Engineering and Mining

Engineering is the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building and use of engines, machines, and structures. Engineering encompasses a diverse range of areas including fitters, machinists, boilermakers, sheetmetal workers, welders, refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics, engineering technicians, detailed drafters, and maintenance technicians. Our hands-on qualifications, advanced technologies and purpose built facilities, including an operating gas plant, ensure our students graduate skilled and job-ready. Western Australia’s engineering industry is very closely linked to the mining and construction industries and offers a wide range of career opportunities.

The Advanced Diploma of Process Plant Technology PMA60116 is an advanced qualification for both school leavers and/or industry professionals looking to progress through to university studies and/or advance their career standing.

For industry professionals looking to advance their career, the Advanced Diploma of Process Plant Technology is a technical qualification for para-professionals who undertake technical projects such as plant modifications, energy and mass balances, risk management & safety cases either individually or as part of a project team where they have a significant technical role. They may have worked their way up through the process plant operation/technology certificate and diploma qualifications or may have entered the industry at this level, either from another industry or trade occupation.

Looking for a qualification that can progress you through to university studies? The Advanced Diploma of Process Plant Technology is accredited by Engineers Australia, the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers in the nation. It is eligible for advanced standing at Edith Cowan University (1.5 years) or Curtin University (1 year). In order to obtain the advanced standing, the completion of the Engineers Australia skillset is required. This is undertaken in the second semester of the course. 

Career outcomes within the oil & gas industry include Person in Charge (PIC) and Offshore Installation Manager (OIM), while other roles in the resource sector include Superintendent, Advanced Engineering Tradesperson, Project Analyst, Project Coordinator and more.

The course is competency-based, which requires those undertaking the training to prove competence either by face to face learning or by completing practical assessments in the work place, as well as showing theoretical competence.
