Graduate Diploma in Petroleum Engineering - Postgrado en Ingeniería Petrolífera
The Graduate Diploma of Engineering Science program is designed for engineers and graduates wishing to develop and expand their knowledge and skills in their current area of expertise.* This will enable students to meet or maintain professional accreditation standards and to provide opportunities for continuing professional development, as well as the opportunity to interact with those at the cutting edge of their discipline.
Students will add breadth to their knowledge of engineering in general and expand their knowledge and skills in engineering management. Students will develop their technical knowledge and ability to analyse engineering problems. They will also gain further skills in solving engineering problems and justifying professional decisions.
(* It is also possible for students to acquire knowledge and skills in a different specialisation at the approval of the Stream Authority. This may require the student to take additional foundation and disciplinary knowledge courses at the discretion of the Stream Authority.)
completion of a recognized bachelor degree
meet English requirements.
* Some programs have additional entry requirements, please contact UNSW for this information.
The program is designed to enable students to fulfil a number of needs including:
Updating technical knowledge and skills in an existing engineering specialisation.
Acquiring new knowledge and skills in a different engineering specialisation.
Developing and expanding knowledge and skills in engineering management.
Updating qualifications and knowledge to meet or maintain professional accreditation standards.
Providing opportunities for continuing professional development.
Providing opportunities for interaction with those at the cutting edge of the discipline.
Providing a pathway towards the Masters program.
Students must complete 48UOC of courses to be eligible for the degree. This degree is offered in the following specialisations (streams):
Chemical Process Engineering
Food Process Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering & Engineering Geology
Manufacturing Engineering & Management
Photovoltaics & Solar Energy
Renewable Energy Engineering
Water Engineering: Catchments to Coasts
Water, Wastewater & Waste Engineering
Specialisations may be broad or narrow, and include options that cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries in the Faculty. Some specialisations include approved courses outside the Faculty of Engineering. A number of specialisation courses may be offered in both internal and external attendance modes and may be delivered in regular sessions, block or intensive modes on or off campus.
At the discretion of the Program or Stream Authority, students may be required to develop their foundational disciplinary knowledge through enrolment in undergraduate level courses that are deemed appropriate by the Authority. Students will be granted credit towards the program for the satisfactory completion of these courses up to a maximum of 12UOC.
A student may apply for credit towards the program. For example, a student with a 4-year engineering honours degree could obtain a maximum of 24UOC of advanced standing. Applications for credit should be addressed to the Stream Authority (see relevant school site for further details).
