Objectives:
On successful completion of a CQUniversity Associate Degree of Engineering program, graduates should demonstrate: 1. the ability to apply knowledge of basic science and engineering fundamentals; 2. the ability to communicate effectively, not only with others in engineering practice but also with the community at large; 3. technical competence to support and complement engineering activities in one engineering discipline; 4. the ability to undertake simple problem identification and formulation; and to identify, apply and adapt appropriate procedures, techniques and resources in their resolution; 5. understanding and knowledge of the application of standards, codes of practice and industry regulations in the specification, installation, testing, monitoring and operation of equipment and systems; 6. the ability to function effectively as an individual and in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with the capacity to be an effective team member; 7. understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the Engineering Associate; 8. understanding of the need for sustainable design and development; 9. understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and commitment to them; and 10. the expectation of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so.
Practical experience:
All students must complete at least 6 weeks of Faculty approved Industry Practice and report before being eligible to graduate
Entry Requirements:
Prerequisites - For students completing the mining specialisation only are required to be employed in the mining industry, in work appropriate to their course of study; recommended study - English, science subjects and maths
Award:

Course Description:

About Engineering

Do you enjoy solving problems? Are you curious about how things work? If you would like to be at the cutting edge of scientific and technological advancements, then becoming an Engineering Associate will provide a challenging career where you can utilise these abilities and interests and turn ideas into reality.

As an engineering associate you can focus on applications and interactions within systems. Engineering associates combine a sound engineering understanding with modern technology to apply and adapt sustainable engineering practices for communities, society and the environment in general. Engineering associates often work in support of professional engineers or engineering technologists in a team environment.

Civil engineering typically involves infrastructure systems planning, design and supervision including the construction of buildings and bridges, transport and water resource systems.

Mechanical engineering typically involves planning, design and supervision in climate control, manufacturing and process and machine systems.

Electrical engineering typically specialises in systems design, development and maintenance of systems associated with electrical power and energy, telecommunications, instrumentation and control, microprocessors and electronics.

Mining engineering typically involves the design, planning and operations of mines and mineral and coal processing plants.



Career Opportunities

Associate Degree of Engineering graduates enjoy a wide variety of challenging career options across a range of industries and government sectors. As an engineering associate you will apply your knowledge of engineering principles to the testing, inspection, adaptation, commissioning, management or operation of on-site equipment, plant and systems. You may prepare drawings or specifications for others to use in manufacture or construction.

Engineering associates, having specialised in one of the disciplines of civil (structural), civil (municipal/transportation) mechanical (process), mechanical (energy), mechanical (design), electrical (electronics and communication), electrical (electrical power and control), electrical (control and instrumentation), mining (underground) or mining (surface) find employment in national and international public and private industry sectors including the energy, transportation, manufacturing, process, construction, mining and education industries.

The Associate Degree of Engineering program is based on the project-based learning philosophy which offers the opportunity to learn in context. This approach is designed to produce work-ready graduates with industry-relevant skills.


Program Structure
This program is aimed at the education of engineering associates in 1 of 8 specialisations:

    * Civil
          o Structural
          o Municipal/Transportation
    * Electrical
          o Electrical Power and Machines
          o Control and Instrumentation
          o Electronics and Communications
    * Mechanical
          o Design
          o Process
          o Energy
    * Mining
          o Surface
          o Underground

This program is only available for external part-time study. Students who wish to progress through the program at a faster rate should apply in writing to the Faculty stating the reasons for their application.

All students enrol in a common first two years and then select a discipline stream.


Note: CQ67 has undergone a review. All courses shown below for Years 1 and 2 civil, mechanical and electrical specialisations will be on offer in 2007. Courses for Years 3 and 4 will be offered in 2008. Students enrolled in CQ67 prior to 2007 should refer to CQ68 handbook entry for course details and should seek advice regarding their study progression. See below for the mining programs.

To view transition documentation please go to http://www.fseh.cqu.edu.au/getFile.do?id=2381.
