UEE Computer Systems and Engineering

Project scope


The Computer Systems and Engineering project will review one qualification and 27 Units of Competency to ensure they reflect current technologies, industry requirements and work practices.


The qualification was last updated in 2012, and computer systems have evolved significantly since then, including the internet of things; sensors and transducers; cybersecurity; networking, network security and software defined networking; Industry 4.0; a range of needs related to programming; data analytics; cloud computing, cloud Architecture and Cloud Operations; wireless security; 5G; and, computer systems administration. Since the last update, a significant number of ICT Training Package units have been updated/developed which will be considered for use as imported units in this qualification.




The Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.


If you have any questions about this project, or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Skills Specialist.




The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by December 2022.

TAC Established

13 JANUARY 2022


The Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for this project.


Comprising of five subject matter experts from Industry, RTOs, regulators, Peak Bodies, the TAC has been tasked with:

  • Providing specialist industry subject-matter knowledge in the review of 24 existing Units of Competency and one existing qualification to ensure it reflects current technologies, industry requirements and work practices.
  • Validating the technical content of the Training Package products
  • Identifying relevant qualitative and quantitative data sources to inform the review of existing material
  • Reviewing feedback from stakeholders through public consultations
  • Assisting in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project
  • Offering advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration
  • Making recommendations on the reviewed Training Package materials to the IRC, which has the final decision-making authority.


The TAC held its first meeting on 14 December 2021.


Technical advisory committee




Work on this project has commenced and the Electrotechnology IRC is forming a TAC.


Your industry expertise and insight are welcome to help review and develop Training Package materials to ensure they reflect current technologies, industry and regulatory requirements, and work practices.


The project will review and update the Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems Engineering and 27 Units of Competency.


Computer systems have evolved significantly since the last review. This project will address skills related to the internet of things, sensors and transducers, cybersecurity, data analytics, and computer systems administration, among others. The project will also consider the significant number of ICT Training Package units that have been updated/developed recently, which could be used as imported units in the qualification.


Registrations closed Thursday, 7 October 2021.
