These elective modules are also available as independent awards which students may take for the purposes of upskilling or retraining in the area of Environmental Sustainability, Medical Device Science, Lean and Quality Systems or Form and Function of the Human Body. Who is the course intended for? The specialist diplomas are primarily intended for students who already have a Science or Engineering related diploma or degree and who wish to up-skill or become expert in one of the specialist areas as offered through these one-year diploma courses.
