Graduate Certificate in Engineering Asset Management (Online Delivery)

Course summary

The management of engineering assets is rapidly evolving into a recognised discipline. The vast majority of engineers in Australia, and around the world, are involved in managing engineering assets. Every day decisions are made that affect the lifecycle cost of a company’s highly valued assets and there are increasing expectations to demonstrate competency and transparency in these decisions.

Engineering Asset Management has evolved into a recognised discipline and this course draws on evolving International Standards and best practice to equip current and future asset managers to make rational decisions in an increasingly uncertain world.

The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Asset Management has been uniquely designed for professionals to develop and enhance their skills in the management of assets.

The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Asset Management ensures continuous improvement in the strategic and tactical response of organisations, and their managers, to the management of infrastructure assets.

The management of engineering assets is rapidly evolving into a recognised discipline. Every day engineers need to make decisions that affect the lifecycle cost of the expensive assets for which they are accountable.

This degree

The Graduate Certificate provides structured learning and development by a taking a problem-based approach. From a strategic framework you will progressively address problems in designing and managing assets. This is achieved through a balanced program of subjects in asset management, science and engineering, with emphasis on practical applications. You will learn concepts and techniques by evaluating potential solutions to challenges faced by organisations.

What you will study

The subjects you will study include Life Cycle and Risk Management, Maintenance Requirement Analysis, Systems Reliability Engineering and either Financial Management for Engineered Assets or an organisational management subject.
