GD-CRENGR v.1 Graduate Diploma in Corrosion Engineering
This course is not available to International Onshore Students on Student Visas
Graduate Diplomas prepare students to develop advanced knowledge and skills for professional or highly skilled work and further learning corresponding to AQF level 8 qualifications.
This Curtin University Corrosion Engineering Course is unique to the region and offers an opportunity to study from your home location. This course provides an advanced professional qualification for graduates in engineering or science disciplines.
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
Course Entry and Completion Details
Applicants for a Graduate Diploma are required to meet University academic and English language entry standards; details are provided at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au. Applicants generally require a Bachelor Degree or Graduate Certificate. Any specific course entry and completion requirements must also be met.
Specifically, applicants require a recognised bachelor degree in engineering or science with equivalent of first year Chemistry.
Credit for Recognised Learning
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au.
A student who has successfully completed the requirements of an approved intermediate award may apply for graduation in that award subject to approval of Head of School/Department. Fees apply. Intermediate awards approved for this course:
GC-CRENGR Graduate Certificate in Corrosion Engineering
Pathway to Further Study
Graduates may qualify for entry to some Master degrees. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Graduate Diplomas contain a series of units which may include compulsory (core), optional or elective units to cater for student preferences. They may contain a range of majors/streams for students to choose from to pursue learning in a specialised area of study.
Course Learning Outcomes
A graduate of this course can:
1. apply corrosion theories and principles to account for corrosion causes, failures and prevention strategies
2. analyse a range of practical corrosion-related problems (case-studies) or situations potentially impacted by corrosion and propose viable and/or creative solutions
3. acquire relevant corrosion-related data from the literature and other sources, and interpret or re-interpret the data in synthesising practical reports
4. use professional language and technically accurate written work to effectively communicate with corrosion engineers, operators and managers
5. describe the corrosion characteristics of engineering materials, corrosion testing methods, prevention technologies, and explain their strength and limitations
6. demonstrate self-reliance, motivation and initiative in planning and managing own learning
7. describe major international corrosion prevention standards and practices, and their differences
8. be aware of the cultural impact of engineering or related operations
9. demonstrate behaviours which support and uphold expectations of practicing engineers and the engineering profession
