  • Objectives
    The primary aims of this course are to: * further extend the advanced studies provided by the Graduate Certificate or students with an undergraduate degree in electronic engineering, who would like to broaden their professional expertise or to specialise in that field of engineering; and * to provide further professional knowledge and skills in the research and development of Smart Instrumentation. Learning outcomes The expected learning outcomes for the degree include: * an advanced level of knowledge of the Engineering principles underlying the application of Smart Instrumentation; * expertise in a range of technical skills used in the application of Smart Instrumentation Engineering; * the capacity to apply that knowledge and skills to the development of Smart Technical applications; and, * well developed skills in written and oral communication, problem solving and critical thinking.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants normally must hold an approved undergraduate Engineering degree with appropriate electronic content, or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution. An applicant who has not previously studied electronics may be required to undertake appropriate bridging studies. The Faculty Board may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature. The Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) is not available to graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering (Computer and Electronic), Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics), or equivalent undergraduate courses from other tertiary institutions. Graduates of these degrees or similar may apply for admission to the Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation).
  • Academic Title
    Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation)
  • Course description
     The Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) is a 36-unit program offered by the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics, within the Faculty of Science and Engineering on a Commonwealth Supported basis.

    "Smart Instrumentation" refers to the increasing range of devices that display some form of "intelligence" whether by being self-monitoring (instrumentation), providing self-initiated responses and self-moderating behaviour (control) or having (wireless) mobility. This includes devices such as a mobile phone through to robotics through to "intelligent" structures that self-monitor and self-control temperature, vibrations etc.

    The course articulates with the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) and the Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation), and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the three awards.

    PROGRAM OF STUDY  [November, 2008]

    To qualify for the Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation), a student must complete 36 units with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, according to the program of study below.

    36 units chosen from the following list, of which at least 30 units must be selected from the ENGR topics #:


    Real Time Control Systems



    Communications Systems GE*



    Smart Sensors and Actuators



    Advanced Image Processing



    Autonomous Systems



    Embedded Systems Project



    Embedded Systems Architectures



    Digital Image Processing GE*



    Advanced Signal Processing GE*



    Information Retrieval and Visualisation **



    Intelligent Database Systems



    Java Card Development **



    Mobile Applications ** ^^



    Interactive Computer Systems GE **



    Network Systems **



    Computer Operating Systems **


    # With the permission of the course coordinator, suitable other topics from the Master of Engineering (Biomedical), the Master of Information Technology or the Computer Science / Information Technology Honours topics may also be chosen.

    * A student will not normally be permitted to enrol in the postgraduate topic if they have passed the related undergraduate topic.

    ** These topics are existing Honours or Masters COMP topics. They require an adequate background in Java programming which if students do not have, they can obtain by completing (as part of the 36 units) the topic COMP8008 Computer Programming GE (3 units) or COMP8501 Advanced Programming A (3 units). COMP8008 is offered in intensive mode prior to the start of each semester as well as in semester 2.

    ^^ This topic may be undertaken cross-institutionally at University of South Australia with permission.
