T23 University Certificate in Maintenance Engineering
The University Certificate in Maintenance Engineering is an opportunity for those wanting to pursue a career in industrial maintenance to develop the underlying planning, application and development skills needed. The course also provides an opportunity for those who have worked on specific aspects of mechanical systems maintenance to explore new avenues of work within the field. The course provides a mix of lecture based, practical, and project based components.

Standard ECU admission requirements into courses at the university certificate level apply.

Additionally, applicants for this course will need to demonstrate:

  • two years of professional experience in the field of maintenance engineering. Experience in a strongly allied field of industry or training may be acceptable subject to approval by the course coordinator, and
  • a proven level of understanding of engineering mechanics (equivalent to that in ENM2210 Engineering Mechanics) and
  • a proven level of understanding of mathematics (equivalent to that in MAT1137 Introductory Applied Mathematics).


Applicants without the necessary engineering mechanics and/or mathematics background can still be granted entry, but will need to successfully complete University bridging courses in these areas.
