  • 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.

There is scarcely an aspect of modern life that is not dependent on electrical energy. It is used in such varied activities as cooling, heating, transport, manufacturing, production, communications, minerals processing and water transfer. Engineers and technicians with an electrical diploma find employment in fields as diverse as generation, transmission, distribution and the eventual application of electrical energy in machinery. Due to the challenges of climate change there is also a vital interest in the use and storage of renewable and sustainable energy. The demand for well trained electrical professionals is assured with rapid expansion of the electricity supply in the developing world, the addition of the yet-to-be-constructed smart grid, and our growing dependency upon electricity supply of high integrity.

Electrical engineering skills and knowledge are also critical in a wide range of industries ranging from oil and gas, water utilities, process plants, mining, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and defence. The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) provides electrical engineering courses online for engineers and technicians of all levels and from all types of industry, be it mining, oil and gas or instrumentation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Steeliness, Support and Success


Paula Palmer graduated from the EIT’s Advanced Diploma of Applied Electrical Engineering in May of 2012. Paula works for the Barbados Light & Power Co. Ltd as an electrical engineer in the in the Substations Section of the Distribution Department. One of Paula’s colleagues recommended the course to her, however, the course outline was the convincer as Paula said, “I realized that it would provide me with knowledge which I would not have necessarily gained while studying at university or in my day to day tasks. I especially liked the fact that most of the modules could be applied in my job in the substations section.” Read her full story here.

"I have had a very heavy work load and including 2 mill shuts and a mine shut so far this year, which involves 12 hour, 7 day weeks. However, one of my projects was to install and commission a 1.2MVA 6.6kv/690 transformer. I cannot stress how valuable the modules contexts was for me to make the project a success. During installation of a commissioning, I referred to the modules countless times - even the onsite engineers asked me for info from the modules. (referring to DEE15 - Module 5)" C. Webber (South Africa)

"Well done EIT, very good course that is applicable to my work." M. Georgievski (Australia)

"Content in the online lectures were clear and concise." D. Koshemakin

"Active class learning in the comfort of our homes." K. Ntini
