Flinders University, BAE Systems and TAFE SA: Diploma of Digital Technologies
South Australia

The Diploma of Digital Technologies is a collaboration between Flinders University, BAE Systems Australia and TAFE SA. It contributes to furthering sovereign capability, along with supporting innovation, continuous naval shipbuilding and upskilling the workforce to deliver superior capability to the Australian Defence Force. While the Defence industry has been a catalyst for the uptake of industry 4.0 technologies, the outcomes of the collaboration can be replicated in other industries, with the potential to increase the number of students in STEM and job ready industries. The program has also secured funding for women over the next 4 years to progress addressing the current under-representation of women in both engineering and defence.
