Engineering & Technology

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Studies in engineering and technology prepare you for the technologically oriented workforce of today.

Members of the workforce with engineering and technology training are sought out by many industries including medical research and computer software development.

 

Australia has a subsidized higher education for students pursuing the undergraduate degrees. They also give loan and grants for the post graduate students. Higher learning starts at undergraduate degree level to a doctoral degree offered in any field of study.

The University of Newcastle, GradSchool (Online)
Campus or Online Full time Part time May 2017 Australia Newcastle

The program will involve presenters who are current practitioners in the industry as well as presenters from the University. The program will provide a case based approach to the study of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction. The focus of the program is case based drawing on the expertise and experiences of current practitioners. [+]

In recent years, an increase in natural and human created disasters have adversely impacted the local communities and nations as a whole. Some disasters have international impacts requiring international intervention. Constructing a disaster resilient system involves interventions in the preparedness, emergency response and redevelopment phases of the disaster management cycle.

This program applies recognised disaster management practices, providing graduates with the unique ability to work on approaches to building disaster resilience in context specific situations. The professional application of disaster management skills and techniques for preparing and responding to post disaster situations will develop graduates who are a valuable resource for local government bodies, non-governmental organisations, and national and international organisations/business involved or seeking to be involved in disaster management. Throughout this program you will develop unique and specialised strategic and operational disaster management skills that can be applied in the event of a disaster. As one of the only universities to offer this disaster management degree accommodating multiple discipline backgrounds, the University of Newcastle educates graduates to be immediately valuable to multiple disaster management stakeholder groups. Our advanced online learning system provides you with the flexibility and support to study anytime, anywhere to balance work, life and study.
