Past student Peter Bramall talking about his experience with EIT while studying the Advanced Diploma of Mechanical Engineering Technology:
Whilst there is probably not a serious shortage of theoretically oriented practitioners in mechanical engineering. there is a shortage of highly skilled practically oriented mechanical technologists and engineers in the world today, due to the new technologies only recently becoming a key component of all modern plants, factories and offices. The critical shortage of experts in the area has been accentuated by retirement, restructuring and rapid growth in new industries and technologies. This is regardless of the recession in many countries.
Many businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced mechanical engineers and technologists despite paying outstanding salaries. For example, about two years ago a need developed for mechanical technologists and engineers in building process plants. The interface from the traditional SCADA and industrial automation system to the web and to mechanical equipment has also created a new need for expertise in these areas. Specialists in these areas are few and far between.
The aim of this 18 month eLearning program is to provide you with core skills in working with mechanical engineering technology and systems and to take advantage of the growing need by industry here.
The five threads running through this program are:
- Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering Technologies
- Applications of Mechanical Engineering Technologies
- Energy Systems
- Industrial Automation

Learning and Teaching
Benefits of eLearning to Students
- Cost effectiv e: no travel or accommodation necessary
- Interactive. live, interactive sessions let you communicate with your instructor and fellow students
- Flexible. short interactive sessions over the Internet which you can attend from your home or office. Learn while you earn!
- Practical. perform exercises by remotely accessing our labs and simulation software
- Expert instructors. instructors have extensive industry experience; they are not just ‘academics’
- No geographical limits. learn from any location, all you need is an Internet connection
- Constant support. from your instructor(s) and a dedicated Course Coordinator for the complete duration of the course
- International insight. interact and network with participants from around the globe and gain valuable insight into international practice
Benefits of eLearning to Employers
- Lower training costs. no travel or accommodation necessary
- Less downtime. short webinars (60-90 minutes) and flexible training methods means less time away from work
- Retain employees. keep staff who may be considering a qualification as full time study
- Increase efficiency. improve your engineering or technical employees skills and knowledge
- International insight. students will have access to internationally based professional instructors and students
How Does it Work?
EIT eLearning courses involve a combination of live, interactive sessions over the Internet with a professional instructor, set readings, and assignments. The courses include simulation software and remote laboratory applications to let you put theory to practice, and provide you with constant support from a dedicated Course Coordinator.
Practical Exercises and Remote Laboratories
As part of the groundbreaking new way of teaching, our online engineering courses use a series of remote laboratories (labs) and simulation software, to facilitate your learning and to test the knowledge you gain during your course. These involve complete working labs set up at various locations of the world into which you will be able to log to and proceed through the various practical sessions.
These will be supplemented by simulation software, running either remotely or on your computer, to ensure you gain the requisite hands-on experience. No one can learn much solely from lectures, the labs and simulation software are designed to increase the absorption of the materials and to give you a practical orientation of the learning experience. All this will give you a solid, practical exposure to the key principles covered and will ensure that you obtain maximum benefit from your course.
