In collaboration with industry partners, primarily IIC Technologies, Deakin has launched a new training offering in critical hydrographic surveying. Hydrographic surveying is a critical skill for Australia’s future, including our national security, economic growth, and environmental sustainability.
The program is delivered as a combination of remote learning (not less than 13 weeks), and onsite practicals (3 weeks) and assessments (4 weeks), ensuring students have the knowledge and experience they need. This program is endorsed to maximise delivery via distance learning, which means that the majority of the course can be undertaken by students in their own location, with the practicals and assessment being undertaken consecutively at Deakin University’s facilities in Warrnambool, Victoria.
The online delivery is provided by as part of a global distance learning delivery that also includes North America and Europe, allowing students the benefit of learning in a global pool of students. The delivery of the practical components and final assessment is undertaken consecutively in each of the regions, with a maximum of 12 students per region to ensure high levels of instructor-led hands on learning. Further it allows Australasian students to be brought into direct contact with important regional entities including National Authorities, Professional Bodies, academia and industry partners.
This course runs annually with the online component commencing in September and the onsite practical component commencing in Australia in April the following year.
