The Diploma of Engineering Studies aims to provide students a sound knowledge of basic engineering, scientific, computing and mathematical techniques; a knowledge of, and ability to apply, basic problem solving techniques; and basic knowledge and skills in one of the many available following fields of engineering: civil engineering; computer science engineering; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering; Electronics and Communications Engineering and many more engineering/vocational/technical subjects.
All over the country in many institutes, successful completion of the Diploma of Engineering Studies (subject to course selection) allows articulation also known as lateral entry for diploma holders into the third semester of Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Technology programmes. Thus, lateral entry for diploma holders is the most lucrative way for direct second year engineering admissions. The lateral entry for diploma holders saves a year on the part of students.
