Course content

This course is a conversion course which aims to enable students from a technical, maths, computing or other related background to equip themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable the deployment of digital systems into highly technological organisations.

Rapid advances in digital technologies and connectivity have changed the landscape of industry to the extent that many believe we are at the beginning of a fourth industrial revolution. This digital future will require a new generation of highly computer-literate engineers who can harness the power of digital engineering and take it to the workplace.

Individuals who have the skill set to design, implement and support these new ‘smart’ techniques and systems to improve industrial competitiveness could be highly employable in this future digital landscape.
