Past student Peter Bramall talking about his experiences with the EIT studying the Advanced Diploma of Mechanical Engineering Technology:
Update your mechanical engineering skills or gain new insight in the field of mechanical engineering by undertaking this Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology. The focus is on real-world, practical systems typically encountered by mechanical engineers worldwide.
This 18 month e-learning programme will provide you with core skills in working with mechanical engineering technology and systems and to take advantage of the growing for trained and skilled personnel in industry. This course is composed of 72 topics which cover five engineering threads to provide you with maximum practical coverage in the field of mechanical engineering. The topics that will be covered during this Diploma covers the core fundaments of mechanical engineering, which is then expanded to specific topics such as pumps, compressors, lifts, lubrication, control, automation etc. Ultimately, all this newly gained knowledge is combined with a unit on practical project management for engineers, a skill that is as vital as the technical skills required by industry today.
The course is designed to benefit those mechanical engineers wishing to enhance or update some of their skills and knowledge, as well as non-mechanical engineers and technicians who work in an environment where they often encounter mechanical systems.
The five threads running through this program are:

What are the fees for my country?
The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) provides distance education to students located almost anywhere in the world – it is one of the very few truly global training institutes. Course fees are paid in a currency that is determined by the student’s location. A full list of fees in a currency appropriate for every country would be complex to navigate and, with today’s exchange rate fluctuations, difficult to maintain. Instead we aim to give you a rapid response regarding fees that is customised to your individual circumstances.
We understand that cost is a major consideration before a student commences study. For a rapid reply to your enquiry regarding courses fees and payment options, please enquire via the below button and we will respond within 1 business day.
Please contact us with your location for certificate fees in the relevant currency. Certificate fees include all live webinars with a professional instructor, 4 technical manuals (as searchable eBooks), course materials, software, postage, assignments and ongoing support. All you need to participate is an internet connection, computer and headset. We have group discounts available for our 3 month certificates.
Three payment options are available for the Advanced Diploma courses;
Pay total amount upfront to receive a 5% reduction in fees.
Pay in 6 equal instalments over 18 months. First payment at least two weeks before the course starts, then the remaining five every 3 months. Payment dates will be set ahead of time and provided at the start of the course. You would receive the 30 technical reference eBooks in batches over the duration of the course.
Pay in even installments for 18 months. First payment at least two weeks before the course starts, then one on the same date every month for the remaining period. This option incurs a 2% administration fee. You would receive the 30 technical reference eBooks in batches over the duration of the course.

Mechanical Engineering encompasses the conceptualisation, design, manufacture, control and maintenance of machines ranging from a conveyer, space shuttle to nanotechnology based objects. In broad terms, mechanical engineering channels the energy and forces in nature to the service of people. The fields in which mechanical engineering professionals operate are wide - ranging from oil and gas, power generation, water utilities, process plants, mining, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and defence.
A diploma in mechanical engineering is ideal for anyone wanting to get involved in the general engineering (whether design or maintenance) of large plants, especially as a plant engineer. Recently, mechanical engineering has begun to include many new systems in the electronics and control arena such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and SCADA as these are critical to the control of mechanical devices.
Students in the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) School of Mechanical Engineering can study an Advanced Diploma of Mechanical Engineering with subjects that include: mechanics, structural engineering, drive systems, rotating equipment, hydraulics, pneumatics, lubrication engineering, HVAC, pumps, compressors, machinery safety, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
The focus in the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) School of Mechanical Engineering is in providing students with both deep and broad skills in mechanical engineering technology, focusing on real systems. Whilst there is probably not a shortage of theoretically orientated practitioners in mechanical engineering, there is a need for highly skilled, practically oriented engineers, technologists and technicians, due to the rapidly increasing use of new technologies which are becoming a key component of all modern plants and equipment. Studying our mechanical engineering diploma online means you don't have to take extended periods away from existing work commitments.
