This course has been designed to address areas of current need as a result of the increased use of technology within production facilities in the manufacturing sector. The North-West region of Tasmania has long been recognised as a centre for traditional manufacturing. In recent decades, market changes have encouraged local businesses to focus on advanced manufacturing such as the supply of components to original equipment manufacturers (OEM).

The Undergraduate Certificate in Equipment Design and Project Management aims to prepare you with the skills and knowledge relevant to a range of industries which utilise equipment design and is suited to individuals pursuing a career in the manufacturing industry across a variety of roles.

Completion of the Undergraduate Certificate in Equipment Design and Project Management will enable you to:

  • apply industry 4.0 concepts within the manufacturing environment
  • commence employment or enhance career opportunities
  • transition into further study, with credit into an Associate Degree in Equipment Design and Technology
  1. Explain and apply materials, tools, methods and techniques in a manufacturing environment using industry 4.0
  2. Identify and describe equipment design safety, quality and industry standards
  3. Communicate and reflect on knowledge, skills, behaviours and attributes required to develop and enhance career opportunities

Practice-based, experiential learning and portfolio development is a key component of the Undergraduate Certificate in Equipment Design and Project Management. In order to develop key transferable practitioner skills, students are exposed to authentic and engaging learning experiences designed to develop their understanding of work and the workplace. The work-based components will be tailored to individual student circumstances. Students with current employment will be encouraged to apply and complete relevant assessments within their work environment. At a minimum, students without access to a relevant work environment will be provided with authentic simulated experiences. Students are introduced to (i) different methods of and approaches to practice, (ii) how issues such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership are reflected in the workplace and (iii) the role of reflection and deliberative thinking in developing workplace-based knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations.
