Course Information

Develop deep defence expertise

  • Defence-tech engineering is its own world—unique concepts discussed in unique contexts. But with the industry’s current rate of growth outpacing supply of suitably qualified staff, defence-related organisations are keenly seeking professionals who speak their ‘language’.

  • Our new Associate Degree in Technology (Defence Industries) will give you both the necessary vocabulary and the scientific understanding to use it—whether coordinating research, translating it for customers, or approaching partners.

What will you do

  • Taught over two years full-time within a faculty ranked 43 in the world for computer science and engineering*, the degree leverages the University’s strong industry links and world-class research. It emphasises real-world experience, with over 150 hours of work-based training.

  • In addition to gaining a broad understanding of technology’s foundational sciences—computer, information, mathematical, natural and physical—you’ll develop skills in evaluating and using:

    • engineering methods, tools and processes in real-world defence-related contexts

    • systems-thinking principles to manage and develop well-structured and maintainable defence technology solutions

    • AI and automation technologies (Industry 4.0)

    • data analytics and cyber security applications

    • mechatronics and electrical principles

    • advanced critical thinking and interpersonal communication.

Where could it take you

  • You could play an important role linking defence-tech engineering with hands-on technicians and head-office executives in defence-related organisations of all kinds—anything from ‘prime’ contractors to local SMEs or the Department of Defence. You’ll also receive advanced standing towards the Bachelor of Technology (Defence Industries).
