PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION

This Master Degree (or Graduate Diploma) is an academically accredited program by the Australian Government agency (TEQSA) and does not currently offer entry-to-practice to Engineers Australia - Professional Engineering status. Engineers Australia are considering this and other programs for those students desiring professional status (e.g. CPEng). The outcome of this review may or may not result in a student gaining chartered professional status if he or she does not already possess this. However, it is recommended that you directly approach your local professional engineering body for an individual assessment and/or recognition.

Details

Introduction

The Master of Engineering (Electrical and Instrumentation in Oil and Gas) is a comprehensive qualification for Design, Installation, Commissioning and Maintenance Engineers who are looking for a career in the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry. The course addresses the specific core competencies and associated underpinning knowledge required for the position of Principal Engineer.


There are twelve units in the degree which cover electrical & instrumentation (E&I) engineering, its design and the management of E&I personnel. Other topics include process control, process safety lifecycle management and the safety integrity of facilities. Power engineering, maintenance management and specialist areas such as emergency shutdown systems, fire and gas are also covered. The course is rounded off with a unit on project management.
 

The Masters project thesis, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and purpose; it reinforces the knowledge gained during the degree. As a significant research component of the course, this project requires students to examine and explore their subjects, make critical evaluations and apply their knowledge and skill. It aims to prepare and enable students to critique and potentially enhance current professional practice in the Oil and Gas industry.

Professional Development Series

In order to meet the exacting demands of the oil and gas, mining, manufacturing and downstream processing industries, modern plants are equipped with systems and devices which are needed to measure and regulate variables such as temperature, pressure, flow, humidity, liquid level, velocity and density. Industrial Automation provides the technology to control and monitor a process plant using such concepts as feedback, cascade, feedforward and advanced process control. Here at the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT), we have developed industry-focused programs in the form of vocational diplomas, advanced diplomas and graduate certificates, all the way up to Masters level in the higher education sector.

There is a critical shortage of automation, instrumentation and control engineers, technicians and technologists around the world now due to the retirement, restructuring and rapid growth in new technologies and industries. The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) organization estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the USA alone.

In keeping with the philosophy of EIT, students in this school are exposed to the practical, up-to-the-minute knowledge and skills demanded by leading industries worldwide, with online instrumentation courses. EIT does not just cater to a generic student body, instead all of our online instrumentation courses are specific to industry. The programs cover a large range of topics and are suited to anyone needing an intensive and practical look at all facets of industrial automation, instrumentation and process control.

The short courses that form part of EIT's professional development series are designed to provide students with critical knowledge and practical tools that can be immediately applied to the workplace. They are ideal to up-skill and/or cross-skill in a particular area or technology and are not accredited programs.

Students in EIT's School of Industrial Automation, Instrumentation and Process Control study subjects which include: process control, instrumentation, control valves, process plant layout and piping design, tuning of process loops, SCADA, PLCs, advanced process control (APC), boiler control, hazardous areas, safety instrumentation (IEC 61511 and IEC 61508), HAZOPs, industrial data communications, networking, deviceNet and Fieldbus, industrial wireless, radio telemetry systems, shielding/EMC/EMI, and noise reduction.

Accreditation

Professional Accreditation – do you need it?

In most countries there are two forms of accreditation for engineering qualifications - national accreditation/recognition by the Government, and professional recognition by an Engineering society or association.

In Australia, national accreditation of higher education qualifications is undertaken by the Australian Government regulator; “TEQSA” (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency) – by Law, TEQSA are absolutely critical to any higher education being recognised.

The other form of accreditation is ‘professional accreditation’ though engineering societies such as; Engineers Australia or Professionals Australia. This professional recognition may help in obtaining employment, although an employer's requirement for this seems not at the levels it used to be - generally because the type of degree being studied, one's actual experience and past training are far more influential with potential employers.
Few engineering Master, and no PhD, degrees are accredited by Engineers Australia. Remember, if a qualification is not accredited by Engineers Australia, you can still apply for professional recognition by Engineers Australia on an individual, case-by-case basis.We are proud that we already have two Advanced Diplomas accredited by Engineers Australia, and are continuing to work with Engineers Australia to achieve accreditation on our Master and Bachelor degrees as soon as possible.

It should be noted that whilst confident, EIT cannot guarantee or commit to when (and if) we will receive accreditation from Engineers Australia for any of our other qualifications.
