Faculty of Science and Technology



From lager to ale, porter to stout, the art of brewing reaches back millennia.

Hone your craft at the University's own unique microbrewery, and continue our proud tradition of brewing education that dates back to 1971.

The emphasis within the Graduate Certificate/Diploma of Brewing is on developing a sound knowledge - both theory and practical - of core concepts and issues in the malting and brewing industries. FedUni also offers a short program in malting and brewing, which covers the basic science behind brewing.

Ideal for individuals and industry, these programs will assist students in shaping their own brewing careers.

If you have not completed a Bachelor degree, it is recommended you look at undertaking one of the following pathways to strengthen any future application:

TAFE pathway > undergraduate study > postgraduate study: If you do not have the entry requirements for a bachelors degree, a TAFE course that includes chemistry and ideally biology / microbiology if possible would be most appropriate to allow entry to a Science degree, leading to the ultimate goal of the Graduate Certificate of Brewing. A TAFE Certificate IV in Food Processing / Laboratory Techniques / Winemaking, etc may be appropriate starting points. At Fed Uni we offer a Certificate IV in Food Science and Technology.
