Overview

Associate Degree in Engineering

You will be introduced to core concepts across civil, electrical and mechanical engineering disciplines, developing your understanding of each field.

Engineers apply science and maths concepts to solve practical problems

The maths skills you gain will be essential to further your understanding of more complex engineering concepts. 

You’ll learn the basics of algebra, trigonometry and calculus.

You will also cover basic concepts in chemistry and physics and their practical engineering applications. 

Explore fluid mechanics, circuits and signals, and the structures and properties of materials. 

Develop the skills to produce 2D engineering drawings and 3D engineering models, which is an essential skill to communicate visual designs.

The Associate Degree in Engineering covers various subjects, including essential maths, physics and chemistry, and first-year courses from UniSA’s engineering bachelor degrees.

Our practical approach to learning means you’ll gain the skills to hit the ground running. 

You’ll learn to use industry-standard software such as SolidWorks to produce 3D CAD models that bring your designs alive, Enovia (Dassault Systems) to develop detailed project plans, MATLAB to process data and Mulitsim to instantly visualise and analyse electronic circuit behaviour. 

You’ll discover how engineering intersects with essential business management practices across diverse environments and study systems and design thinking techniques.

 

Real-world connections

UniSA collaborates with over 2,500 companies worldwide. 

If you go on to study Engineering (Honours), you’ll have many opportunities to gain hands-on experience and make industry connections. 

The UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program allows you to gain at least 450 hours of skills and competencies through various engagement activities such as placements, internships, guest lectures, industry panels, site visits, networking and events.

UniSA also hosts regular University-wide employee master classes and employment expos, and alumni events in Australia and overseas.
