In 2020, as part of its response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Commonwealth Government introduced a new formal higher education qualification, the Undergraduate Certificate. These six-month courses are designed to help Australians upskill or retrain in national priority areas.
Monash College is excited to offer four undergraduate certificates for students who want to build their skills and knowledge, or who are looking for a great way to begin a pathway to Monash University :
The Undergraduate Certificate in Engineering gives you the knowledge, skills and practical experience for entry-level positions in a variety of engineering fields; for example, as a technician or technical assistant.
The Undergraduate Certificate in Information Technology gives you the technical skills in computer systems and programming that can lead to a variety of careers in the information technology (IT) industry including computer game designer, software developer, mobile app designer, web developer, cybersecurity specialist, IT project manager and infrastructure business analyst.
The Undergraduate Certificate in Applied Data Science develops your technical know-how in being able to approach data challenges and prepares you for entry level positions in fields like consulting, cybersecurity, law, scientific research, marketing, robotics, engineering, business analytics, and banking.
The Undergraduate Certificate in Science gives you the knowledge, skills and experience that can lead to a variety of careers across the fields of biological sciences, biomedical and behavioural sciences, earth and environmental sciences, mathematical and computational sciences, and physical and chemical sciences.
Each certificate is the equivalent of six months’ full-time study and provides a pathway for entry into a diploma at Monash College, which is a pathway to studying a bachelor degree at Monash University.
Undergraduate certificate students will sit alongside Monash College diploma students in a selection of units, which gives them a taste of what it’s like to study a diploma at the College.
So whether you want to upskill in your area of work, or want to start your learning journey, the Monash College undergraduate certificate gives you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and open up your future.
