Graduate Diploma of Engineering with Honours (GradDipEng(Hons))

Course code: N6Z
The Graduate Diploma of Engineering with Honours may be the bridging program you need, if you already hold an approved Bachelor's degree and would like to further your studies in Engineering.

On completion this will enable you to be accepted into Master's or PhD programs.

Admission requirements & prerequisites
To be accepted as a candidate for the Graduate Diploma of Engineering with Honours you must either have an appropriate degree from the University of Tasmania, or have completed an engineering qualification with sufficient merit from another institution.

Course structure
To qualify for the award of the Diploma, a candidate must satisfactorily complete a program of study and project work as prescribed by the Faculty. The candidate must:
*select units from those listed in Schedule A below, which have not previously been counted by the candidate towards an award of the University, with a total weight of at least 60%, unless the Faculty determines otherwise; and
*under supervision, carry out and write a report on a project, with a weight of 40%, which is equivalent in standard to that required for BE Honours.
