NEW Advanced Diploma in Building Automation – Electromechanical Engineering Technology

T146 Program Building Automation Student

Specialization in building automation is growing in demand. Most electromechanical engineering technology programs focus on automation and robotics for the industrial/manufacturing sector, but not building automation and the construction/property development sector. Our program bridges that gap - answering the growing demand by industry employers.

Huge Growth and Employer Demand

This advanced diploma will prepare you for variety of jobs in the industrial/manufacturing sector, and will also give you the skillset needed to meet the growing labour demand from the construction and property development sector. Builders and property managers are looking for graduates to design and integrate building control systems such as lighting, telephony, security, PLC, HVAC, air quality, energy consumption and fire and safety. Employers are seeking graduates familiar with a centralized approach to managing and controlling a building from an interface that provides building-wide efficiency, cost-effective operations and information sharing.

Flexibility

If you hold a 2 year diploma in electromechanical engineering, you may be eligible to complete this program in just 1 year* – delivering you with a 3 year advanced diploma in just one year. Contact the School of Mechanical and Engineering Technologies today for more information - Courses start in September!
