The Diploma in Engineering (Mechatronics) will replace the Diploma in Technology (Mechatronics). The course can be completed in 2.5 years on a part-time basis.
Note: This proposed course is pending approval, and subject to further changes. More details will be released in early 2012.
Under a revised Framework, the new diploma aims to provide greater accessibility for working adults through:
