.
Students upon completion of this course are ready to commence their career with a solid foundation in industry practices and can effectively contribute to project outcomes from day one. This course provides “industry ready” students.
Our company is keenly involved in the students’ development, as we can see the value of their direct links with industry. The skills and knowledge of the students entering our mentor program have been of a high standard allowing us to apply students to current relevant engineering tasks. This provides immediate benefits to our company and also an opportunity to identify students for potential employment."
