Entry requirements for
Some units in this course are offered in a flexible delivery mode, allowing candidates to complete some of their studies at home or at their workplace. For some units, some attendance at on- and off-campus site visits and technology operation sessions will be a requirement.
The coursework assumes a prior understanding of the relevant fundamentals for the disciplines in Engineering and Information Technology to a level allowing entry into the course. Consequently, students entering the course must have passed the relevant units for gaining the required knowledge for the course at Murdoch or their equivalent elsewhere. The adequacy of background knowledge by applicants is judged by the Academic Chair or their designate.
