About Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science (GCNS) (Agricultural Engineering) at University of Southern Queensland

The objectives of the graduate certificate of engineering science are to: enable students, who hold appropriate three or four year engineering qualifications or equivalent in the relevant specialisation (major field), to complete a postgraduate program that will lead to an advanced theoretical and technical knowledge in an engineering discipline; and enable students who hold appropriate four year engineering qualifications or equivalent in a particular specialisation (major field) to change to another area of specialisation by completing a postgraduate program that will lead to advanced theoretical and technical knowledge in an engineering discipline. Through this four unit degree, students will study advanced level agricultural engineering, empowering to address problems relating to sustainable agricultural production, precision agriculture and the post-harvest handling of agricultural and other primary products. When students complete graduate certificate of engineering science they could take the credit from their studies and go on to complete the graduate diploma of engineering science. Students could even go on to complete the master of engineering science where they will have the opportunity to do a research project and dissertation to apply their formal knowledge to a real world issue. As an agricultural engineering graduate, students could work in agriculture, irrigation, intensive livestock, processing, transport, forestry, water supply, soil conservation, environmental protection and water conservation both in Australia and overseas. The program provides a pathway to the master of engineering science which is provisionally accredited with engineers Australia for membership as a graduate professional engineer.
